Even a minor chip or break in your child’s tooth can weaken its structure and lead to an infection. Don’t hesitate to get treatment, come to Timber Kids Dentistry right away if your child’s tooth has been damaged by oral trauma.
Minor cuts will heal on their own, but large cuts and lacerations may require sutures and cleaning to ensure that they heal properly and do not become infected. Call now if your child is experiencing excessive oral bleeding.
At Timber Kids Dentistry, we’re always here to help your child get the dental care they need. That’s why we offer convenient appointments for all of our patients. Need after-hours care? We’ve got you covered. We’re open on weekends, too, so you’ll always have access to the emergency dental care you need. Give us a call now to discuss your child’s symptoms and let us know that you’ll be coming in.
For minor chips and damage, dental bonding is a great way to quickly restore your child’s tooth and prevent further complications. We’ll apply a dental resin to their tooth and reshape it to fix the damaged area.
For major breaks, cracks, or other damage, a dental crown may be a better option. Crowns are shaped just like a natural tooth and they are placed over your child’s enamel after the damaged material has been removed. This supports tooth structure and protects your child’s tooth from further damage.
If your child’s tooth is knocked out, it’s important to get help as soon as you can. To save a dislodged tooth, it must typically be replaced within 1-2 hours. First, recover the tooth, gently rinse it in warm water, and put it in a container of cold milk to keep it moist. Then, head to our nearest dental office ASAP to have the tooth splinted and replaced.
