Tooth pain can be excruciating and can interfere with every other aspect of your child's life. Sleeping, going to school, or concentrating on everyday tasks can seem to be impossible when dental problems are causing constant pain and a visit to an emergency dentist is needed.
At Helotes Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we specialize in providing the best pediatric dental solutions to our patients suffering with tooth pain and can often provide you with same-day or next-day emergency dentist appointment times to help your child manage pain and ensure their continued oral health!
Knocked Out Tooth
A knocked out tooth is a common dental problem. At Helotes Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we strive to immediately take care of our patients who are experiencing this painful dental emergency.
Teeth can be incredibly strong, but they can still chip, break or crack. Remember, treating a broken tooth at home is not an option; you need to bring your child in to see Dr. Moreno as soon as possible! Many teeth can start out with a small break and would only need a basic filling, but the longer treatment is delayed, the bigger the problem becomes.
Broken Dental Filling
As advanced as modern dentistry is, broken fillings can still happen. The most important thing to remember is not to delay seeing our San Antonio pediatric dental team to get treatment for your child's broken filling.
Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. Fortunately, we can help! If treated immediately, these infections are easy to recover from and can be prevented from causing lasting damage to your child's mouth. After treatment, Dr. Moreno will likely prescribe your child an antibiotic to treat the dental infection and prevent complications.
Is your child experiencing tooth pain? Does it hurt to chew or when air touches their teeth?
The first step to take if you notice your child is suffering with persistent toothache (for longer than a day or two) is to call Dr. Moreno to schedule a pediatric dental exam. During your child's appointment, our pediatric dental team will likely x-ray your child's tooth to help determine if a cavity, crack, abscess or other problem is causing their pain before discussing treatment options with you.
The first few moments after an oral accident are vital in determining if your child's recovery will go smoothly.
Dental trauma due to an accident is common and can happen due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries or physical altercations.
Don't Delay in Calling for An Emergency Dentist Appointment
