Colorado Springs Emergency Dentist
Dentistry Made Easy for You
A knocked-out tooth or bitten tongue can cause panic in any parent, but quick thinking and staying calm are the best ways to approach common dental emergencies and prevent unnecessary damage and costly dental restoration. This includes taking measures such as applying a cold compress to reduce swelling and, of course, contacting our office as soon as possible.
If you think you may be suffering from a dental emergency, call our office at (719) 470-2522 and we’ll be happy to help.
What Warrants a Dental Emergency?
Our experienced dentists 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.
