Emergency Dental Care in Beaufort
This can be a terrifying situation for you and your child! A dental emergency is when immediate attention is needed to prevent or stop severe pain, bleeding, or potential loss of a permanent tooth. Some common examples in children are:
- Trauma: injury to the face that results in a broken or loosened tooth, or a wound in the mouth. Sometimes this will result in a fractured or chipped tooth, exposing the sensitive inner layer. In more serious cases a tooth can be completely displaced from its socket.
- Toothaches: Severe pain in the tooth or jaw that cannot be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication.
