Emergency Dentist in Littleton, CO
At the very least, dental emergencies are annoying and disruptive; at their worst, they can be excruciatingly painful and put your oral health in serious jeopardy. Whichever end of the spectrum your dental emergency is, Dr. Christina Linn and the team at Platte Canyon Dental are here to provide the relief and quality care you need.
Dental Emergencies We Treat in Littleton
Dr. Linn has over ten years of experience as a general dentist and has seen just about every type of dental emergency there is. Having served as a Naval Dental Officer, she is skilled in the entire scope of general dentistry, including trauma management.
This experience qualifies her to handle any dental emergency our Littleton patients face:
- Broken teeth
- Lost dental crowns
- Lost fillings
- Bleeding gums
- Food stuck between teeth
- Infected teeth
- Abscessed teeth
- Knocked-out teeth
If you experience any of these situations, call Platte Canyon Dental right away. Not all dental emergencies require immediate treatment, but call us and let us help you decide.
A friendly member of our team will listen to your concerns and determine if you need to come in right away, or if your situation can wait until our next available appointment. If it is after hours, call our main office, and Dr. Linn will return your call as quickly as possible.
Please note that a knocked-out tooth is the most urgent of all emergencies because we have a window of only about two hours if there is any hope of replacing it in its socket.
However, if your injury also includes trauma to your jaw or face, or you are experiencing excessive bleeding, please go to an emergency room or call 911.
