      What Warrants a Dental Emergency?

      Our experienced emergency dentists in Colorado Springs treat patients who are suffering from several types of dental emergencies, including:

      • Toothache: Sudden aches in your tooth can easily turn into something more serious, such as a root canal or gum disease. This can cause the gums to recede, leaving the tooth and roots completely exposed. If you’re experiencing intense pain, call our office immediately for treatment.
      • Dislodged Crown: Contrary to what many people have heard, you cannot glue a crown on yourself with superglue. This could lead to dangerous problems. ​If you have a dislodged crown, slip it over the tooth where it belongs and secure the crown temporarily with toothpaste or denture adhesive, and then call Dr. Hill to schedule your emergency appointment as quickly as possible.
      • Knocked-Out Tooth: If your tooth was knocked out, rinse it under warm water without scrubbing too hard. Then, place it in a cup of milk to keep the root from drying and bring it to our office as soon as you can. We’ll try to save your tooth if possible and, if not, we will discuss additional treatment options for replacing it.
      • Missing Filling: If your filling has fallen out, simply replace the empty hole with a little sugarless gum and call Dr. Hill for your next appointment as quickly as you can.

      Recognizing Emergencies with Braces

      Recognizing the need for emergency dental care with braces is crucial to address issues promptly. Seek emergency attention if you experience:

      1. Severe Pain: Persistent and severe pain not alleviated by over-the-counter pain relievers.
      2. Trauma or Injury: Any trauma or injury to the face, jaw, or mouth affecting your braces.
      3. Loose or Broken Wires: Wires poking or protruding, causing discomfort or potential damage.
      4. Loose Brackets: Brackets that have become loose or detached.
      5. Swelling or Bleeding: Significant swelling, bleeding, or signs of infection.

      If in doubt, contact our Colorado Springs orthodontist for emergency dental care for timely assistance or advice.
