Emergency Dental Services - Northeast Heights Albuquerque
Dental emergencies require immediate care. If you have painful, damaged, or avulsed (knocked-out) teeth, call our Albuquerque emergency dentist at 505-884-8000 as soon as possible for care. The sooner a problem is treated, the more comfortable your smile will be and the better chance for Dr. Kassam to protect your overall dental health. At Sandia Dental Care, we provide care for common and problematic emergency dental problems.
Treatment for Broken and Fractured Teeth
If you’ve chipped, broken, or fractured a tooth, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as you can. While these may seem like small problems where treatment can be delayed, some breaks in dental enamel can permit the passage of bacteria that causes tooth infections.
If your tooth has been damaged but is not infected, Dr. Kassam can provide cosmetic dental bonding or prepare your smile for a crown restoration in one appointment. In the event that an infection is present, we start on treatment right away by numbing the tooth and removing some components of damaged tissue before your visit to an endodontic specialist for more comprehensive care. Our goal is to get you out of pain and set you up for treatment success as soon as possible.
Replacing Knocked-Out or Damaged Teeth
Losing a tooth to sudden impact, spills, or injuries isn’t uncommon and can absolutely be treated effectively to ensure your smile is strong and beautiful. Our Albuquerque emergency dentist, Dr. Sarah Kassam, makes sure to discuss all options with patients for replacing a knocked-out tooth, such as bridges, partials, and implant-supported restorations.
Patients with severe dental infections, or abscesses, are treated immediately to remove the source of infection and go over options for restoring the damaged tooth. In the event that the tooth itself cannot be saved, our emergency services include extraction as well as replacement of natural teeth.
