What is Emergency Dentistry?

If you have a chipped or broken tooth, it’s important to call your dentist right away. They can provide the treatments necessary to address the severity of your injury. If it’s a minor chip or cracks, your dentist may polish the tooth to smooth the surface. However, if your tooth is cracked all the way through, it may require a dental crown or filling to repair the damage.

Toothache

A severe toothache or oral pain can be a sign of something serious, such as a cavity, infection, or abscess. If you are experiencing a toothache, call us immediately for an emergency appointment. In the meantime, you can try rinsing your mouth with saltwater and applying a cold compress to the outside of your mouth.

Chipped or Broken tooth

If you have a chipped or broken tooth, it’s important to call your dentist right away. They can provide the treatments necessary to address the severity of your injury. If it’s a minor chip or cracks, your dentist may polish the tooth to smooth the surface. However, if your tooth is cracked all the way through, it may require a dental crown or filling to repair the damage.

Knocked-out Tooth

If your tooth gets knocked out, pick it up by the crown and rinse it briefly with cold water. If possible, place it back into the socket. Hold it in place with a wet cotton ball or gauze. If you can’t do this, place the tooth in a container of milk or water with a pinch of salt. Call your Dentist Colorado Springs CO immediately.

Jaw Fracture or Dislocation

A jaw fracture or dislocation can occur after trauma from an accident or sports injury.

In severe cases, the jaw may be broken or dislocated, causing extreme pain. If you have injured your jaw, avoid applying pressure on it. If it is broken, you may need to wear a splint. If the jaw is dislocated, you will need to get it repositioned as soon as possible.

Objects Caught Between Teeth

Sometimes, patients cannot remove an object that is stuck in between their teeth. This can cause significant pain. You could attempt to remove the object with dental floss; but if that doesn’t work, you should go to the dentist for help. While a dental appointment might be unwanted, the dentist can usually remove the object and then provide pain management tips to help the patient manage any pain.

Abscess (infection)

An abscess is an infection that has formed inside a tooth or in the gum. It is caused by a pocket of decay or bacteria. Pain and sensitivity can occur when pressure is placed on the tooth. It appears as a yellow or green color on X-rays.

Zoey Ballard
After moving here from out of state, my husband and I were very nervous to start with a new dentist. We were/are so very impressed with the entire experience we’ve had since we’ve started coming here. I saw Dr. Umphlett whom was gentle, kind and extremely thorough. My husband saw Dr. Moore whom was equally gentle, kind, and thorough. We both see Abby as our hygienist, she is awesome! Not only is North End Dental absolutely beautiful on the inside, the people who work here are so kind and make sure that you are taken care of. We will not be seeing another dentist as long as North End Dental is in business. Thank you North End for changing our perspective on dentistry and for taking such good care of us!
Christine Kascak
I am currently unemployed and temporarily on Medicaid. I am a periodontal patient and also in Clear Correct treatment. The care plan and financing are pretty reasonable. I tried a cheaper route elsewhere, but I regretted it and returned to North End Dental. I love the staff and the office. I wouldn’t trust my oral health care to anyone else!
Lynn Wolfe
I broke a crown off in the front of my mouth. Went to North End Dental to see about getting it fixed. I also had other teeth missing making it hard to eat. It also made me uncomfortable meeting people. They got me in same day I walked in and did the exam. They recommended a treatment plan and in a week I had my first appointment to fix my upper teeth. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. Really pleased with outcome of the temporary crowns. Can’t wait to see the permanent crowns in 2 weeks. Would absolutely recommend anyone at North End Dental!!!
Billie Greenfield
Wonderful staff and office! I felt very welcomed and trust this office completely! Highly recommend! Toyan was so patient and both her and the Dr were the best!
Jean Twehues
This is a WONDERFUL clinic! I use to hate going to the dentist, wouldn’t go for years due to a bad experience at another dentist clinic. Then I found this clinic a couple years ago.This is a small clinic, they not just care about you as a patient but treat you as family. I most recently was going thru some other medical issues and I received a card in the mail with a little get well note from everyone. It meant a lot to me to receive that in the mail. They greet me by name when I come in. I have never really had to wait more than 5 minutes. If I did they would send someone out to give me update on how much longer the wait would be. Everyone in the clinic has smiles and is sociable, even the doctors. Very relaxed environment. My teeth went from a complete mess to feeling and looking good! And the heated toilet seat in the bathroom is great on a cold winter day 😂. I love this clinic!
Shanna Miller
It all started with Chrissy, she made me feel that there could be hope for a better life. No she didn’t promise me anything, she only listened and made me feel cared about instead of a dollar sign. When I got to the office, they took me in for my x-rays two hours before my actual time. The staff was amazing, they made me fill welcome and every was explained to me the way I could understand. It was the best dentist experience I have ever had!! Shanna Miller
James Farmer
I had a crown put on my tooth today, and as with other crowns from this dentist, it’s perfect. Dr Moore is the only dentist I will let touch my teeth, and I have been going to him for more than 20 years. Dental assistant Toyan was also great and very professional. I love these guys!
Mona Carranza
The best staff ever!! Because of them I feel hope and optimistic for my future!!! They were very personable which made the environment welcoming and made me feel valued as a person! I’d recommend them time and again!
