Dr. Keta is equipped with specialty pediatric training to handle dental emergencies. If you have any questions, from a loose baby tooth to a dental accident, our highly-skilled team will walk you through what you need to do. Call us! Dr. Keta is on-call at all hours to manage those moments where parents are concerned or confused when our office is closed. We will do everything we can to see your child as soon as possible.
If your child loses consciousness or you feel they have another serious injury, you should immediately call 911 and proceed to the nearest emergency room.
Call us immediately if your child has a/an:
Tooth knocked out
Chipped, broken, or cracked tooth
Broken or lost filling/crown
Large object caught between the teeth
Injury to the gums
Injury to the jaw
Tooth displaced, pushed in or out
The most urgent dental emergency is a permanent tooth avulsion (knocking out an adult tooth). Call Dr. Keta immediately and follow these steps:
Locate the tooth
Hold the tooth by the crown, not the root
If the tooth is permanent, reimplant it into the socket
If you can't reimplant it, bring the tooth to us in a glass of milk
