Emergency Childrens Dentist Appointment Glasgow

slide2Do you need an emergency children’s dentist appointment at a practice in Glasgow? If so then you should come to our dental practice.

Here at our dental surgery in Glasgow we understand that there are a number of different problems which may arise with your child which would require an emergency appointment. We pride ourselves on setting aside appointments in emergency instances where your child may have to urgently see one of our children’s dentists.

If your child falls and knocks out a permanent tooth

If your child has fallen and has knocked out a permanent tooth then try to locate the tooth and pick it up by the chewing surface whilst being careful not to touch the root of the tooth.

If you find that the tooth is dirty or broken then put the tooth in a glass of milk and bring it and your child to us.

Chipped or broken tooth

If your child has a chipped or broken tooth then it requires immediate dental attention. Even if the damaged tooth is not a permanent one it is important that you bring your child because once a tooth has become chipped or broken bacteria can enter the tooth’s pulp or nerve, causing an infection.

When you bring your child to our dental practice in Glasgow, one of our children’s dentists will be able to evaluate the damage and seal the enamel which will keep the bacteria out and stop an infection. If you are able to locate the piece of the broken tooth then again, put it in a glass of milk and bring it with you to the appointment.

Toothache

If your child is experiencing toothache then it’s important that you bring them into our dental surgery. We are able to give your child something for it whilst ruling out any potential problems that there may be.

Teething

Children can be teething from a young age. Rather than watching your child in pain we may be able to give you something that will ease your child’s pain.

Our dentists

Each of the children’s dentists that we have available are fully qualified to be able to help your child during an emergency children’s dentist appointment. With their experience and skills, you can be confident that your child is in safe hands at our practice.

Childrens Dentistry Glasgow

accord1At our dental practice, we specialise in children’s dentistry in Glasgow. For several years, our surgery has had hundreds of children from all over Glasgow come to us for their regular dental checkups.

Children’s dentistry is what we do on a daily basis, as well as dealing with adults and offering cosmetic dentistry but more often than not we will have a child patient. Many people do not know that when a child is born you can instantly register with a children’s dentist, this means that you can take your child to the dentist to make sure that their teeth and gums are maintained from a very early age.

Some people are also not aware that you should be cleaning a baby’s gum pads as an early habit. We have kids from weeks old who come and see us and we deal with teething issues as well as many other issues.

Not only does registering your child with us from an early age make sure that the child’s teeth and gums are maintained it also helps them get used to coming to a dentist, so in later years when a child will need some treatment they won’t feel anxious about coming in.

We have a Childsmile programme in place at our practice. This programme has been designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland and reduce the inequalities when it comes to dental health and access to dental treatments.

Typically Childsmile is funded by the Scottish government and is made up of four elements. These are as follows:

  • Childsmile Core Programme
  • Childsmile Practice
  • Childsmile Nursery and School

.

We are able to tell you more about Childsmile and what we can offer your child at our practice in Glasgow. Simply make an appointment with us today by giving us a call or filling out our contact form.
