What Is a Dental Emergency?
Trying to find urgent care when your child has a dental emergency is often a stressful, worrisome time for a parent. Unanticipated dental emergencies can arise from athletic injuries, trauma, falling, chewing tough foods, or a variety of other factors. Pediatric dentists Dr. Yvonne Felli and Dr. Ajikwaga Felli offer swift, emergency dentistry for children in a compassionate and positive atmosphere. We routinely treat a range of dental emergencies, from loose fillings and toothaches to dislodged or chipped teeth. Trauma to the face or mouth might not cause pain or discomfort right away; therefore, it's very important to have your child's teeth and gums examined for any hidden injury. At Cuddly Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we strive to provide prompt emergency dental treatment to help keep your child's smile healthy and happy. To schedule an emergency dental visit, please contact our Allen, TX dental office right away.
When Should My Child See an Emergency Dentist?
Children of any age can experience a dental emergency. Receiving urgent dental care as soon as possible is the best way to relieve any discomfort and preserve their oral health. In some cases, it might even mean the difference between keeping or losing a tooth. Drs. Dr. Yvonne Felli or Dr. Ajikwaga Felli offer emergency dental services to treat a variety of urgent needs, including:
- Severe tooth pain
- Loose teeth
- Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
- Infected or swollen gums
- Knocked-out teeth
- Lip or tongue bites
- Painful mouth sores
Treatment for emergency dental problems will vary for each child. During your child's visit, our pediatric dentists will gently examine the area and may take an x-ray to check for internal damage. Once we understand the extent of your child's emergency needs, we will review the treatment options with you. At our Allen, TX pediatric dental practice, our primary goal is to alleviate any tooth pain and identify oral injuries. We will do everything we can to improve the function, aesthetics, and health of your child's smile as quickly as we can. In some cases, follow-up appointments may be needed to fully address dental concerns.
"I had an amazing experience with my 5 year old and 3 year old boys. The office was very clean and kid friendly with all the vibrant colors. Teresa and Laurie were friendly, and made my boys feel comfortable for their first dental cleaning appointment. Dr. Yvonne and Ajikwaga Felli were very professional and informative. Overall, everyone was welcoming!"- N.M. / Google / Jun 05, 2022

"We were recommended to Cuddly from our hospital lactation consultant when we had our baby. He was born with a tongue tie and lip tie that made sucking hard for him when it was feeding time. From the first time we called them, Cuddly's employees are so kind and super nice. They listened and helped walked me through the process of getting my son an appointment to get it fixed. They called my insurance for me to make sure that the procedures were accepted and explained to me the cost. When we went to see them, the were always transparent about what is needed to be done, how much insurance would pay and what is the cost left to us. The dentist is amazing, she is so sweet and was great with our son and every kid that we saw in there. The dentist assistants were just as sweet and super thorough. We are so happy that we have found Cuddly, ever since we got the procedure done, my son has been able to sleep, feed and breath better. I would 100% recommend everyone take their kids here. They are great at easing your worries and aid you in understanding all this confusing health care stuff."- L.H. / Google / Sep 01, 2023

Emergency Dentistry FAQ
What is done during an emergency dental visit?
When you have your child see our emergency dentist in Allen, TX, we will quickly evaluate the area in question. This may involve taking x-rays or having an extensive exam. After the issue has been detected, we will start a treatment plan.
Is a bad toothache actually an emergency?
You will likely know how long your child’s toothache has lasted and the type of pain it has caused. It is always better to schedule an appointment to have it looked at, because a severe toothache can lead to additional issues for your child’s oral health.
What steps do I need to take if my child knocked out a permanent tooth?
First, you should retrieve the tooth by holding it at the top (instead of the root). It should then be rinsed off effectively while being sure not to touch it too much. Attempt to put the tooth back into your child’s respective tooth socket, then hold it with gauze or a clean cloth. If you cannot reinsert the tooth into the socket, place it in a small container with milk. Every moment matters when a tooth is knocked out, so please get in touch with Cuddly Smiles as soon as possible after completing these steps.
