Eagle River’s Dental Care Experts Share 3 Common Dental Emergencies in Infants, Anchorage, Alaska

When an infant or toddler needs emergency dental care, it’s important to head to a trusted family dentist as soon as possible. The team at Discovery Dental, in Eagle River, AK, offers both preventative and emergency dental care for patients of all ages. Getting to the dental clinic sooner rather than later is the best possible way to restore your child’s teeth to their original condition.

These dental care professionals emphasize getting expert treatment for these three common dental emergencies among infants and kids:

  • Broken Tooth: If your child experiences a break in the crown portion of a tooth, you should have it checked out at a dental clinic, especially if the tooth displays any change in color. The break can cause inflammation and possible infection if not treated by a professional.
  • Dental CareConcussed Teeth: Toddlers can be a handful, and during all that climbing around, they may bang their teeth on hard surfaces from time to time. When this happens but the tooth does not become dislodged, it is called a dental concussion. While it may not require immediate care right away, if the tooth begins to turn black, you should head to the dentist as soon as possible, as this change in color could be a sign that the tooth is dying.
  • Toothaches: While some dental pain is common in infants, when it doesn’t go away, this may indicate a range of possible emergency issues, including decay or a fracture. A dental care expert will examine your child’s mouth and offer treatment as necessary to ensure their teeth stay healthy.

For dental emergencies, the caring team at Discovery Dental in Eagle River provides superior care. To learn more about what they can do for your child’s dental health, visit them online, or call (907) 622-5437 to schedule an appointment today.
