Emergency Dentistry in Boulder, CO
Do not hesitate to call a dental professional if you have an emergency. Dental emergencies that we treat in our office include:
Have you just broken or chipped a tooth? If the tooth has a sharp edge, place paraffin wax or sugarless gum on the area. You can also take a pain reliever at home before you visit our office. We can provide a dental filling, tooth bonding treatment, or a dental crown, depending on the extent of your tooth damage. The tooth’s location will also impact the type of treatment that is right for you.
Lost Permanent Tooth
If you have just knocked out a permanent tooth and can locate the tooth, rinse the tooth roots in cool water. You can try to place the tooth back in the socket and bite it down. If you cannot replace the tooth this way, transport it to our office in a cup or saliva. You may also keep the tooth on the side of the cheek to keep it moist. We may be able to replace the tooth if it is preserved. We also offer dental implants and implant-supported bridges and dentures for patients with one or more missing teeth.
Broken or Lost Dental Restoration
Please contact our office if you have just broken or lost a crown, filling, bridge, or denture. Do not try to place the restoration back in your mouth because you can damage your teeth or gums. We can create a new restoration for you.
There can be many causes of toothaches or tooth pain. A tooth abscess, tooth wear, gum disease, or dental injury can cause toothaches. If you have sudden or severe pain, please call our office. We can provide dental fillings, tooth crowns, and periodontal therapy for patients with toothaches. Our team will find the source of your pain and plan prompt treatment.
Object Stuck Between Teeth
If you have an object stuck between your teeth, gently floss to dislodge the object. Call our office if you cannot remove the object. Do not use other tools to remove the object because you can damage your teeth or injure your gums. We use specialized dental tools that can remove the object and prevent further pain or injuries.
