Can you treat my child’s dental emergency?
If you are unsure whether or not your child’s injury is considered an emergency, you can also call us to learn more. Our knowledgeable office staff will help you determine if the injury is serious enough to be emergent.
Common pediatric dental emergencies include:
- Heavy bleeding after trauma to the mouth
- Heavy bleeding after losing a tooth naturally
- A tooth that has been knocked out
- A cracked or fractured tooth that is accompanied by pain
- Severe swelling or inflammation
Conditions such as teething, mildly chipped teeth, cavities, or minor toothaches are not considered to be pediatric dental emergencies. If your child is complaining of any of these symptoms, our staff will schedule our next-available appointment for you to be seen during regular business hours.
Don’t Hesitate to Call
Our pediatric dental office has an emergency line available 24/7. If you need to reach us after our regular business hours, simply call us at (217) 875-3080 and follow the instructions listed in our voicemail. Dr. Bret will then be in touch to schedule your emergency dental appointment!
