How to Find Urgent Care for Dental Emergencies

Do you need to find an urgent care dentist near you? At Kool Smiles, we understand that your child’s dental healthcare needs aren’t always expected and emergency services are necessary.

Keep reading to learn what to do in the event of a dental emergency. If you’re experiencing a true emergency, call 911 or go to your local emergency room.

What Should I Do in a Dental Emergency?

If your child is already a Kool Smiles patient and is in need of urgent dental care during business hours, take him or her directly to your local Kool Smiles dentist office. Call ahead if possible so we can prepare for your child’s treatment.

After hours, Kool Smiles patients can call our office to be connected with an on-call dentist.

If your child is NOT a Kool Smiles patient, or if your child has a true emergency that could be serious or life-threatening, take him or her to the nearest emergency room or call 911.

What Dental Emergencies Require Urgent Care?

Dental emergencies can occur at any time and it helps to be prepared if something happens to your child. First, you should know what qualifies as an emergency.

Some examples of dental emergencies include:

  • Damaged or broken teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Bad cuts on the inside of the mouth
  • Painful infections
  • Infected growths or swelling of the gums
  • Lost or broken fillings or crowns

If your child has one of these injuries or infections and it doesn’t appear to need a trip to the emergency room, an urgent care dentist may be the answer.

For Kool Smiles patients, call your local office in the event of a dental care emergency, and we’ll prepare for your child’s arrival and treatment.
