In a perfect world, dentists would have time to plan every treatment in advance, but dental emergencies usually have other ideas! If you have an urgent dental problem and need prompt treatment for a toothache, lost crown, or broken tooth, we offer emergency dentistry at our Albuquerque dental office.
Common Dental Emergencies We Treat
Dr. Corey Woods and his dental team offer prompt attention and the expert treatment needed to relieve your pain, resolve your immediate issue, and preserve your oral health. By establishing a dental home with us, you always have peace of mind knowing exactly who and where to turn if you need help with a tooth emergency.
As an experienced emergency dentist in Albuquerque, Dr. Woods commonly helps our patients with problems like:
- Broken or cracked teeth
- Lost dental crowns or fillings
- Toothaches, from mild to severe
- Swollen or bleeding gums
- An infected or abscessed tooth
- Jaw pain or swelling
- Dental trauma
If you experience one of these emergencies or another situation that’s not listed here, please call Blue Sky Dental right away. We leave time in our daily scheduled to make emergency dental treatment a priority, especially if you are in pain.
We offer comprehensive general dentistry, and Dr. Woods has the expertise and skill to treat just about any dental emergency you face. He replaces lost dental fillings and tooth crowns, restores cavities with emergency tooth fillings, repairs broken teeth, and performs root canals.
It's always best to preserve your teeth for as long as possible, but sometimes an emergency tooth extraction is our only option, and we will do all we can to make your procedure as comfortable and efficient as possible.
How to Avoid Many Dental Emergencies
Dental emergencies can be painful and are always disruptive to your daily routine. Nobody wants to experience the throbbing pain of a dental abscess, time missed from work, and unexpected dental costs that put a dent in your budget.
You can avoid most dental emergencies by staying up to date with routine dental examinations and hygiene appointments every six months. Seeing you at these intervals allows Dr. Woods to look for cavities and inspect dental restorations like fillings, crowns, and bridges to ensure they’re stable and in good condition.
If he does find an issue, he will treat it promptly to relieve your pain and protect your long-term oral health.
