While our goal is to prevent dental emergencies, we understand that the need for urgent dental care is sometimes necessary and can be a stressful experience for both parents and children. We strive to handle dental emergencies promptly and with compassion.
Whether an emergency happens during our normal business hours or not, know that you can always call us at 646-389-8055, and that you have access to our doctors 24/7 if you are a Tree House Pediatric Dentistry patient of record.
Should your child avulse an adult tooth, it is best to place it immediately back in the tooth socket; if this is not possible, or too uncomfortable, it is important to keep the tooth in liquid (milk, saline, or ‘Save-a-Tooth’) until you are able to be seen by the doctor.
*Please note that should your child have a traumatic event during which they lose consciousness, become dizzy, or experience nausea or vomiting, please first consult with a physician to rule out any pressing medical concerns.
