Pediatric Dental Emergency FAQs

A dental emergency can happen anywhere, anytime: on the sports field, in a classroom, while playing at home, or even while sleeping.

Some of the most common children’s dental emergencies include:

  • knocking their own tooth out
  • losing a tooth while playing with another child
  • breaking or losing a tooth in sports
  • dislodging a tooth that doesn’t completely fall out
  • biting the tongue/lip
  • painful gum abscesses and bleeding
  • getting a severe toothache of unknown origin
  • receiving an impact to the jaw
  • getting an object stuck in the teeth/mouth

All of these are emergencies that should be evaluated as soon as possible. In an emergency situation, call 911. Contact Kids Smile Pediatric Dentistry for emergency care in our office or at Rady Children’s Hospital. We work with many insurance plans.

First, Dr. Bagheri and our staff will help calm and reassure your child during this difficult experience. Dr. Bagheri will perform a physical examination to assess the status of your emergency.
