Emergency Pediatric Dentistry in Anthem, AZ

For more information on how to handle specific situations, please visit the Emergency Appointments page.

When we get hurt, our bodies are specially designed to start the healing process immediately. Blood rushes to a wound site to help clean it, so even if you have a tiny cut on your lip, you might bleed quite a bit. Mouth wounds can seem worse than they actually are due to more bleeding.

What is Considered a Dental Emergency?

Some mouth injuries need immediate attention to avoid the risk of infection or tooth loss. We encourage you to call Smile Explorers’ office in Anthem, AZ immediately if your child has:

  • An accident causing a cut or bitten tongue, lip or cheek
  • Cracked, falling out or knocked out tooth
  • Swollen or infected gums
  • Other severe tooth or mouth pain

Please don’t wait to contact our pediatric dentist. Injuries may not appear as severe, but without immediate treatment issues can worsen. We’ll examine your child as quickly as possible to determine the next course of treatment. The sooner you let us evaluate your child’s dental emergency, the better their chances of avoiding more extensive dental work and a fast return to a happy child.
