Emergency Pediatric Dentistry in Westminster CO
It is natural for kids to be energetic and adventurous. Sometimes that spiritedness leads to a visit to the emergency room. But in the case of a dental emergency it can be difficult to know who to call.
What is an Emergency Pediatric Dentist?
An emergency pediatric dentist specializes in urgent care for children in the case of trauma and or infection. So what does this mean for you as a parent? This means that your child will receive critical care regardless of the time of day or night.
Emergency pediatric dentistry is created to quickly relieve your child of any pain that may be caused from trauma, toothaches and abscesses. Emergency dentists have considerable training in pain management, tooth repair and removal and treatment of dental infections. Emergency dentists make every effort to see your child in the shortest delay, and work to keep them relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.
What is considered a pediatric dental emergency?
The most common causes of pediatric dental emergencies are trauma and infections. But any dental issue that could jeopardize the eventual health of the tooth should be considered a dental emergency. Severe pain and excessive bleeding should be immediately addressed.
Young Dentistry for Children has considerable experience in Emergency Pediatric Dentistry. Here is a recent review from Sandra, a first time mother and dental emergency patient:
“I had an extraordinary visit with this office, and Dr. Howe. My toddler needed emergent care, I had already taken him to the E.R, then a scheduled appointment at children’s hospital dentistry, after a run around between both as a first time mom experiencing a traumatic event with my toddler & his two front teeth I still felt uneasy after both of the professional opinions I was given. Neither the first nor the second handled the screaming toddler as well as this office, did. They stayed late and got me in knowing I felt it was urgent. Something as a mother is hard to find. Every other office I called tried to schedule us out to the end of the week. Dr. Howe and staff made that possible for me. The staff and Dr. Howe were professional, caring & realistic. I left knowing how to help care for my child’s new needs, I left knowing what to watch out for & as a parent himself I know he felt my worry. The explanation throughout the appointment put my anxiety to rest. I really am thankful for this visit. My insurance wasn’t accepted and I paid out of pocket but it was worth every penny. Thank you again to all of the staff here at Young Dentistry. In what could have turned into a total mom melt down. I left with relief.”
