As the parent of a child you probably already know that children have a tendency to get hurt quite severely in a lot of ways. This is natural, as kids want to run around and play but at the end of the day their skeletal structure and muscles as well as their joints are not capable of supporting the full range of movement that adults often end up taking for granted, and so the most common thing that you would realize is that your kids probably fall a lot.
While knee scrapes and other such situations are going to be important and should be taken care of, the most serious injuries that would occur would have to do with the mouth. A chipped tooth or an injured jaw as well as a tongue that was injured because your child bit it when he or she fell down onto the ground are all common injuries and the only person that can treat these injuries is an emergency dentist Baton Rouge. An emergency dentist would have the necessary skills to make it so that your child does not suffer from any lasting damage due to a fall.
Even after your child has grown up a little and has full control over his or her body, they can still get injured. Teenagers are physically more or less fully grown but their minds are still very young and so they can get injured quite often as well. It is therefore important to keep an emergency dentist on speed dial so that you can call them up right away when your teenager inevitably does something stupid and gets seriously injured in the mouth in the process.
