Children and Toothaches

Veteran parents generally have a good idea of what to do when a child catches a cold or has a fever.  However, they may not know what to do if a child has a toothache.

First, if the child’s face is swollen, apply a cold compress and contact Northwest Children’s Dentistry, your Tucson pediatric dentist, immediately.

However, if the child is complaining about a mild toothache, clean the affected tooth thoroughly. Rinse the child’s mouth with warm water or use dental floss to dislodge any food in the gums. DO NOT place aspirin or heat on the gums or on the aching tooth.

If pain persists, contact us.
