We treat trauma of all kinds
Hospital ERs and general urgent care facilities do not have the onsite expertise and tools to treat dental problems properly. In fact, MDs are not qualified to perform many of the services that are our “bread and butter,” from extractions or teeth removal to emergency root canal therapies to preserve badly damaged or traumatized tooth structures. Even those dentists who can perform these treatments often simply offer emergency care as a nice additional or side service. For Urgent Dental of Denver, emergency dentistry is at the heart of what we do. Our patients have peace of mind that we will truly see them the same day and as soon as possible and that our responses to their urgent conditions will be in the absolute best interest of their long-term health and well-being.
Examples of dental trauma that require our unique level of skill and care include:
- Knocked-out (“avulsed”) teeth – A tooth may become dislodged from its socket. When a tooth is fully dislodged, we may be able to re-insert and successfully re-implant (preserve) it. Minutes really do matter in these circumstances. Call us immediately so we can work with you to ensure the appropriate, immediate after-care to “save” your tooth.
- Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth – Everything from blows to the face during sports activities to chronic wear and tear and diseases like decay can weaken the tooth and make it vulnerable to damage. Depending on the type and severity of the fracture or damage, we may still be able to save the tooth with procedures like precision and well-tolerated root canal therapy.
Sometimes, injuries or trauma can affect the supportive bone in the jaw as well as other soft and hard oral tissues. We can advise on the best steps to take now to increase the odds of preserving a tooth and its support structures. Then, we can further evaluate to recommend the ideal treatment for your trauma and to effectively address your specific circumstances. When accidents arise, do not delay to call (720) 573-2629. Urgent Dental of Denver, CO, is here for you with emergency dentistry services that are truly responsive and that you can trust. We can also advise on ways to prevent future trauma; for instance, sports mouthguards can be customized to fit your one-of-a-kind mouth to optimally protect your teeth, face, and jaws from costly and traumatic injuries.
