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.

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!
Mike Ferguson
I have been going to North End Dental for about three years now, and my experience with them has exceeded all expectations. Professional and friendly are words to describe everyone from the front office, to the dental personnel, to the dentists. A shout out to Abby who is so skilled, thorough, and caring in her work as a hygentist, and also to Dr. Moore whose expertise, experience, and precision in his work are so much appreciated! North End Dental is top notch!
Merrina Mendez-Itima
this office is so great! i love my whole team. they are efficient, transparent and caring. each visit is personable. i love going to the dentist! which is not something i would have said years ago before finding North End! thank you guys!!
Katie Bugge
I was greeted with a brand new hygienist after check in. She had just been at North End Dental a week. It would have been nice if someone had called to let me know that my regular hygienist was no longer with the practice. She was amazing. Allison was our new hygienist and she too was amazing. This is why I have given a 5 star. I have always had wonderful service at North End Dental. Allison listened to some things that the former Hygienist had done and was very acceptable to those as well as her own touch. She did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. She is a wonderful addition to North End Dental. WELCOME!!!!! Please don’t loose that customer service. I owned my own business for 15 years. I sold it in 2018. Customer service is so very important. It is lacking in todays businesses.
Josh Kacirek
This is the first time ever that i am excited for the future of my smile. To not live in pain everyday. It wouldnt have been able to happen if it was for North End Dental. I say that with experience as i have tried 75+ other dentists to have my teeth fixed and came up with the same answer, dental implants are for the rich. That was until i came here and they said let us work with you, let us help you. So glad i found this dentist.
Dylan Cross
Went in after I had a really bad trip and fall, so I was not doing so great. They were extremely kind and professional with me. I felt calm throughout the whole visit, and they were very accommodating to my needs. Kjersti was absolutely lovely and so caring. Highly recommend!
Cody Schmid
I recently had all 4 wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Hill. It’s difficult not to be nervous about such a procedure but having people who are so experienced really helps. The shots were as painless as they could be, the extraction process took maybe 20 minutes for all 4, and the price was half what I was expecting. Great place to go, happy I picked them and very pleased with how everything turned out.
Shawn McCaslin
Dr Moore is remarkably caring and attentive. My teeth don’t fit together well, and Dr Moore is reaching out to my orthodontist to work on my behalf. Abby is a highly proficient dental hygienist. My teeth are sensitive to ultrasound, and Abby worked to minimize discomfort, while still doing a great job of cleaning my teeth.
