Dental emergencies can’t wait. Without immediate proper treatment, your child is at risk for permanent injury or more serious and expensive treatment.

At Kool Smiles, we provide affordable emergency dental care for problems such as chipped or broken teeth and toothaches. Find a Kool Smiles location near you or call us today to make an appointment.

Kool Smiles Offers Emergency Hours

At Kool Smiles, we know that emergencies happen at the most unexpected times. That’s why we offer after-hour services and Saturday hours for our patients and their families.

While you can help your child avoid dental emergencies, it’s important to act fast if your child suffers an injury to avoid further pain and damages. Some problems may be treated at home, but others will need attention of a dental professional.

Common Dental Emergencies

Knowing what to do in a dental emergency is the first step toward safeguarding your child’s teeth and health. There are easy steps to take immediately when:

  • a tooth is knocked loose or forced completely out
  • your child experiences pain from a toothache
  • a cavity filling comes out
  • your child has a bleeding wound to the tongue, gums or lips
  • a tooth is chipped or cracked
