Emergency Care Services

At Dentistry for Children of Maryland in Potomac, MD we are providing you the emergency care for multiple dental emergencies: 

  • Tooth fracture – When kids play sports or are running around, it is pretty common to fall and have tooth fracture. If this is not the case, they sometimes bite onto something hard, resulting in a possible chipped tooth. Luckily we take care of these issues before it gets worse. We are offering treatments like fillings, crowns and more to restore the tooth right in time. We do not let your child’s smile fade out. 
  • Lip, cheek or tongue biting – For kids it is not new to have a lip bit, tongue or cheek injury. There can be any incident that leads them to have a rough wound and bleeding. We do recommend you to put pressure on the area, using an ice packet would be best. Make sure to bring your child to us as early as possible. We are here to provide you the best of services and care for your child!
