Neonatal Dentistry and Baby Counseling

In rare cases, children are born with teeth (natal teeth) or develop them within a month after birth (neonatal teeth). Though temporary and typically harmless, it’s important to have a dental specialist take a look at them to make sure there is no chance of them causing the child any discomfort or pain. If not treated, they may lead to refusal to feed, mutilation of the tongue due to the teeth’s sharp edges, dehydration, and ultimately cause growth and development problems.

Give us a call today at (719) 593–8488 and allow us to help care for your baby’s teeth.

Dental / Teeth Emergencies in Northeast & East Colorado Springs

Dental emergencies can be traumatic and victims typically want or need care right away. Some common dental emergencies are:

  • A knocked-out permanent/adult tooth
  • A cracked tooth
  • A severe bite to the tongue or lip
  • A toothache
  • An object stuck in the mouth

If one of these dental emergencies has happened to you, here are some tips to help ease your discomfort until you can get to a doctor:

  • For a knocked-out tooth, keep the tooth moist at all times, either by keeping it in your mouth or soaking it in milk.
  • For a cracked tooth, rinse with warm water to cleanse the area, and then apply a cold compress as necessary to help minimize the swelling.
  • For a bitten tongue or lip, keep the area clean and use a cold compress as necessary to help minimize swelling.
  • For toothaches, rinse your mouth with warm water and floss near the ache to clean out any caught food.
  • For any object stuck in your mouth, use floss to attempt to gently remove it.

Never try to remove something or clean out your mouth a sharp or pointed object.

Regardless of your dental emergency, it is important to visit the hospital or dentist as soon as possible, to help prevent any further complications or injuries.

If you experience a dental accident such as a toothache, broken teeth and/or a mouth injury, call our office right away at (719) 593–8488.
