Emergency Dental Visits For Your Child

Emergency dental visits are a common thing and unfortunately it is stressful for yourself and specifically your child.

Children are more vulnerable to dental emergencies than adults because their teeth are growing and developing and including children and teens can experience sport injuries. One of the most common emergency visits we receive are for toothaches (Typically caused by dental fractures or trauma). If your child has a toothache, you can help them deal with the pain by applying a cold pad onto the aching area, cleaning the area with lukewarm water, or take out any food that is stuck there if any.

Knocked Out Teeth

Visit your dentist office immediately if your child’s tooth has been knocked out. Normally pediatric dentist don’t try to reimplant baby teeth as it can harm the growth for adult teeth.

Timing is everything when it comes to saving your child’s tooth so be sure to:

  • Not touch the bottom or root of the tooth only just the crown.
  • Try to not let the tooth dry out which can mean the tooth cannot be saved. Keep it moist for the visit to the dentist.

Dental Concussion

A tooth that has been striked or banged on that has not been fully removed from the socket is identified as a “concussed” tooth. It can cause tooth discoloration especially for baby teeth. If the tooth has begun turning black, this means the tooth is slowly dying.


★★★★★ In my opinion, Teddy Bear Dental is one of the best Dentist Practices in San Juan Capistrano. Dr. Teddy Kim and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Kim.

★★★★★ I came to Teddy Bear Dental fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Kim was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
