Emergency dentistry for children

What to do in a dental emergency

If your child has a broken, dislodged, or knocked-out tooth, please take the following steps:

  • Contact OPD Smiles as soon as you can. We will try to get them in for an emergency appointment.
  • Try to recover any pieces of the tooth that you can, making sure to only touch them by the crown (top part) and not the root (bottom part).
  • Have your child gently rinse their mouth with warm water.
  • Rinse the tooth with warm water as well, but don’t disturb any tissue that is still on the root.
  • Try to place the tooth back into your child’s mouth until you can see us. If this isn’t possible, put it in a container of milk or saltwater. It must remain wet to keep it viable for reattachment!

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Use a cold compress or OTC medicine to help manage any pain or swelling.
  • Use a clean rag or piece of gauze to control any bleeding.

If your child is in pain because of a toothache, you should:

  • Have your child gently rinse their mouth with warm water.
  • Look at their tooth to see if anything is stuck next to it. If so, use floss to try and remove it gently.
  • If this isn’t the case, your child can use a cold compress or OTC medication to help with any pain.
  • Call our team to get in for an emergency appointment.
