Life is full of surprises, and not all of them are good! Children can damage their teeth through slips, trips or falls, or by playing sports. When life hands you and your child a dental emergency in Mesa, Arizona, our pediatric dentist, Dr. J. Cam West, and our team are here to help. Call Desert Sun Pediatric Dentistry at 480-275-5099 today if your child experiences a dental emergency. We can give you advice on dental first aid and schedule your child for a visit.
A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from a dental professional. At our office, we understand that you cannot always plan when your child will need our care. If your child experiences a dental emergency, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Our team
will schedule your child to meet with our pediatric dentist as soon as we are able so they can receive the care they need. We are happy to care for several types of dental emergencies, including:
- Severe, lasting toothaches or other types of tooth pain
- A lost dental restoration, such as a lost filling or crown
- Damage to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, cheeks, lips and gums
- A cracked, chipped or broken tooth
- A partially or fully knocked-out tooth
If your child suffers from one of these conditions or another type of dental emergency, please contact our office. Our team will also be able to provide you with instructions on how to take care of your child’s smile until you are able to bring them to our office to meet with us. If your child has experienced trauma to the head or neck, we recommend that you take them to the emergency room or your general physician before coming to us, even if their smile is also damaged. To learn more about dental emergency care, we invite you to call or visit us today.
