Bam! All of a sudden, your son or daughter has hit their mouth against the coffee table and cracked a permanent tooth. Or maybe they’re crying because of bad oral pain that’s just getting worse and worse over time. Whatever the case, emergency situations need experienced, compassionate attention that your family can trust in these difficult times. Please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and contact Texas Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics right away! With five convenient office locations in Irivng, Frisco, Melissa, Sachse & Greenville, TX, our doctors and the rest of our team are never too far away. We’ll accommodate your child as soon as we possibly can – often on the very same day as your initial contact – and provide first-aid assistance over the phone as well. We consider the following cases to be urgent in nature:
While dental emergencies are never wholly preventable, there are steps parents can take to help keep their little one’s smile safer. Limit their exposure to foods that are overly sugary, sticky, tough, or chewy, and don’t let them chew on the ice in their drinks. Instruct them to use scissors when opening frustrating packaging instead of their own teeth. Additionally, always have them wear a sportsguard (preferably a custom-made model from our practice) when participating in their favorite athletic event. Most importantly, be sure to schedule six-month checkups and cleanings!
