Dr. Maryam Sina - Dentistry For Children's Emergency FAQ
What do I do if my child has an injury to the mouth?
If you face a dental emergency, give us a call immediately. If you need urgent treatment after hours, you can call our emergency number. We are always here to assist when your child’s dental health is at risk. Below are tips on dealing with urgent dental situations; you may want to display this list on your refrigerator or store it near your emergency phone numbers for easy reference.
Bitten Lip or Tongue
If your child has bitten his lip or tongue severely enough to cause bleeding, clean the bite gently with water and use a cold compress (a cold, wet towel or washcloth pressed firmly against the area) to reduce or avoid swelling. Give us a call to help determine how serious the bite is.
Object Caught In Teeth
If your child has something caught between his teeth, use dental floss to gently remove it. Never use a metal, plastic, or sharp tool to remove a stuck object. If you are unable to remove the item with dental floss, give us a call.
Broken, Chipped, or Fractured Tooth
If your child has chipped or broken a piece off of his tooth, have him rinse his mouth with warm water, then use a cold compress to reduce swelling. Try to locate and save the tooth fragment that broke off. Call us immediately.
Knocked Out Tooth
If your child’s tooth has been knocked out of his mouth, find the tooth and rinse it with water (no soap), taking care to only touch the crown of the tooth (the part you can see when it’s in place). If you can, place the tooth back in its socket and hold it in place with a clean towel or cloth. If you can’t return the tooth to its socket, place it in a clean container with milk. In either case, call us immediately and/or head to the hospital. If you act quickly it’s possible to save the tooth.
If your child has a very loose tooth, it should be removed to avoid being swallowed or inhaled.
If your child complains of a toothache, rinse his mouth with warm water and inspect his teeth to be sure there is nothing caught between them. If pain continues, use a cold compress to ease the pain. Do not apply heat or any kind of aspirin or topical pain reliever directly to the affected area, as this can cause damage to the gums. Children’s pain relievers may be taken orally. Schedule an appointment immediately.
If you know or suspect your child has sustained a broken jaw, use a cold compress to reduce swelling. Call our emergency number and/or head to the hospital immediately. In many cases a broken jaw is the result of a blow to the head. Severe blows to the head can be dangerous and even life threatening.
You can help your child avoid dental emergencies. Childproof your house to avoid falls. Don’t let your child chew on ice, popcorn kernels, or other hard foods. Always use car seats for young children and require seat belts for older children. And if your child plays contact sports, have him wear an athletic mouth guard. Ask us about creating a custom-fitted mouth guard for your child. Finally, prevent toothaches with regular brushing, flossing, healthy diet, and regular visits to your pediatric dental office.
They are amazing with kids. My 4 year old son asked me if we could go back to the dentist the very next day! If my son want a to return to the dentis every day They are doing something right!
We started taking my daughter to Dr Sina couple of years ago. My daughter always had problem going to doctors, but Dr Sina's great attitude made her first dental experience a great one. I like the fact that she emphasize on preventive care and spend good quality time with each patient.
I love this office and have been taking my kids there for over 6 years, always friendly and Dr Sina is the best and great with the kids ..
Dr. Sina is very caring dentist. She's very knowledgeable and once problem is diagnosed, she gives you several options, if there is more than one, and you decide how you want problem handled. Staff are very friendly and do their best to get you into her schedule when problems arise. My kids just love her and have no problems from them when I tell them they have appointments with the dentist. She has been their dentist since they were old enough to go to the dentist. We are going to miss her as we are moving to Utah.
But it's definitely a great place for people of child age to go. Everyone is very friendly, kind, and concerned for all patients. Not a single rough person, everyone has gentle demeanors. I;m 19 and definitely feel old in this colorful environment but I go with my little brother and sister. I feel off my bike in January and chipped most of my front tooth off. Fell at around noon, had an appointment by 2 to get my mouth normal looking again. Dr.Sina even harassed my friend who took me to take me to the ER immediately afterward and they followed up by calling me to make sure I went later that day. Didn't have time to schedule a permanent fix immediately but they called to remind me all the same. :)
Friendly and helpful
Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. The office is organized and the lobby is kid friendly and inviting. The techs are very knowledgeable and Dr. Sina was patient. She took the time to answer any questions and gave us undevided attention.
