When to seek emergency dental attention?
Do you suspect that your child’s symptoms may be a little more serious than a toothache or a cracked tooth? If so, you may want to take them to their local hospital. Call 911 or head to the nearest ER if your child is dealing with heavy oral bleeding that you can’t get under control, or if there has been a serious injury to the face or mouth, or severe facial swelling.
If your child is dealing with a dental emergency, it’s important that they have a pediatric dentist they can turn to right away. Call Simply Children's Dentistry today at (912) 353-9993.
