The Emergency Dentistry Treatment Process

Evaluation + Diagnosis

Upon arrival, our first priority is to create a comforting atmosphere for both the child and their parents. Our skilled team quickly obtains a thorough history to understand the nature of the emergency. We may also take digital X-rays for a clearer view, ensuring an accurate diagnosis is reached.

Come up with a Plan

Once we understand the problem, we formulate a tailored treatment plan considering both the child's and parent's needs. We ensure transparency by explaining all potential treatment options, and we use visual aids to show both the patient and parent what to anticipate throughout the process.

Pain Relief

While we aim to provide comprehensive care, our immediate concern is alleviating any discomfort the child might be experiencing. Immediate pain relief is our priority, even if full treatment might be scheduled for a later date. We employ the latest techniques to ensure your child is at ease.


Recognizing the urgency of emergency situations, we strive to schedule further treatments as soon as possible. Our team works diligently to arrange appointments based on the child's immediate needs, ensuring their oral health is restored in a timely and efficient manner.

Frequently asked questions

What should I do about a severe toothache?

If your child experiences a severe toothache, rinse their mouth with warm saltwater, gently floss around the affected tooth, and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Then, reach out to us right away, and we'll schedule an emergency appointment to identify the cause and provide the necessary treatment to alleviate their pain.

What should I do if my child knocks out a tooth?

Oops! If your child knocks out a tooth, stay calm and act quickly. Rinse the tooth gently with water, and if possible, place it back in the socket or keep it in a cup of milk. Then, contact us immediately, and we'll guide you through the next steps to save the tooth and provide appropriate care.
