Emergencies That Require an Emergency Room Visit
Some injuries involving the mouth and jaw require immediate attention in a hospital emergency room setting. These injuries may involve other considerations such as brain injury or the need for stitches. If your child experiences any of the following injuries, take them to the nearest hospital, not to a dentist urgent care center:
Split lip or tongue
Serious head trauma
In the case of trauma that results in pain in a tooth or teeth, it’s essential to make an appointment at a children’s dentist urgent care office. Sometimes, after ER treatment, the doctors refer you to a specialist like a dentist to take care of long-term tooth care. Following their advice may save your child from preventable complications down the road.
