Irvine Emergency Dentist

Emergency Dental Care for Children in Irvine Do you know what you would do if your child ever had a dental emergency? We hope that this never occurs, but should it happen, contact us at First Smile Pediatric Dentistry. Our Irvine emergency dentist, Dr. Rabin Marfatia, can provide your child with emergency dental care, when needed. If your child experiences a dental emergency, contact our office and let us know that you need to have an emergency appointment for your child. In certain cases, our staff may give you specific instructions on what to do next. For example, if your child has a tooth knocked out of his or her mouth, time is definitely of the essence. Our office staff will let you know how you can safely transport the tooth to our dental office. In cases like this, it may be possible for our dentist to reinsert the tooth into your child’s mouth so that the tooth will not need to be lost and replaced with an artificial tooth. If the tooth is knocked out, do your best to locate the tooth. Pick it up by the enamel portion and gently rinse it under cool water. Never attempt to scrub the tooth or use any type of soap on it. If possible, put the tooth back into the tooth socket and keep it held in place with a clean washcloth. If this is not possible, you can put the tooth into a container of milk or in saliva. Then contact us immediately. If the tooth that was knocked out was a baby tooth, rinse the child’s mouth out with water, and apply any pressure if there is bleeding. This tooth cannot be reinserted, but it is important that your child’s mouth is still examined for any problems relating to trauma. If a tooth is chipped, you will also want to call our office so your child can be seen by our Irvine emergency dentist. Seeing our dentist quickly will reduce any chance of infection. If you ever need the services of our Irvine emergency dentist, never hesitate to contact our office for an emergency appointment. First Smile Pediatric Dentistry 250 E.
