Even when your child has preventive and routine care at our Upper East Side Pediatric Dentistry practice, dental emergencies can happen. In many cases, the difference between saving and losing a tooth depends on taking the proper action in the immediate aftermath of an injury.
I’ve written more extensively here on the website.
You should contact Dr Sara for emergency care ASAP in the case of:
A knocked-out (avulsed) tooth
A chipped or broken tooth
A cut or bitten tongue, lip, cheek that requires suturing
A toothache with facial swelling
The primary goals when treating a traumatic dental or oral injury are to:
Save teeth at risk of being lost
Prevent or treat infection
Restore function in the best possible way
