What Types Of Pediatric Dental Emergencies Do We Treat?

At Absolute Dental in Las Vegas, Nevada, we treat a variety of pediatric dental emergencies. If your child is experiencing any of the following, you may want to seek the care of a pediatric dentist in Las Vegas. 

Painful Toothaches

Painful toothaches are one of the most common types of pediatric dental emergencies, and they can be caused by a range of factors. If your child has a severe cavity that they have not been seen for, over time, the cavity can grow and cause a painful sensation when eating, chewing, or drinking. Sometimes, this cavity can be severe enough to cause ongoing pain, or in many cases, it will feel like a throbbing ache that goes away but comes back throughout the day. 

If your child is suffering from pain because of a severe cavity, it is important to take them to see a 24-hour emergency pediatric dentist to address the pain and stop the spread of the infection.

Cracked Tooth 

A cracked tooth can cause immediate pain if the pulp within the tooth becomes exposed. The pulp of a tooth is the innermost part of the tooth. This soft area contains nerves and blood vessels. The outside area of the tooth, including the enamel, protects this sensitive part of the tooth.

However, trauma to the mouth area can cause a cracked tooth, which can result in extreme pain. If your child has cracked their tooth, the dentist can help alleviate the pain and repair the crack. 

Loose Teeth Or Teeth That Have Been Knocked Out

Loose baby teeth are a natural occurrence for children and should not be painful, result in a lot of blood loss, or cause other complications. However, if your child has a loose tooth or has lost their tooth because of an accident or other traumatic experience, you should seek dental care immediately. 

If the tooth has completely fallen out, apply pressure to the area to reduce bleeding. For many children, a lost baby tooth does not need to be replaced or repaired. However, a dentist may recommend a different dental device, such as a spacer, to help keep the alignment of the other teeth. 

Pain From A Loose Or Lost Filling

Cavities are a common occurrence for children, and cavities are generally repaired through a dental filling. However, if your child’s baby teeth have been repaired with a dental filling and the filling has become loose or fallen out, you’ll need to seek care at an emergency child dentistry office as your child may be experiencing pain. 

Broken Braces 

Braces are a common dental device used to help straighten the overall position of your child’s adult teeth. However, if your child’s braces are loose or have broken, or your child’s braces are poking them, you need to schedule an appointment with a pediatric dentist or orthodontist. Broken braces can lead to other oral health concerns and should be remedied immediately. 

Pain After A Wisdom Tooth Extraction 

Older children may undergo wisdom tooth removal. If the removal results in ongoing pain, discomfort, or swelling that does not go away, seek care from an emergency pediatric dentist immediately. Although rare, complications from wisdom tooth removals should be remedied as quickly as possible.

Other Damage To Your Child’s Mouth 

If your child experiences any damage or trauma, you must get in touch with an emergency child dentist office near you. An experienced dentist will examine your child’s mouth to see how the trauma has impacted your child’s teeth and what needs to be done to repair the damage.

How Do I Know If My Child Is Experiencing A Dental Emergency?

For many parents, it can be difficult to determine the difference between a simple, uncomfortable toothache and a true dental emergency. 

Generally, true dental emergencies involve your child being in a lot of pain that regular pain medication can’t manage. Even in those circumstances, the pain should be able to be managed so that a dentist appointment can be scheduled in the coming days. 

If your child has experienced some sort of trauma or has been involved in an accident that has damaged their teeth, this rises to the level of a true dental emergency. Getting immediate dental care is essential to minimize the damage and establish an appropriate treatment plan.

Emergency Dental Pediatric Dentistry FAQs

If your child is experiencing pain in their teeth and cannot eat, drink, or sleep, this may mean they have a severe cavity in one of their teeth and should be seen by a pediatric dentist immediately.

It is common to be in pain after a wisdom tooth extraction, but the pain will subside over the next couple of days. This type of pain is generally not considered a dental emergency unless your child is experiencing other symptoms, including non stop bleeding, excessive swelling, and breathing issues.

Yes, we offer same-day appointments and walk-ins. Search for Absolute Dental’s general dental offices near you to find the location closest to you.

We accept a range of insurance policies, including Delta Dental, Standard Dental, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, and others. Through our Smile Saver program, we offer competitive pricing for individuals without insurance and can negotiate lower rates for our non-coverage patients.
