• We Are Here for You!
    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
    • Severe toothache
    • 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:
    • Remain calm
    • 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
