Children’s Dental Emergencies

Chidren’s dental emergencies can be unfortunate, and even scary, when they happen, but the trained children’s emergency dentists at Northern Nevada Children’s Dental and Orthodontic are ready for when they do. Whether it’s playing too rough or simple bad luck, call us immediately to schedule an appointment and get your child on the road to recovery.

Our team can treat emergencies like:

Fractured Teeth

Sudden impact can break teeth at the gumline, exposing the tender pulp and potentially even the root within. Because of the many blood vessels in the mouth, broken teeth may be accompanied by bleeding—but this will usually subside fairly quickly. Your child’s dentist will first treat any bleeding or pain, and then attempt to reattach the teeth (if they can be recovered).

Tooth Pain

While painful and even debilitating on it’s own, tooth pain can also be considered a symptom for more severe problems. If your child is experiencing severe tooth pain, pain that is prolonged, or pain that returns after a period of time, call your child’s dentist to schedule an examination promptly.

Other Emergencies

Sometimes an emergency doesn’t look or feel like a sudden impact or debilitating pain. If your child notices something wrong or different about their teeth, it may be a symptom of an underlying problem. Make a note of your child’s complaint and call us for an examination and treatment.

Types of Anesthesia Available at Northern Nevada Children’s Dental and Orthodontic

Anesthesia is an important tool in providing children and adults with a comfortable dental experience, and Northern Nevada Children’s Dental and Orthodontic offers different options for patients requiring or requesting anesthesia. All of our anesthetics are safe for children and are administered by a trained medical professional. Call today if you have questions or would like to know more about the specifics of how anesthesia is used in our clinic. The types we offer include:

Local Anesthesia

Local Anesthesia is used as a numbing agent for isolated areas in need of treatment.

Nitrous Oxide (or “laughing gas”) is useful for longer treatments where patients may be anxious or stressed.
