Mountain View Dental
Emergency Dentist in
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, contact our emergency dentist in Alamogordo! Our dental professionals at Mountain View Dental have the education and skills to help relieve pain and restore your smile in an emergency. If an emergency has occurred in which more than just your teeth have been affected, please call 911.
Severe dental emergencies are issues that we fix as soon as we possibly can. If you are experiencing any of the following dental emergencies, we can help!
We consider a tooth knocked from its socket as a dental emergency needing immediate attention. If this happens to you or your child, we encourage you to try and locate the tooth, place a gauze compress on any bleeding, and call us immediately. Sometimes, we can restore the tooth in the original socket.
Experiencing trauma to a tooth can cause it to fall out entirely or break into pieces. For minor breaks, such as a chipped tooth, we can fix it with treatments such as dental bonding or dental crowns.
Significant breaks expose the inner portions of your tooth, leaving your tooth at greater risk for bacteria and cavities. Our main goal when this occurs is to maintain your natural tooth, so we do what we can to reattach the broken portion. If reattaching the piece is impossible, we offer restorative dentistry in Alamogordo, New Mexico, to give you a new whole tooth.
Periodontal or gum disease can occur when plaque builds up and causes an infection in the gums. This disease presents itself through constantly swollen and bleeding gums in a specific area. If you are starting to notice that one particular gum tissue location is continuously irritated, swollen, or bleeding, please call us.
In the early stages of this disease, we can remove the infection entirely, but it gets more complicated once it has progressed further into the gum tissue. Periodontal disease is taken very seriously at Mountain View Dental due to the number of teeth you can lose and the health problems it can create.
