Early Adult Tooth Growth FAQs
What if I cannot find the knocked out tooth?
If you are unable to find your child’s knocked out tooth, don’t worry — bring your child to our clinic, and we’ll discuss options for teeth replacement.
How can I prevent my child’s teeth from being knocked out?
If your child plays an active sport where there’s a risk of being hit in the mouth, such as rugby or hockey, a custom mouthguard made by one of our dental specialists is the best protection for your child’s teeth.
My child has Special Needs and has trouble at the dentist. Can you still treat their early adult tooth growth?
In most cases, we can perform basic dental x-rays, exams, and cleanings for children who have Special Needs. Our Charlottesville cavity dentists are experienced and enjoy working with kids who have Special Needs, including kids with Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, children on the Autism Spectrum, and children who deal with dental anxiety.
We’ll do our best to help your child relax so they can receive the dental care they need. In some cases, we will recommend nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or other sedation dentistry options.
