When You Can’t Wait

You should immediately bring your child to an emergency dentist if he or she:

  • Experiences an extreme and unrelenting toothache
  • Breaks, chips, or cracks a tooth - Rinse with warm water and apply a cold compress; bring any tooth fragments to the dentist in a wet towel
  • Knocks out a tooth - Insert the tooth back into the socket, if possible; if not, tell your child to hold the tooth under his or her tongue while heading to the dentist
  • Breaks their jaw - Apply a cold compress to his or her face and immediately proceed to your dentist or the emergency room
  • Bites through their tongue or lip - Rinse mouth and use a cold compress to reduce swelling en route to our office

    The San Diego Emergency Dentist for You

    Scripps Ranch Pediatric Dentistry You Can Count On

    Sometimes the problem can be less clear-cut than a damaged or broken tooth. However, any time your child seems to be suffering from extreme tooth or mouth pain, we advise calling our dental office. A member of our team may be able to advise you on whether or not an after-hours visit is necessary. Either way, we will make you an appointment and help you create a plan to have your child or teenager feeling better as soon as possible. You can trust us to be there for you when you need us most.

    If you believe your child is in need of immediate dental care, contact us now at (858) 252-0577.
