Immediate Care for Dental Emergencies

What Qualifies as a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency involves any oral health issue that requires urgent attention to relieve severe pain, stop bleeding, or save a tooth. Common dental emergencies include severe toothaches, abscesses, tooth knock-outs, cracked or broken teeth, and lost fillings or crowns. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's crucial to seek professional help right away to prevent further damage or complications.

Common Dental Emergencies We Treat

Severe Toothache and Pain

Toothaches can be debilitating, but they often signal underlying issues such as cavities, infections, or gum disease. Immediate treatment not only alleviates pain but also addresses the root cause to prevent further health risks.

Abscesses and Infections

An abscess or infection can be life-threatening if not treated promptly. Our emergency dental services include drainage, infection control, and follow-up care to ensure complete recovery.

Broken or Cracked Teeth

Fort Collins' active lifestyle means accidents happen. A broken or cracked tooth can be painful and harmful to your dental health. We provide swift care to repair the damage and restore your smile.

Lost Fillings, Crowns, or Bridge Work

Losing a filling, crown, or bridge exposes your teeth to potential damage and decay. We offer quick replacements and repairs to protect your teeth and maintain your dental work.

Why Prompt Treatment for Dental Emergencies is Crucial

Delaying treatment for dental emergencies can lead to serious complications, including increased pain, infection, and even tooth loss. Our Fort Collins emergency dental team is ready to provide rapid response to alleviate pain and treat the cause effectively, ensuring your dental health is immediately preserved and restored.
