Repairing a Broken Tooth or Cracked Tooth in ABQ NM

cracked-and-broken-tooth-painA fractured or cracked tooth can be small, or it can go straight down through all three layers of your tooth — enamel, dentin and pulp. If it isn’t repaired quickly, a cracked or fractured tooth can become a serious dental problem — it’s even possible that the surrounding gums and even the root of the tooth can become infected and tooth loss can occur.

At LoPour & Associates, DDS, we provide same-day emergency dental care for dental emergencies. When you come in, we will assess the extent of damage with a thorough examination, including x-rays, and alleviate any discomfort you may have.

Treatment options could include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Dental fillings
  • Veneers
  • Tooth extraction
  • Dental implants

Dr. LoPour and his friendly, experienced staff will go over the various treatment options available so that you can be sure you are making the best decision for your smile. Dr. LoPour is also conscious sedation certified and will provide, gentle and through care for all patients.
