When your child accidentally knocks a tooth out or wakes up in the middle of the night from a painful toothache, it’s possible that you will need to make an emergency dentist appointment.
If you are experiencing a true medical emergency, call 911 immediately. Otherwise, call Kool Smiles for an emergency dentist appointment.
At Kool Smiles, patients can get in touch with an on-call dentist. If your child is having a non-life threatening dental emergency, give us a call to schedule an appointment.
If your child is complaining about pain in areas in or around their mouth, it’s important to find out what is causing it. Some examples of injuries that may be dental emergencies include:
In the case of an injury, it’s important to seek emergency dental care as soon as possible. If the pain is severe or there is a lot of blood loss, call 911 or seek urgent care immediately.
If your child is a current Kool Smiles patient, you can get access to our emergency services, even after hours or on Saturdays.
If your child’s dental emergency happens during the day, call your local Kool Smiles and bring your child in. By calling us before you bring your child, our office can prepare for your child’s service before you arrive. You don’t need to make an appointment for an emergency.
Even if your child has an emergency at night, you can still call local Kool Smiles to be directed to an on-call dentist.
If your child is not a current Kool Smiles patient and is facing a true emergency, please call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.
At Kool Smiles, we work hard to give your child the dental care they need to grow strong, healthy teeth. If you need to make an emergency dentist appointment for your child, call Kool Smiles today.
