Visit an Emergency Dentist in Denver, CO

Dental emergencies are uncomfortable and can happen at any time. You need a trusted lifeline to rescue you from discomfort and distress when they do. At Makowski Dental, our emergency dentist in Denver, CO, is here to help you when dental emergencies strike. From sharp pain to a cracked tooth or broken restorations, we can provide the care you need.

Common Dental Emergencies


Persistent and intense toothaches often indicate an underlying issue, such as an abscess or cavity. Neglecting the pain can lead to irreversible damage and sometimes tooth loss.

Knocked-Out Tooth

Quick action after a fractured, loose, or knocked-out tooth can mean the difference between preserving your tooth and facing a permanent gap in your smile.

Cracked or Chipped Teeth

A cracked or chipped tooth isn't just about appearance; it can also lead to excruciating pain and damage to the inner tooth structure.

Lost Fillings or Crowns

Restorations protect the underlying tooth structure, preventing bacterial infiltration and structural compromise. When you lose a filling or crown, your tooth becomes vulnerable to further damage and decay.

Abscessed Teeth

An abscess is a severe infection that causes intense pain, swelling, and systemic health problems if you don’t get treatment.

Bleeding Gums or Soft Tissue Injuries

Bleeding gums often indicate gum disease and result in the gum tissues becoming inflamed and vulnerable. Soft tissue injuries can occur when you have an accident or bite hard objects, causing trauma to delicate oral tissues, bleeding, and discomfort.

When Should I Visit an Emergency Dentist?

Severe Pain or Discomfort

If you're experiencing severe, persistent dental pain, please don’t endure it in silence. We're here to make you comfortable and, more importantly, to identify and address the root cause of your pain.

Swelling and Infections

Swelling in the mouth or signs of infection like pus indicate dental infections that spread rapidly. Please contact us as soon as you notice these symptoms to prevent further complications.

Trauma to the Mouth or Teeth

In cases of traumatic dental injuries, quick action changes the outcome. Whether it's a knocked-out tooth, a cracked tooth from an accident, or a sports injury, promptly addressing the issue increases your chances of achieving the best possible result.

Lost Fillings or Crowns

A lost filling or crown may not seem urgent, but it leaves your tooth exposed and vulnerable. Let us restore your tooth's protection to prevent further issues from arising.

Broken Dentures

When your dentures break or become uncomfortable, our emergency dental services can restore or replace them and ensure your smile remains intact and functional.

When Should I Visit an Emergency Dentist?

Dental emergencies don't follow a schedule. They can occur in the middle of the night, on weekends, or holidays. That's why we provide emergency dental care around the clock, 24/7. We're here when you need us most, ready to provide prompt and compassionate care and the following services:

  • Tooth extractions: We remove your damaged or problematic tooth to prevent further issues.
  • Root canals: We treat the infected or damaged tooth pulp to save your tooth and alleviate pain.
  • Crowns and bridges: Our emergency dentist uses crowns and bridges to restore your damaged or missing teeth and restore their function and appearance.
  • Dental implants: We place dental implants that provide a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.
  • Emergency dental care: Our emergency dental care offers immediate relief and treatment for your dental crises.

No matter what type of care you need, we are here to help. We understand that these situations are always going to come with some degree of stress, but we offer financing options to make paying for your emergency dental care as easy and convenient as possible.

What Should I Do If I Have a Dental Emergency?

  • Stay calm: In the face of a dental emergency, try to stay calm. Panic can exacerbate the situation.
  • Contact us immediately: Reach out to Makowski Dental as soon as possible. Our staff will walk you through the process, provide immediate advice, and schedule an appointment if necessary.
  • Care for your knocked-out tooth: If you've knocked out a tooth, handle it carefully, avoid touching the root, and attempt to place it back into the socket. If that's not possible, store it in milk or saliva and contact us for an emergency visit.
  • Other emergencies: In cases of toothaches, broken teeth, or other dental issues, follow the initial steps we recommend over the phone. We'll assess your situation and guide you in managing the pain and discomfort until you can reach our office.
