Toothache

A child’s toothache is usually caused by a cavity getting bigger. We have lots of different treatmnts and strategies to get rid of toothache.

Swelling

An abscess or swelling can appear on the gum or face when bacteria in a cavity get deeper into the tooth. We’re here to alleviate the pain from tooth abscess, making your child feel better.

Broken tooth

  • Sometimes it’s a bike accident, a sibling wrestling match, or even biting into a metal fork in the wrong way…broken teeth happen all the time. Bring the broken piece with you if you can find it.
  • Knocked out teeth often happen for the same reasons and again, we see this in our practice very often. Is it a baby tooth that’s been wiggly for a while? Then, no worries – save it for the tooth fairy. Is it an adult tooth? Grab it by the white crown portion, give it a quick rinse under cold water and put it back in the socket before calling the office to make an appointment to see Dr. Fran.

Loose tooth

Baby teeth start coming loose from as early as age 5. If your child has a loose baby tooth, start the wiggle!
If a tooth is loose from a trauma, especially if it’s an adult tooth, keep it steady by biting into a clean cloth and call the office.
