If you need an emergency dentist in Denver, Urgent Dental of Denver is the team for the job. Our urgent dentist, Dr. Boyd has years of experience in providing emergency dental services. We offer same-day appointments. We simply request that patients call ahead, as we cannot treat walk-ins.

We provide a full line-up of treatments for common emergencies, including:


Dental Accidents and Trauma

No matter how cautious you are, accidents happen. Unfortunately, these accidents can cause a variety of injuries, including damage to your pearly whites. If you have suffered a chipped or broken tooth, trauma to the mouth or jaw, apply ice to the injured area and call Urgent Dental of Denver immediately. Dealing with a chipped or damaged tooth can be frustrating and downright painful. Depending on the severity of the damage, the nerve in the pulp of your tooth may have been affected. This will likely cause sensitivity or pain. Thankfully, we can help!

Our urgent dentist has same-day appointment availability and our care team will ensure that you get the emergency dental services you need fast! We provide urgent dental treatments to the communities of south Denver, University Park, Cherry Creek, Cherry Hills, Denver University, Washington Park and the Denver Technology Center.

If your tooth has been knocked out, please follow the instructions below.


Knocked-Out Tooth

Millions of teeth are knocked out every single year. Fortunately, there is still hope if you have had a tooth knocked out in an accident or injury. If you act fast, the dislodged tooth can often be saved by bringing it to our urgent dentist, Dr. Boyd.

First things first: Pick the tooth up by the crown. Be careful not to touch the root as this can make it unusable. If the tooth is dirty, gently rinse off the debris with clean water. Do not use any soap or other cleaning supplies.

If you are able, put the tooth back in the socket as soon as possible. Do not be overly forceful. Instead, gently push it into place and hold it there. If you cannot replace it, submerge the tooth in milk or put it in your mouth, next to your cheek.

Now, contact Urgent Dental of Denver. While we do not take walk-ins, we can schedule an emergency appointment when you call ahead. By following the steps above, dislodged teeth can sometimes be saved. However, time is of the essence!


Dental Extractions

When possible, Dr. Boyd will attempt to save your natural tooth. Keeping your teeth intact and restoring them has a number of benefits. However, some teeth are simply beyond saving – they may even be causing you quite a bit of discomfort. A tooth may need to be pulled or extracted if it becomes irreparably damaged by decay or gum disease, or damaged beyond repair in an accident. Extraction may also be the best solution for overcrowded teeth or impacted teeth. However, When that happens, we can help.

Dr. Boyd has years of experience in providing emergency dental services. During that time, he has become a master in minimizing patient discomfort and calming anxiety. When an emergency or a planned extraction is necessary, we prioritize patient comfort.

Getting a tooth pulled is often viewed as a traumatic and unpleasant experience. However, Urgent Dental of Denver can make it a seamless and efficient process so that you can leave that dental pain behind.


Broken Appliances

Dental appliances serve a variety of purposes. Whether your appliance is designed to improve your quality of life or to protect the healthy development of your smile, having it break can be a serious problem.

At Urgent Dental of Denver, we do not just provide emergency dental services to deal with toothaches and mouth pain. We understand that you need your dental appliance to work as designed. Fortunately, Dr. Boyd has the knowledge and expertise to repair a wide variety of broken appliances such as mouth guards, night guards, retainers, crowns, bridges, implants and dentures.

If your appliance has broken unexpectedly, call our team about a same-day appointment. We will get you in as quickly as possible so that Dr. Boyd can make the necessary repairs to your appliance.


Abscessed Tooth

If you are suffering from an abscessed tooth, the condition can be incredibly painful. Tooth abscesses occur when a pocket of pus develops on a tooth as a result of an infection. These are usually caused by untreated decay or other dental ailments.

Fortunately, Dr. Boyd can help! When you are looking for an emergency dentist in Cherry Hills, University Park, or the greater Denver area, there is no better choice.

We provide a full array of services, including emergency tooth extractions and root canals. If you believe that you are dealing with an abscessed tooth, schedule a same-day appointment and let us take your pain away. The infection must be dealt with quickly to prevent more serious health conditions.


Root Canals

In the past, root canals were viewed as an incredibly uncomfortable and strenuous procedure. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. Using modern dental technology and methods, Dr. Boyd can minimize any discomfort while salvaging your natural tooth.

Root canals are necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes infected. Pulp consists of a combination of blood vessels and other sensitive tissues that lie below the enamel of your tooth. Infection occurs due to deep areas of decay that penetrate through to the core of a tooth.

During a root canal, Dr. Boyd will need to drill down so that he can access the pulp. The infected pulp will be removed from the root canals and pulp chamber. The access hole will be filled. Finally, Dr. Boyd will fit your damaged tooth with a crown to prevent further issues.

Root canals are necessary because they address a painful and potentially dangerous infection within your tooth’s pulp. The alternative is an emergency tooth extraction. While this option eliminates pain, it also puts your gums and adjacent teeth at risk for other complications.

Dr. Boyd will always strive to provide patients with optimal care. A root canal is one way of doing just that. It allows him to save an infected tooth while also providing patients with a natural-looking restoration in the form of a crown.

Dental Implants

Dr. Boyd provides cutting-edge dental implant services in Denver. Implants are by far the best solution when it comes to replacing real teeth.

Dental implants are indistinguishable from real teeth to the untrained observer. They are also extremely strong and durable, which means that you will be left with a new smile that functions as well as it looks.

Dental implants rely on titanium posts and custom-made crowns. The posts can be implanted directly into your jawbone, which results in superior bite strength when compared to other restorations. A crown is then affixed to each post, fitting seamlessly together to create your new smile.

With proper care, dental implants can last for 10 years or more. The posts will last a lifetime and never need to be replaced. When your implant crowns become worn or damaged, Dr. Boyd can repair or replace them.

Unlike other providers, Urgent Dental of Denver offers same-day dental implants. As soon as your implant posts are installed, we can place the abutment and crown. This means that you will be able to enjoy your new smile even sooner.


Crowns and Bridges

The team at Urgent Dental of Denver can also install crowns and bridges. A crown is used when a tooth’s enamel is severely cracked or damaged, but the roots are still healthy.

Dr. Boyd will create a custom crown that is designed to blend seamlessly with your smile. In this procedure, the damaged tooth is ground down and the crown is attached using dental cement.

Crowns are preferable to extractions. This is because the root of your tooth will continue to protect your gums and surrounding teeth. Whenever possible, Dr. Boyd will attempt to save your natural teeth.

Bridges are another dental restoration that can be a great option for some patients. As the name implies, this device bridges the gap between teeth. A bridge can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple consecutive teeth. Bridges last for several years but they are not as durable as implants or dentures.


Dentures and Partial Dentures

At Urgent Dental of Denver, we offer several types of dentures to our patients. We can provide removable or implant-retained partial or full dentures. Partial dentures are used when one or more of your natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Full dentures are recommended when all of your teeth are missing or damaged beyond repair.

Dentures are an excellent option for patients who are missing multiple teeth but have decided against dental implants. Dentures may also be suitable if a patient has widespread decay that cannot be resolved with other treatments, like fillings or crowns.

Dentures are less invasive than dental implants, which makes them a great treatment option for patients who do not want to undergo a complete restoration of the tooth and root, but they do not generally perform and feel like natural teeth the way implants do.

Dr. Boyd will work with you to develop a custom treatment plan. Our staff will review the benefits of each type of denture with you so that we can help you find the perfect solution. No matter which option you choose, our care team will provide ongoing maintenance to ensure that your new smile can shine bright for years to come. We love to help our patients in Washington Park, University Park and all of south Denver with their restorative dentistry needs.

Tooth-Colored Fillings and Broken Fillings

Despite your best efforts, tooth decay can sometimes take hold. This is especially common in some of the areas that are tough to reach, like the side of your molars.

Decayed teeth can be incredibly sensitive and painful. However, some patients do not experience any pain at all, even when decay is severe.

Whether you have any pain associated with your decay or not, it is vital to have these spaces, known as cavities, dealt with quickly. Urgent Dental of Denver can rapidly diagnose and treat your cavities. When cavities are detected early, Dr. Boyd can repair the damaged areas with fillings.

In addition to placing new fillings, Dr. Boyd can also repair or replace broken fillings. Even with proper dental hygiene, fillings can fail as they age. When that happens, we can resolve the problem in no time. We even offer emergency dental services in case a lost filling is causing you discomfort.
