The Treatment Process


The first step in treating a pediatric dental emergency is a thorough assessment. Dr. Prieve will examine your child's mouth to determine the extent of the injury and the best course of treatment. This may involve taking X-rays to get a clearer picture of the situation.

Pain Management

Once the problem is identified, the next step is managing your child's pain. This could involve administering local anesthesia, prescribing pain medication, or applying a cold compress. The goal is to make your child as comfortable as possible while we address the underlying issue.


The final step is the treatment itself. This could range from placing a filling, reinserting a knocked-out tooth, performing a root canal, or in severe cases, extracting a damaged tooth. The treatment will depend on the nature and severity of the dental emergency.
