Emergency Pediatric Dental Care | Deer Valley

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

When we get hurt, our bodies are amazingly designed to start the healing process immediately. Blood rushes to the site to begin cleaning the wound, so even a tiny cut on the lip can cause a lot of bleeding. Mouth wounds can seem to be worse than they actually are due to more bleeding.

Some injuries to the mouth need immediate attention to avoid the chance of infection or losing a tooth. We encourage you to call our Smile Explorers office in Glendale, AZ, if your child has:

  • An accident causing a cut or bitten tongue, lip or cheek

  • A cracked, falling out or knocked out tooth

  • A Swollen or infected gums

  • A Other severe tooth or mouth pain

Please don’t delay calling our pediatric dentists. Injuries don’t always look as serious as they may be, and without proper immediate pediatric dental care, more serious problems may occur. When you call, we can quickly determine if we need to see your child or if you may be able to relieve the pain and treat the injury at home. The sooner you seek our evaluation, the better the chance of avoiding more extensive dental treatments … and the faster your child will be back to their smiling, happy, active self.

For gentle, friendly, child dental care,
