Dental Emergencies

Many children experience dental emergencies due to sport accidents or facial trauma. If your child is experiencing a dental emergency in San Antonio, Texas, call The Dentists for Kids at 210-696-2563 as soon as possible to make arrangements to meet with one of our skilled pediatric dentists. Time can sometimes be a factor in restoring your child’s smile, so please do not hesitate to call us. Dr. Peter Gurr and Dr. Scott Jensen will also provide you with instructions on what to do until you can bring your child to our office.

A dental emergency is a situation that requires prompt attention from a dental professional. At our office, we understand that you cannot always plan when you will need our care. If you experience a dental emergency, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Our team will schedule you to meet with our pediatric dentists and orthodontist as soon as we are able so you can receive the care you need. We are happy to care for several types of dental emergencies, including:

  • Severe, lasting toothaches or other tooth pain
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A chipped or broken tooth
  • Damage to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, cheeks, lips, and gums
  • A cracked or fractured tooth
  • A partially knocked-out (extruded) tooth
  • A lost dental restoration, such as a lost filling or crown

If you suffer from one of these, or another type of dental emergency, please contact our office. Our team will also be able to provide you with instructions on how to take care of your smile until you are able to come to our office to meet with our pediatric dentists and orthodontist. If you have experienced trauma to the head or neck, we recommend that you visit the emergency room or your general physician before coming to the pediatric dentists and orthodontist, even if your smile is also damaged.
