What You Need to Remember to Bring to Your Denver Emergency Dentist Appointment
While we’re busy setting up your appointment for you, you’ll need to go around and make sure you have a number of things ready to take with you.
You’re going to need your driver’s license, or some other form of acceptable personal identification, ready to present to the emergency dentist and their team when you arrive for your appointment. Bringing any recent documentation or general information you took home from a recent appointment with your regular dentist, if applicable, is also a great idea.
Any medications you’re currently taking on a regular basis should be made aware to the emergency dentist and their team. If you have any allergies that they need to know about, make sure you mention that, as well. Knowing about your medication and allergies is just to make sure nothing is given to you throughout your treatment that could potentially cause a negative or allergic reaction.
After we’ve called you to inform you where and when your emergency dental appointment will be, we strongly recommend you call the office ahead of time. It’s much more convenient to find out for sure whether or not your insurance, if you currently have coverage, will be accepted before your appointment. If you don’t have any coverage or your insurance isn’t accepted, asking for a quote isn’t a bad idea, either.
Emergency dentists operate much like your regular dentist does, which means you’ll want to arrive between 15 to 20 minutes before your appointment is scheduled to begin. The last thing you’ll want to do is cut into your appointment and feel rushed just to fill out paperwork.
This is also so you can ask the emergency dentist and their team questions and let them know about any uneasiness you have over going to the dentist. Don’t be afraid to speak up about your concerns. The emergency dentists, as well as all their staff, have quite a bit of experience in helping their patients be as comfortable as possible throughout the entire appointment.

Emergencies Most Commonly Treated by Emergency Dentists
Going through a dental emergency is never easy, especially when the pain is so severe you can barely think. Knowing even just a little bit about the emergencies most commonly treated by emergency dentists is the best way to prepare yourself for what could possibly happen in the future.
Unfortunately for us all, dental emergencies always seem to strike at the worst possible time. Whether you’ve cracked a tooth because of wear and damage over the years or had one or two knocked out in a car accident, one thing is for sure – dental emergencies, both minor and major, can strike at any point in time.
It’s extremely important that you remember to head straight to your local emergency room if you’ve sustained any sort of head trauma. Even if your mouth is a mess of lost teeth and injuries to the soft tissue, your head trauma must be treated before anything else.
Teeth That Are Lost or Knocked Out
Losing a tooth or having one knocked out is never an ideal situation, but it’s one that you can turn around for the better if you act fast enough. As we just mentioned above, you need to make sure that you’re free and clear of any head trauma other than your current oral health state.
If you haven’t sustained head trauma anywhere else and don’t require a trip to the emergency room, you should definitely try to locate the lost or knocked out tooth. As long as the tooth hasn’t become too damaged, and you make sure that you pick it up by the crown to avoid damaging the root, it can actually be implanted back in by the emergency dentist we set you up with.
Gently rinse the tooth off with water, making sure you aren’t handling it by the root or touching it too much. You can actually leave the tooth in a cup of water or milk as a preservation method until your appointment.
However, the best way to preserve a lost or knocked out tooth is temporarily placing it back into the socket yourself. If you choose to use this method of preservation, don’t force the tooth into the socket. You could damage both the tooth and the empty socket doing so, potentially making it impossible for the emergency dentist to successfully plant it back.
Developing an Abscessed Tooth or Oral Infection
Trust us when we say that oral infections, especially an abscessed tooth, will have you feeling a type and level of pain that you’ve never felt before and won’t feel again unless you develop another one.
Oral infections, in general, are a time-sensitive emergency that are just as dangerous, destructive, and has the potential to be equally lethal when compared to a bodily infection. An abscessed tooth, for example, seeps the infection through the root of each tooth, then later spreading into the soft tissues of the mouth.
More often than not, most patients don’t realize they have a developing oral infection until it becomes an unbearably painful emergency. Checking out your mouth with a small mirror regularly is the best way to catch an oral infection before it becomes your worst nightmare.
If you see what looks like a pimple or an obvious red bump on your gums, both signs of an oral infection, call us straight away. An abscessed tooth, however, isn’t easily spotted. They can form from a chip to a tooth along the gum line, creating an opening inside the tooth, for example.
Temporarily Fix a Filling or a Crown
Fillings and crowns are designed and further put into place to protect a tooth from further harm. Though both are built to last, they aren’t going to last for the rest of your life. A filling or a crown can fall out due to age, damage, overall wear, or a mix of all possibilities. Because they are there for protection, it’s important that you call us as soon as you can.
Until we can get you to your emergency dentist appointment, you’ll need to make sure you apply some damage control. A bad cavity that has created a large, gaping hole in the tooth, for example, will need to be covered completely as a temporary measure if a filling or cap has fallen out.
Whatever the case may be, if you don’t protect the tooth from further damage and exposure, the emergency dentist may be forced to extract it entirely instead of refilling or recapping it.
For temporary protection until your appointment, dental cement is the most effective preventative method to avoid further damage, but small pieces of gauze or cotton balls will also do.
Preparing for an Emergency Tooth Extraction
The thought of having to go in for an emergency tooth extraction can be frightening for a lot of patients. With this in mind, we’re going to go over how the process is done to lessen your fears. Having a good idea of what to expect is one of the best ways to rid yourself of some anxiety.
The procedure will begin with the extraction area numbed completely to ensure no pain will be felt. Once precise incisions have been made to help loosen the tooth, a pair of dental pliers will then be used to fully remove the tooth using rocking motions. If the tooth decides it doesn’t want to come out, the emergency dentist will break it up into smaller pieces and remove them in fragments.
The aftercare instructions you and the emergency dentist will go over once the procedure is completed must be followed religiously at home. Otherwise, the amount of time it takes for the extraction site to fully heal will take forever and you run the large risk of developing an oral infection.
Seeing an Emergency Room Doctor or an Emergency Dentist First
When an emergency strikes, whether it’s dental-related or not, you need to know where you need to go first for treatment based on your injuries.
Emergency room doctors are not able to save your teeth, but they can treat your head trauma, help manage your pain, and treat your injuries. Emergency dentists can’t treat your head trauma, but they can save your teeth, treat your oral injuries, and help with your pain to a certain extent.
Remember, head trauma comes before any other injury!
