Emergency Care Services
Dental emergencies can happen at any time, especially to enthusiastic children who love being as active as possible. If your little one is experiencing significant dental pain or injury, please don’t hesitate to contact Smiles University in Bastrop, TX as soon as you can. Our phone system will handle the call no matter what time of day it is. In the meantime, here are some tips for how to best manage common emergencies until you’re able to reach us.
Knocked Out Tooth
There may be a chance to save the tooth! Make sure that you or your child doesn’t hold it by its roots; instead, rinse it carefully and then place it in a glass of milk or glass water mixed with salt. If it’s not too painful, it would be even better for you to replace the tooth and your child to hold the tooth in place within its socket. Whatever the case is, make sure to bring the tooth with you as you rush to our office.
It might be possible that a particle of food or other debris could be causing the discomfort. Floss around the tooth to dislodge anything stuck around the area. If the pain persists, contact Smiles U as soon as possible so that we can schedule an emergency appointment for your little one.
Time can be of the essence when it comes to dental emergencies. Please contact our doctors and dedicated staff at (512) 321-KIDS (5437) to schedule an appointment for your child as soon as possible!
