How will you treat my dental emergency?

Dental Emergency | Albuquerque, NM | Essenmacher Family DentalAt Essenmacher Family Dental, we set aside time to treat dental emergencies. And we always do our best to see patients quickly.

During this crucial time, which can be scary, we want to relieve your pain and save your tooth or teeth.

However, if you’ve experienced a trauma, we want you to visit your local emergency room first. You or a friend can contact us from there.

Otherwise, we treat your dental emergency with diligence.

What our Northeast Heights emergency dentist decides to do during your emergency, however, will always depend on the nature of your emergency.

For example, some emergencies require x-rays. Others require trying to save a lost tooth.

Emergency Prevention

At Essenmacher Family Dental, most of the emergencies we encounter have to do with the sudden pain brought by dental infections.

The best way to avoid dental infections is to brush and floss daily. Additionally, it’s crucial to your long-term dental health to see our dentist regularly and schedule a professional dental cleaning at least every six months.

Our patients who practice these healthy habits have fewer dental emergencies, cavities, infections, and a decreased risk for periodontal disease.

Dear valued patients,

As many of you know, in response to the recommendations from the American Dental Association and public health orders in place in New Mexico, we have been seeing patients on an urgent/emergency basis only since March 17. As a practice, our first priority is to put the health and safety of our team and community first.  

Because the exact trajectory of this pandemic cannot be anticipated, we are unable to accurately predict when we’ll be able to resume seeing patients for regular dental care.  At this time, public health orders prohibiting elective dental care extend until May 15.  However, we will definitely make an announcement on our website and Facebook when normal hours are resumed. We will also be contacting patients whose appointments were canceled so that we can reschedule.  

In the meantime, if you have any questions about an upcoming appointment, or have a concern about your teeth that you’d like to discuss, please do not hesitate to call our office.  We are happy to assist you in any way we can.  

While we all watch and wait to see what the coming weeks hold for our nation, I pray for health and peace for all of you and those you love.  I know that together, we will get through this. Take care and God bless. Visit our Facebook page for a message from Dr. Essenmacher. 

Best Regards,

Dr. Essenmacher
