Emergency Dentistry

Accidents can happen at any moment, which is why our patients are taken care of 24/7 to help repair any dental mishaps your child may experience. We make it a point to be accessible and reachable, and we are always eager to help kids mend their smiles, relieve their pain, and give parents peace of mind. 

When it comes to emergency dentistry, time is of the essence to treat your child’s precious smile. If your child experiences a dental emergency, please do not hesitate to contact either our Highlands Ranch or Castle Pines dental office. 

What Is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation that requires immediate care to prevent damage to the tooth or relieve pain. Even if your child still has baby teeth, it’s important to see your emergency dentist in Highlands Ranch or Castle Pines for emergency treatment. Baby teeth are placeholders for permanent adult teeth, so it’s important that your child’s baby teeth remain healthy and intact. 

Please contact our dental office immediately if your child experiences any of the following:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Broken, chipped, or knocked-out tooth
  • Cheek or gum swelling 
  • Bumps or an abscess on the gums 
  • Tender or bleeding gums 
  • Lost or broken fillings or crowns 

Better Safe Than Sorry: Preparing for Dental Emergencies

We can’t always prevent emergencies from happening, but we can try our best to act with caution and speed if it does happen. If your child experiences a dental emergency, the first step is to contact Sierk Children’s Dentistry as soon as possible. 

If your child’s permanent tooth falls out from trauma, you should carefully place it back in its socket until you get to our office. If you cannot place the tooth in its socket, we recommend placing it in a sealed container of water or a save-a-tooth kit. Keeping the tooth moist is vital for preserving it and saving the tooth. Remember, the faster Dr. Jon and our team can assess the damage, the faster we can repair your child’s smile.
