Pediatric Emergency Dentistry in Boise & Meridian, ID

What Is A Dental Emergency?

Pediatric dental emergencies are any issue affecting your child’s mouth that is causing them a lot of pain, discomfort, or bleeding, and that you can’t resolve on your own. This can include things like dental injuries, toothaches, and more.

If your child is having an emergency, it’s important to get them the help they need in Boise right away. Our dentists offer immediate, same-day care at Dentistry For Children. By getting help right away, you can protect your child’s oral health, eliminate their pain and discomfort, and avoid further oral health complications. Contact us at (208) 384-9872 to schedule an appointment right away.

Common Dental Emergencies In Kids

Just like adults, kids can experience a lot of different dental emergencies. Tooth damage from slips and falls, contact sports, and horseplay is quite common, and this can include cracked, chipped, loose, or knocked-out teeth.

Kids may also suffer from tooth pain and toothaches, which may indicate a deep cavity or an infected tooth. While this is less common in kids than adults, children may also suffer from loose, damaged, or pulled-out dental work like a crown or filling.

All of these conditions demand immediate care to protect your child’s oral health. The sooner you get help, the sooner your child can get relief from pain, and the more likely it is that their condition can be resolved quickly and without invasive dental care.

Same-Day Appointments

At Dentistry For Children, we offer same-day appointments for all of our patients. We always have time built into our schedule to accommodate children who need urgent dental care due to damaged or painful teeth.

If your little one needs immediate assistance, don’t wait another second. Give us a call at (208) 384-9872 to explain the situation and get the help you need. Our dental team will schedule an appointment ASAP, and give you instructions on what to do before you come into our office.

We do take walk-ins at our offices, which are located at 651 E. Parkcenter Blvd, Boise, ID 83706, and 2320 E Gala St #100, Meridian, ID 83642 but we ask that you call ahead whenever possible. This allows us to prepare for your child’s visit, provide faster care, and ensure a better outcome.

After-Hours Appointments

We understand that dental emergencies don’t happen from 9-5, so we offer extended hours for emergency appointments at Dentistry For Children.

Our regular hours end at 5 PM, but if you give us a call for same-day care and can’t make it in before we close, we’re happy to stay late and provide your child with the care they need. Just give us a call to let us know when you come in, and we’ll make sure your child gets the care they need.

Weekend Appointments

In some cases, we do provide weekend appointments, but this is rare. We typically reserve these appointment slots for the most serious dental emergencies that require immediate care and attention, such as a knocked-out adult tooth. To inquire about our weekend availability, just call our team at (208) 384-9872.
