Emergency Dental Treatment For Children in Ottawa, Ontario
Tooth is avulsed (knocked out with root attached)
Primary tooth (baby tooth): Leave it out, put pressure on the socket to stop any bleeding. Call the dentist for a follow up appointment.
Permanent tooth: Hold the tooth by the crown, being careful to not touch the root. If you feel comfortable, rinse off the gross debris with milk but do not rub, and place it back in the socket and come to the dentist immediately. Another option is to completely cover the tooth with milk and immediately bring your child and the tooth to our office.
Chipped or Loose tooth due to trauma
Try to find the piece of tooth that has broken off. Call the office as soon as possible.
Call your orthodontist first. If unable to reach the orthodontist, feel free to us.
If the cut is outside the lips, see your medical doctor or CHEO. If the cut is inside the lips, apply pressure with gauze or a clean, moist cloth and call our office.
Dental Pain or Gum (Gingival) Swelling
Dental pain and/or swelling can be a sign of infection. Please call our office for an evaluation and treatment. If swelling is visible on the face your child needs to be seen immediately. If unable to contact our office, head directly to CHEO.
