What can I do for my child’s toothache?

I find that Children’s Motrin or the generic version, ibuprofen, works best for tooth pain.  I do not prescribe narcotics for dental pain under any circumstance.  If ibuprofen is not effective at managing your child’s tooth pain, you can call my office to discuss alternatives for pain management. 

Children's Dental Emergencies

If your child is in a lot of pain, they knocked out a tooth, or their tooth pain presents as sensitivity to temperatures, then it may be a dental emergency. If that is the case, our office will be able to get your child in sooner to treat their dental pain fast.
