There’s nothing like a toothache to throw a major wrench into your plans, to send you into overdrive in trying to soothe your child, and to leave you wondering what to do next. We know this because like just about every other parent in the world, when this happens to your kid, it can feel like the end of the world. Don’t worry. Keep a couple important details in mind and you’ll see your kid comfortable and smiling again in no time.
#1: Treating It Isn’t Convenient Now (But It Will Be Later)
Toothaches frequently show up when it’s very inconvenient. However, it’s important to focus on the long-term when this happens. True, trying to shuffled around the details of your schedule and your child’s day might seem nearly impossible. However, here’s the good news: Coming in to see us right now is much more preferable than waiting, coming in when your child is in excruciating pain, and finding out that you could have avoided the extra consequences, trauma, costs, and discomfort if you’d come in immediately. So if pain develops, you know what to do: Call us!
#2: It’s Not Your Fault
Have you been brushing and flossing with your child? Have you been bringing your child in for dental cleanings and checkups? You did not cause your child’s toothache. Something else did (likely bacteria). Sometimes, these things happen. If you’re worried that your prevention could be better or that you should have come in for sealants long ago, let’s discuss it! As for feeling like you’re the cause of the pain, let it go!
