- knocked-out teeth
- chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- sports injuries
- loose or missing fillings
- orthodontic discomfort from broken wires or brackets
- wisdom teeth pain
- abscessed teeth
- tooth or gum pain.

Why Call Bird Pediatric Dentistry?
We know that dental emergencies happen at inopportune moments.
When you need to speak with an emergency dentist, we’re here to meet your needs with compassionate pediatric care.
Follow the advice of our staff when you call for pain management recommendations and make the drive to our practice on Riverstone Way in Charlotte. The following information may prove helpful as well:
- Pediatric dentists recommend keeping knocked-out-teeth in a container of milk or between the cheek and gum while awaiting treatment. If possible, place the tooth back into the socket without forcing it.
- Skillfully positioned gauze can often slow bleeding significantly or even stop it. Bleeding that does not stop or slow down requires an ER visit.
- Toothaches in children are often associated with decay and require digital imaging to assess further. If your child is experiencing a toothache, call us to discuss treatment options.
- Sensitivity in teeth can typically wait until your child’s next office visit. If sensitivity turns to pain, call us immediately.
- If you’ve lost a filling, you can probably wait a couple of days to see us. You may experience pain or sensitivity in the exposed area. Call us and we'll let you know the proper course of action.
It can be challenging to determine whether your child is facing a real dental emergency or can wait to see us. We’ll help you make the right decision regarding treatment when you trust us as your child’s Charlotte emergency dental care provider.
