Children’s Dental Emergencies Campbelltown

Dental accidents can occur anywhere at any time. Your child’s permanent tooth may be saved or lost depending on how you respond to dental emergencies.

If your kids experience a dental emergency, get them to help right away. Delaying therapy may increase complications and necessitate more involved medical care.

Our after-hours children’s dentist can provide gentle care in a family-friendly setting. Since many kids have anxiety when going to the dentist, we work hard to ensure that every child feels secure and at ease while receiving care.

Please contact us to set up an appointment if your kids are experiencing oral pain or another dental emergency.

Is it a dental emergency?

If you’re not sure what a specific dental emergency is, consider the following:

  • Is the child bleeding from the mouth?
  • Is a child in excruciating pain?
  • Are there any avulsed teeth?
  • Is there swelling in your mouth?
  • Is there any swelling around the teeth?

You would have a dental emergency if you answered YES to any of these questions. Your child may be experiencing a dental emergency and should immediately see a paediatric dentist.

Keeping cool is crucial when facing a child’s dental emergency. The greatest method to gently deliver the necessary first aid measures is to end your child’s suffering immediately. Everything will go more smoothly if you maintain control of the situation.

We’ve compiled a list of the most frequent paediatric dental crises and first aid instructions to assist you.

Dental Pain/Toothache
  • Use lukewarm saltwater to rinse your child’s mouth. This helps to relieve pain and tenderness.
  • To reduce swelling and uncomfortable twinges, apply a cold compress.
  • Floss their teeth and check for any residual food residue.
  • Do not feed your child aspirin or apply aspirin to the afflicted tooth or gums. This can only lead to more complications.
  • Most importantly, schedule an appointment with your dentist.
Object Caught Between Teeth
  • Use dental floss to get anything lodged between your child’s teeth out.
  • Never attempt to free the trapped object with a metal, plastic, or sharp tool. Give us a call right away if dental floss is unable to remove the thing.
Broken, Chipped or Cracked Tooth
  • To lessen or prevent swelling in your kid’s face, place an ice pack on the afflicted area and have your child rinse their mouth with warm saltwater.
  • Find and save the broken piece of the tooth if you can.
  • Right away, visit the dentist.
Dislodged or Knocked-out Tooth
  • Give your youngster a warm saltwater mouth rinse. (Eight ounces of water with half a teaspoon of salt)
  • To minimise swelling, apply a cold compress.
  • Find and hold the tooth in place. Do not touch the root; instead, grasp it by the crown.
  • If the tooth is unclean, gently wash it for 10 seconds with lukewarm water; otherwise, let it alone.
  • Reinsert a permanent tooth by gently biting down on a fresh piece of fabric.
  • If it’s a baby tooth, don’t try to put it back in because doing so could harm the permanent tooth that is growing underneath.
  • Put the tooth in milk, salt water, or saliva to soak it.
  • Within 30 minutes following the injury, visit the dentist.
Bitten Tongue or Lip

If your child bit their lip or tongue hard enough to cause bleeding, carefully wipe the injury with warm water and apply a cold compress firmly to the region to lessen or prevent swelling. If bleeding is present, gently press the area for ten minutes or until the flow stops.

What to do to avoid a dental emergency?

Never allow your youngster to chew or bite on ice, popcorn kernels, or other hard foods or objects. Use cushions and locks to childproof the edges of your tables, drawers, and other areas prone to accidents. For younger children, use car seats; for older youngsters, seatbelts.

How do I know if it's a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies are any dental issues that require urgent medical intervention.

Dental crises include cracked teeth, shattered jaws, knocked-out teeth, excruciatingly painful infections, and profuse bleeding.

Additionally, children who participate in sports are more likely to suffer dental injuries such as tooth intrusion, root fractures, or the unexpected loss of teeth.
