Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies can happen suddenly, and your Greeley, CO emergency dentist should be the first person you call. 

Even if your emergency happens during the weekend, in the middle of a holiday, or the middle of the night, you should call.

If you are experiencing uncontrollable bleeding or head trauma, we recommend that you visit an emergency room right away.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is anything unusual with your oral health, including:

  • Excruciating toothaches
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Broken tooth
  • Chipped tooth
  • Infection
  • Abscess
  • Cavity pain
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease

If you are in dental pain, please call Dr. Stewart and Dr. Buffington immediately so we can schedule you on the same day.

We never want any of our patients to suffer or try to tough it out. There's no reason you should! Once you walk through our dental office doors, we will take care of you.

Patients can expect a warm and welcoming greeting, coupled with our desire to make them as comfortable and relaxed as possible. 

Call Us Right Away If You Are in Pain

We do our best to help prevent dental emergencies from happening, but if they do—know that we can make them go away.

Dental pain, especially, is always a red flag. It lets us know that there are significant issues underneath the surface.

Our emergency dentists can quickly determine if you have an infection, gum disease, or tooth decay. Once we can establish what is wrong, we can quickly work on treatment and dental procedures. 

Your beautiful smile is in good hands at Norco Family Dental. Never hesitate to call us if you think there is something wrong with your oral health.

Emergency Dental Care in 80634

Once you get ahold of a member of our dental team, we will want to know more about your emergency, your level of pain, and the damage to your smile. We will help you determine if the situation is a real emergency, or if you can wait until the next business day for a dental appointment. 

If one of our dentists needs to see you right away, we will ask you to come into our dental office for an examination. Even if our practice is closed for the evening, members of our team will return to work, and we will treat your dental emergency. If you sustain a life-threatening or severe injury such as a broken jaw, or if you cannot get substantial bleeding under control, it’s always best to head straight to your closest emergency room. You can then contact our dental team once you are safe.
