Nobody likes a sore tooth! Toothaches are common in children due to eruption of teeth, dental trauma and tooth decay. It's also fairly easy for food to become stuck in your child's teeth, which can cause discomfort. If your child has a toothache, we recommend the following steps:

  1. Clean the tooth with warm water.
  2. Check for food stuck in the teeth and remove it.
  3. Apply a cold compress to the face to reduce swelling.
  4. Call our office for advice or to schedule an appointment.
