My Pedia Clinic - Vaccination

Children are more likely to have accidents, like falling or getting hurt while playing sports or biting on something hard. These accidents can sometimes cause them to lose a tooth or have other dental emergencies. Dental emergencies can be scary for kids and parents, especially involving your little one’s oral health. That’s why our team at myPediaclinic is here to provide immediate and gentle care for your child’s dental emergencies.

What is a Pediatric Dental Emergency?

A Pediatric Dental Emergency is when something unexpected and urgent happens to a child’s teeth or mouth. It can be caused by accidents, injuries, or serious dental problems that hurt or worry the child. Some examples are a tooth getting knocked out, a tooth breaking, a very bad toothache, or any other painful or concerning issue. It’s important to see a dentist or healthcare professional quickly to take care of the emergency, stop the pain, and keep the child’s mouth healthy. If your child has a dental emergency, get help immediately from a Pediatric Dentist or go to the nearest Pediatric Dental Clinic in Dubai.

Common Pediatric Dental Emergency Situations 

Knocked Out Permanent/Adult Tooth

If your child knocks out a permanent tooth, quick action is important. Start by cleaning the tooth and rinsing it with milk. Place the tooth in a glass of milk or saliva and seek immediate care from your Pediatric Dentist. 

Toothache

For a toothache, begin by rinsing your child’s mouth with warm water to ensure it’s clean. Gently use a toothbrush or floss to remove any food residue. If there’s mild pain, you can apply a cold compress to the affected area to help soothe the pain.

Knocked Out Baby Tooth

If a baby’s tooth is knocked out, avoid trying to reinsert it. Instead, schedule an appointment with the Pediatric Dentist to check for additional injuries and ensure everything else is fine with your little one’s mouth.

Broken Jaw

Take immediate action if your child shows signs of a broken jaw, such as difficulty opening the mouth or misalignment. Immobilize the jaw using a towel or necktie, and promptly take your child to the Pediatric Dentist for evaluation and treatment.

Dental Concussion

A dental concussion occurs when a tooth experiences trauma but remains undamaged in its socket. This condition is common in toddlers and may cause temporary tooth discoloration. If you suspect a dental concussion, it’s essential to consult a Pediatric Dentist to check for signs of a dying tooth.

Bitten Cheek, Lip, or Tongue

If accidentally biting the cheek, lip, or tongue, clean the area with water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If bleeding persists, contact the Pediatric  Dentist to determine if a clinic visit is necessary.

Object Caught in Teeth

If your child has something caught between their teeth, gently remove it with dental floss. Should you encounter difficulty, contact the Pediatic Dentist for assistance. Never use sharp tools to avoid causing damage to the teeth or gums.

Broken Tooth

If a tooth breaks, call the Pediatric Dentist immediately and take your child for an emergency check-up. Rinse the mouth with cold water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If you find broken tooth fragments, keep them in milk and bring them to a dental clinic in Dubai.

Bleeding After a Baby Tooth Falls Out

To stop bleeding after a baby tooth falls out, use folded gauze and apply pressure to the area for around fifteen minutes. If bleeding persists, contact your Pediatric Dentist for further help & guidance.

Loose Tooth

To keep your child safe, it’s essential to remove severely loose baby teeth to avoid any chance of swallowing or inhaling them. If you need assistance with this, don’t hesitate to contact your Pediatric Dentist immediately. 

Tooth Luxation/Extrusion

Tooth displacement due to trauma is known as luxation or extrusion. If you suspect tooth luxation, seek an emergency evaluation from your dentist.

Oral Abscess

An oral abscess is an infection at the tooth roots, leading to symptoms such as fever, swollen gums, or a bad taste in the mouth. Seek immediate dental attention to prevent the infection from spreading to other body parts.

Aldo

I have been taking my kids to see Dr Yasmin for the past 3 years. My eldest broke her front tooth after a fall at 18 months old and somehow Dr Yasmin helped us save it and she still has it and a beautiful smile 3 years later!

Audrey

Recently my youngest had a trauma to a front tooth which resulted in her needing a root canal to save the tooth just before her 2nd birthday. We thought this would traumatise her but she actually has good memories of the experience saying the dentist tickled her mouth and was really keen to go for her next appointment!! The level of care and attention to childrens' behaviour and needs is really exceptional by Dr Yasmin and her whole team. Thank you!

Adriana

Dr. Yasmin is fabulous and has made my daughter's experience at the dentist a great one. All the staff from the min you enter are loving.
