If your child is experiencing ongoing tooth sensitivity, this may indicate a dental emergency. If you notice swollen gums or a swollen jaw, this is also indicative that you should call your emergency kid’s dentist in Palos Heights, CA.

If your child grinds his or her teeth, ask your emergency kid’s dentist in Palos Heights about a custom nightguard.
