Dental emergencies indeed come in all shapes and sizes. At Centre Family Dentistry, we always tell our patients that if they have a dental problem that concerns them, it involves us too.

When you're in pain or have another problem, our goal is to provide prompt treatment to relieve your pain and restore your oral health. Here are some common issues that our emergency dentist in Fort Collins addresses routinely:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Lost dental crowns or fillings
  • Toothaches and cavities
  • Bleeding gums
  • Infected or abscessed teeth
  • Food stuck between teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth

If you should encounter any of these problems, call Dr. Jordan Humbert for emergency dental treatment. Some of these are less urgent than others—such as a chipped tooth—but we want to address any sudden dental concern you have promptly.

At Centre Family Dentistry, we offer a wide array of emergency dental services designed to get you back to feeling better again:

  • Replace lost fillings or crowns
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Emergency dental filling
  • Emergency root canals
  • Emergency tooth extractions
  • Replace knocked-out teeth

Toothaches are not normal. Putting off treatment allows whatever damage there is to worsen and harm your oral health. Delaying treatment can turn what would have been a simple dental filling into a root canal or even tooth extraction.  

If you have any of the issues listed above or another you don’t see here, don’t hesitate to call our Fort Collins dental office at (970) 407-1001. We’ll make your dental emergency a priority and make sure you get the prompt treatment and relief you need.

Dr. Jordan Humbert is a general dentist in Fort Collins who handles all the foundational dental care you need. Dental exams and cleanings, tooth fillings, crowns and bridges, root canals, emergency dentistry, and more, are all services we offer to maintain your family’s healthy smiles.

We'll Work toward Your Dream Smile

Maintaining excellent oral health is a team effort with us working together and our general dentist in the lead. We start with preventive dentistry, including comprehensive dental exams and tooth cleanings at least twice a year. Gum disease is a widespread problem that affects nearly half of all US adults over age 40. Prevention goes a long way toward protecting your overall health and well-being by keeping gum disease and cavities under control.

Prevention is ideal and helps you avoid many dental problems. But we won’t judge you if you’ve fallen behind with your oral health care. We love working with patients who have decided to take the necessary steps to improve their oral health and enhance their smiles!

Tooth fillings, crowns and bridges, root canals, and more, are all services your Fort Collins dentist offers to restore health and beauty to your smile. Because of Dr. Humbert’s dedication to continued learning, he also offers cosmetic dentistry, dental implant placement, TMJ and teeth grinding treatment, and sleep apnea solutions.

All-on-Four Dental Implants

Living with missing teeth can be frustrating when you don't feel comfortable talking or smiling in front of other people, or if you encounter difficulties chewing and eating your food. 

If you are missing most or all of your teeth, or if you are currently wearing a denture that doesn't fit and causes discomfort, All-on-4 dental implants in Fort Collins may be an excellent option for you.

The All-on-4 procedure utilizes four carefully placed dental implants designed to snap into a denture that replaces an entire arch of missing teeth.

Dental implants not only provide a more secure and stable fit than traditional dentures, but they also protect the jawbone from the deterioration that occurs over time from wearing a traditional denture. It is this bone loss that can cause your denture to slip, or not fit as comfortably as when you got it.

If you are currently dealing with the frustrations of an ill-fitting denture, All-on-4 dental implants can provide a solution for a worry-free fit you can rely on. If you are considering dentures as a tooth replacement option, dental implants in Fort Collins can provide better longevity for your investment by protecting the health of your bone.

To learn more about the All-on-4 procedure, contact Centre Family Dentistry today at (970) 407-1001 to schedule a commitment-free consultation with Dr. Jordan Humbert.

Dental Implants

When you lose a tooth in any area of your mouth, your best bet is to replace it as soon as possible. Dr. Jordan Humbert recommends dental implants for our Fort Collins, CO patients who are looking for the most reliable, long-term tooth replacement solution available.

Effects of Tooth Loss on Your Oral Health

Several things happen when you lose a tooth:

  • First, the jaw bone that supported the lost tooth starts to shrink, affects the stability of surrounding teeth, and leads to additional tooth loss.
  • All your teeth rely on each other for support. After tooth loss, adjacent teeth can start to tilt or drift into the void, causing crowding and misalignment.
  • Your teeth and jaws support and fill out your cheeks and lips to maintain a youthful appearance. When you lose one or more teeth, these contours change, and the result is a hollow or sunken-in appearance that makes you look older than you are.

Dental Implants Prevent These Problems

Dental bridges and full and partial dentures are and continue to be excellent choices for tooth replacement. But dental implants at our Fort Collins dental office are the only option that prevents all of these problems from occurring after tooth loss.

A dental implant is a tiny titanium screw that Dr. Humbert surgically positions in your jaw. As it heals, it forms a permanent bond with bone and tissue around it. Dr. Jordan then attaches a crown, bridge, or denture to restore function and appearance, and the result is a replacement tooth that is as close as modern dentistry can bring you to a natural tooth. 

Call Us with Your Dental Implant Questions

Dr. Humbert has studied dental implantology extensively so he can bring this leading-edge tooth replacement to his Fort Collins, CO patients. Using state-of-the-art 3-D cone beam imaging, he can perform the entire implant placement procedure here at Centre Family Dentistry.

Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety is very common, and unfortunately, it often prevents patients like you from seeking the dental care you need to maintain excellent oral health.

For this reason, we’re pleased to offer sedation dentistry at our Fort Collins, CO dental office. Because you have unique needs, we offer three types of dental sedation—nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Nitrous Oxide for Your Comfort

Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a mild form of sedation that you inhale, and its effects are meant to last only for the duration of your procedure. Nitrous is perfect for patients with mild to moderate anxiety or those who want to relax comfortably during their appointment.

Oral Sedation for Deeper Relaxation

If you feel like you could benefit from more profound relaxation, we may recommend oral sedation. Dr. Humbert will prescribe a calming medication that you should take about an hour before your appointment. When you get to our office with the help of a friend or family member, you’ll already be in a relaxed state and ready for your appointment.

IV Sedation at Our Dental Office

Does deeply-rooted anxiety prevent you from following through with dental care? IV sedation at our Fort Collins dental office is delivered by a trained anesthesia team who will monitor you carefully. With IV sedation, you’ll remain in a dreamlike state during your procedure and have little to no memory of what happened.

Call to Schedule an Appointment

Dr. Humbert and our entire dental care team are trained to administer sedation to ensure your safety. If you'd like more details, visit our sedation dentistry page or call Centre Family Dentistry at (970) 407-1001 to learn more about our sedation dentistry options and to schedule an appointment.
