The most common dental emergencies result from trauma to the teeth after an accident or a sudden toothache. In either of these cases, your child may experience difficulties with speaking, an inability to eat, or continue with normal tasks, such as attending school.
Children are imaginative and full of energy, so accidents are bound to happen. If your child suffers a traumatic injury to their teeth, especially if a tooth has been broken, an emergency dental visit may be needed.
Toothaches are another common reason your child may require emergency dental care. When your child complains of a toothache, this is a sign that there might be a diseased tooth that has progressed enough to cause pain. In these cases, an emergency dental visit can help immediately address the discomfort and save your child’s teeth.
