Toothache: A Dental Emergency

Free sedation special for new patients in February. For more information about this offer, please call (303) 323-8149.

If you have a toothache, you know that it can cause non-stop, intense pain!

Typically, the cause of a toothache is decay reaching the pulp or even the nerve of your tooth.

If you’re experiencing a toothache, please contact our office immediately. For most types of dental emergencies, we can get you in for an appointment the same day you call.

A toothache isn’t the same as experiencing discomfort when you sip hot or cold drinks, suck in cold air, or eat sweet, sour, or acidic foods. Instead, a toothache is an acute pain in the tooth or jaw. If your jaw swells and/or you have a fever, it usually means that an abscess has formed.

It’s important that you don’t ignore a toothache. Even if the pain stops suddenly, this doesn’t mean that the tooth has cured itself.

You may be experiencing a toothache because you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile. And if you’ve been avoiding making an appointment because of fear of the dentist, we have great news for you!

At our dental office, we provide gentle dental care, and our entire dental team is committed to offering you the most comfortable care possible.

Toward that end, we offer three types of sedation dentistry, including laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation. We also offer early morning dental appointments and evening dental appointments.

To schedule an emergency dental appointment, please contact us at (303) 323-8149, or e-mail

Please make note: Our dental office is located just off C-470 and Quebec, near Park Meadows Mall. We accept most dental insurance plans, and we also offer CareCredit financing.
