If you child has an accident involving a tooth, please call our office as soon as possible. We will see your child immediately. If it is an after-hours emergency, please call our office line as the phone is forwarded to the doctor. The first hour after the accident is the most important in treatment of any dental trauma.
If a permanent tooth is knocked out, please rinse but do not scrub the tooth with water. Place the tooth back in the socket if possible. If not, please place the tooth in a glass of milk or a clean wet cloth and proceed to our office immediately. If the tooth is fractured, please bring any pieces you are able to find.
