Emergency Dentist for Kids
The Greatest Smiles on Earth is Worthington’s top children’s dentistry destination. The team handles dental emergencies, dentistry for children, dental sealants, dental filling, teeth whitening, and various orthodontic procedures.
Dental emergencies are often excruciating, but it’s best to seek immediate dental care. Don’t wait until the workweek if you’re suffering—many emergencies warrant a trip to the dentist. Orthodontic emergencies, like jaw fractures, may even require a trip to the emergency room in extreme cases.
Patients who are experiencing the following issues should visit our dental emergency practice as soon as possible:
- Uncomfortable or painful wires
- Wires immersing in tissue, such as gums, cheeks, or tongue
- Detached or broken wires or instruments
Other emergency services that may require a pediatric dentist include toothache, broken teeth, bitten lips or tongue, items stuck between teeth, or knocked-out teeth. Don’t wait to receive emergency pediatric dental care. If the patient is suffering from a dental emergency, seek help immediately.
Patients who experience microscopic gaps on molar (or premolar) surfaces are prone to tooth decay, usually as a result of the inability to clean the tooth thoroughly. Despite proper cleansing efforts, patients may still have issues with oral health as these tiny gaps trap food or germ particles.
Dental sealants can help. These products smooth the surface of the molar or premolar, and the bond prevents food or germs from finding their way inside the microscopic crevices. The risk for decay or infection decreases, and the patient will have a healthier smile.
After cleaning, the dentist places a conditioner on the enamel to seal the bond to the tooth’s surface. They apply the sealant and fill the gaps, setting the substance with a curing light. Dental sealants do not require a recovery time—any child or adult may resume their normal activities immediately.
When patients suffer from cavities or fracturing teeth, dental fillings prevent further decay and delay any need to remove the patient’s tooth. After clearing out the area, the dentist provides an array of materials to choose from for the filling, including porcelain, silver, gold, and composite materials.
You might be surprised at how natural ceramic and plastic fillings look, even as a quick fix from a kids’ emergency dentist in Worthington, OH. If you would like to explore your options on these treatments, have a look at making The Greatest Smiles on Earth your new dental home in Worthington.
