What to do in a dental emergency?

Call the number immediately so that operators can connect you to a dental professional in your Colorado community.

Many dental problems can be managed by an emergency dentist, but you need to seek immediate care. A few of the signs and symptoms that warrant emergency dental care from a Colorado dentist include:
- Uncontrolled bleeding in the mouth
- Severe pain that does not get better with over-the-counter pain medications
- A knocked-out tooth
- A severely chipped or broken tooth
- Dental appliances like braces wires that are poking the cheek or gum
- Swelling or bleeding in the gums
- Difficulty with opening or closing the jaw
My tooth was knocked out. Can a Colorado emergency dentist help?
Yes, a Colorado emergency dentist can save your tooth, provided you act quickly and reach the dentist’s clinic within 30-60 minutes. The first thing you should do is locate the tooth and pick it up by the crown (chewing surface). Avoid touching the root. Handle the tooth carefully. If it is dirty, gently rinse it with clean, cold water. Do not use any chemicals or soap. Do not wrap the knocked-out tooth in a tissue or paper.
Try to replace the knocked-out tooth in its socket in your mouth as soon as possible. Hold it in place by biting down gently on it or holding it in place with gentle pressure from your finger. If you cannot replace the tooth in your mouth, keep it moist in some milk or saliva in a clean container. You can even tuck the tooth into your cheek where saliva will keep it moist. If you have access to a tooth preservation kit such as Save-a-Tooth, you can use that.
Next, call the Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 where operators are on hand to get you an emergency dental appointment in Colorado. It is best if you are seen by a dentist within 30 minutes, to save the tooth, although sometimes it is possible for an emergency dentist to save a tooth that has been outside the mouth for longer. 1

I have hot and cold sensitivity. Do I need to see an emergency dentist?
Broadly speaking, tooth sensitivity is not a dental emergency. You can wait a few days or even a week or two to have it checked out. However, if the sensitivity is severe or it is getting worse over time, you should get it looked at by a Colorado emergency dentist. They might be able to give you some tips, such as changing your toothpaste brand, choosing the right type of toothbrush, or brushing correctly to avoid weakening the enamel on your teeth.
A dentist can determine whether a treatable problem like a cavity (tooth decay), a chipped or cracked tooth, or gum disease is causing your tooth sensitivity, and treat the problem appropriately. An emergency dentist in Colorado can perform a definitive treatment such as a root canal procedure to treat problems in the dental pulp (soft core of the tooth) and eliminate tooth sensitivity.
How do I pay for emergency dental care in Colorado?
Emergency dentists in Colorado accept most dental insurance plans and offer flexible payment options for people without dental insurance. The friendly operators at the Express Dentist hotline 1-844-593-0591 can help you find the dental care you need quickly and at a price that is affordable. Appointments are available seven days a week, including weekends and holidays, and both during and after regular business hours. You can get same-day treatment in many cases.

Will my dental insurance pay for emergency dental treatment?
The type of dental insurance plan you have will determine your coverage, i.e., how much your insurance company will pay and how much you will pay out of pocket for emergency dental care in Colorado. Some Colorado dentists accept private PPO insurance but are not contracted with state Medicare or Medicaid programs. Most dental clinics will contact your insurance company to determine your copay and out of pocket cost. This ensures there are no surprises when you are presented with the bill for your dental care.
As noted, the amount covered by your dental insurance plan will depend on the type of plan you have and the treatment you need. If necessary, emergency dentists in Colorado can help you secure financing. Many dentists offer easy payment plans to make dental care affordable.
If you would like to find out more about insurance coverage for a specific emergency dental procedure, call the Express Dentist hotline at 1-844-593-0591 today. Friendly operators are on hand to help you understand your dental plan coverage and find the dental care you need at a price that is affordable.
