A typical appointment with pediatric dentists in Carlsbad is a planned event in order to have the child’s teeth checked on a semi-annual basis. Most parents hope that a regular check-up is the only time that their child visits the dentist, but occasionally dental emergencies arise that require immediate dental care.
What is a dental emergency? If an accident happens that causes the child’s tooth to break or fall out, then it is best to talk with one of the pediatric dentists in Carlsbad at Carlsbad Children’s Dentistry. Even if the tooth is a baby tooth, it is possible for permanent damage to occur. For best results to minimize dental problems later in life, you should have your child visit a dentist immediately after the accident occurs.
Another example of an emergency visit is if the child has a toothache. When a young child is in pain, they have a difficult time sleeping or moving about through the other activities in the day. So, a toothache should be addressed immediately so that the pain can go away.
If an emergency situation has occurred, contact Carlsbad Children’s Dentistry as soon as possible at (760) 633-1131. We will make time in our schedule to care for your child.
