Children’s dental emergency? Follow our five-step checklist

If your child has a toothache or an accident that damages one of their teeth, it’s important to get them to the dentist as quickly as you can.

Follow our five-step checklist below to give yourself the best chance of saving their tooth, relieving the pain and reassuring your child that everything is going to be alright. If you’re ever unsure of what to do in an emergency, call your local practice or 111 for further advice.

It might sound obvious, but preparation is key to dealing with a dental emergency. It’s always a good idea to have your local practice’s contact details to hand, and to make a note of your dentist’s arrangements for out-of-hours emergency care too.
