Emergency Dentistry Q & A

When would my child need emergency dental care?

If your child experiences severe mouth pain related to an accident, injury, or other reason, they may need emergency dentistry treatment. Urgent dental care helps to relieve your child’s pain and repair damage that may worsen if left untreated.

Dr. Hardie and his expert team provide timely, compassionate care for the full spectrum of children’s dental emergencies, such as:

  • Broken, chipped, or fractured teeth
  • Severely decayed teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Severe toothaches
  • Pain and injuries to oral tissue
  • Object caught between teeth
  • Dental abscesses
  • Lost or loose fillings
  • Orthodontic pain or injuries

What should I do if my child has a dental emergency?

If you suspect your child may need emergency dental care, you should call Hardie Dentistry for Kids as soon as possible. Dr. Hardie or a member of his expert team will ask questions about your child’s condition and determine whether urgent treatment is necessary.

They may also suggest home care methods to protect your child’s tooth in the time between the emergency and treatment. This could include — in the case of a knocked-out tooth — attempting to softly place the tooth back in its socket, or putting the tooth in milk.

Dr. Hardie and his team understand that emergencies are never convenient. That’s why they’re available 24 hours a day to treat established patients with dental emergencies.

If your child is already a patient and experiences an emergency outside regular office hours — 9am-4pm Monday-Thursday — call the emergency number.

If you’re a new patient, the team at Hardie Dentistry for Kids prioritizes your child’s dental emergency during normal office hours. New patients that need urgent care outside office hours should go directly to the emergency room.
