Is your child feeling pain? If your child has a toothache, the cause is most likely tooth decay. If food or debris is present, rinse the affected tooth with warm water or use dental floss to remove impacted food or debris. And call us for an appointment.
Another cause could be a tooth infection. Look for a red, swollen bump near or on the side of the sore tooth. Does it hurt when your child bites down? DO NOT place aspirin on the gum or on the aching tooth. If the child’s face is swollen, apply cold compresses. Call our office within 24 hours.
For any type of toothache, call us at 480-830-5466 to make an appointment.
