In our previous two blog posts about dental emergencies, we discussed reasons to visit the dentist for adult dental emergencies. In this post, we will discuss dental emergencies for kids or children. Orchards Dental in South Edmonton is a dental clinic that treats all kinds of dental emergencies. We accommodate same-day dental visits so you can see the dentist as soon as possible. We provide care to all of Edmonton, including the surrounding communities of Walker Lakes, Charlesworth, Allard, Callaghan, Mill Woods, Ellerslie, and Summerside.
Types of Children Dental Emergency Appointments
If your child has a dental emergency, such as a tooth that hurts or is painful or your child has fallen on his/her face, please notify us as soon as possible. Kids' teeth are not as strong as adult teeth, therefore cavities and infections can progress quicker. A large cavity can often appear as a black hole or a black spot on a child’s tooth. If you see a tooth with a hole in your child, that is usually something that should be dealt with as soon as possible. Sometimes, falls or accidents occur and may result in severe lacerations or cuts to the lip, which may need topical antibiotics and stitches to prevent irreversible scarring. Our Edmonton dental office is kid friendly and Dr. Dennis George Anithottam is experienced with making young children feel comfortable at the dentist. We have child-friendly hours so we can see your child after school hours if needed. Other regular hours such as mornings and around lunchtime are also available.
Orchards Dental is always welcoming new patients and we would be glad to help in the case of a dental emergency for your child. Whether your child has a bad toothache, infected gums, or fractured or knocked out a tooth, Dr. Dennis George Anithottam offers urgent same-day appointments for dental emergencies. Dr. Dennis George Anithottam is a dentist for kids and adults. Our Edmonton dental team will treat you and your family with gentleness and care.
