Find an Emergency Dental Clinic Near You

Dental emergencies are never convenient, and it can be very stressful for you when they happen to your children. If the emergency is serious and possibly life-threatening, you should call 911 right away.

If the emergency isn’t as serious, Kool Smiles patients can come directly to the closest dentist office. Kool Smiles offers emergency care services to patients at over 120 dental clinics around the country.

What to Do When Your Child Has a Dental Emergency

Kool Smiles can help with your child’s emergency. We offer extended hours and are even open on Saturdays to treat dental injuries.

No one can control when a dental emergency happens, so if your child loses a filling or breaks a tooth after hours, here’s what you should do:

  • If you are a Kool Smiles patient, and it’s after regular business hours, call us and we can direct you to an after-hours emergency dentist.
  • If it’s during business hours, call us ahead of time so we can prepare for your arrival.
  • If you are not a Kool Smiles patient, and it’s a serious emergency, call 911 or take your child to the nearest emergency room.

Common Dental Emergencies

Common dental emergencies your child may experience include:

  • Tooth is knocked loose or forced completely out
  • Cavity filling comes out
  • Toothache
  • Bleeding from the tongue, gums, or lips
  • Cracked or broken tooth

If your child is suffering from any of these problems, please bring him or her in for treatment. Ignoring any of these issues can result in permanent damage to your child’s mouth.
