Children’s Dental Emergencies Melbourne CBD

We care about your child’s comfort and want to ensure they remain pain-free.

If your child faces a dental emergency, call your Melbourne CBD dentist right away.

Delaying dental care can result in more complications and require more extensive and expensive treatment.

Is it a dental emergency?

If you are not sure of what a dental emergency is, answer the following questions:

  • Is the child’s mouth bleeding?
  • Is there severe pain?
  • Are there any avulsed teeth?
  • Is there any swelling in the mouth?

If your answer is YES to any of the questions above, a dental emergency is likely confirmed. If so, see your Melbourne CBD dentist right away.

Common Children’s Dental Emergencies

Here are some common children’s dental emergencies and the simple steps to follow to resolve the issue and have the best possible outcome.

For toothache, rinse the mouth with lukewarm saltwater to clean it out. Use floss to remove any food lodged in between teeth.

Do not put aspirin on the child’s tooth or gums, as this may burn the gum tissue. For persistent pain, contact your Melbourne CBD dentist immediately.

Broken/Fractured Tooth

Rinse the mouth with lukewarm saltwater.

Apply cold compress on the face to keep any swelling down.

Go to your Melbourne CBD dentist as soon as possible.

Knocked-Out Permanent Tooth

When this happens, try to locate the tooth and keep it with you when you bring it to the dentist. Handle it very carefully and try not to touch the root, as this could make it harder for your dentist to reimplant it.

Moisture is important for preserving the tooth, so you can place it in a container of milk or saliva to help prepare it for reimplantation.
