Dental Emergencies

When a child experiences a dental emergency due to a broken, cracked or dislodged tooth, or they lose a crown or filling, this can be a frightening experience for both the child and the parent. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we understand that. You can count us to handle your dental emergencies quickly and with the same calming manner children are used to experiencing our pediatric dentistry services. If Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry is not your regular dental provider, please do not hesitate to call on that account. We care about all kids and would welcome your willingness to trust your child to our care for any type of dental emergency.

Emergency Dental Care for Children

If your child should experience a chipped tooth or loss of a tooth due to some type of accident or trauma, call us at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry for emergency dental care. Our pediatric dentist, Dr. Chong, will evaluate the situation and offer treatment options and reassurance to you and your child. We are happy to provide the emergency care needed to protect your child’s health and the alignment of their teeth.

How to handle common dental emergencies:

  • Dislodged teeth. A tooth that is completely knocked out needs dental care immediately. The tissue and nerves can be damaged and there is a risk of infection. Please call us immediately. Be very careful on how the tooth is handled. Touch only the crown of the tooth. Do not wipe if off, even if it is dirty. Place the tooth in a cup of milk or a cup with your child’s saliva in it for transporting the tooth with you to our office.
  • Toothache. Examine the tooth and look for a bubble or swelling of the gum, as this could indicate an abscess, which usually should be treated with an antibiotic prior to additional dental treatment. Call our office for an emergency dental appointment. To ease the discomfort of a toothache, have your child rinse their mouth with warm salt water. A cold compress can also be applied to the face to bring down swelling. Children’s strength Tylenol can be given as well. Do not apply heat to the area.

Our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry is dedicated to the dental health of your family. When you have dental emergencies, contact our caring team right away. We will arrange an emergency appointment to repair your child’s teeth and ensure their continued healthy, beautiful smile.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
