Dental Pain:

Toothaches can be very difficult to cope with. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, greater than 51 million hours of school are missed each year due to dental related illness. It can affect the level of concentration in children and also affect their overall health.

If your child is having consistent toothaches, follow these steps:

  1. Check the mouth for any swellings or sores
  2. Call the office to make an appointment.
  3. Gently brush and floss the area if you feel there may be food stuck
  4. Give medication you normally would give your child for pain (ie: Tylenol, motrin)

If you notice facial swelling, redness and or fever not related to a cold, call the office immediately or go the nearest hospital.
