When you think of a medical emergency, the dentist probably doesn’t come to mind. But problems with your teeth can be excruciating and debilitating. They need immediate attention. Albuquerque’s Legacy Dental Procedures helps with toothaches, performs emergency root canals and fixes cracked or missing teeth on short notice. If you have no insurance, our team offers financing options to help you cover your dental emergency.
Our expert dentists, Dr. Stewart Anderson and Dr. Derek Lines, are here to help you when you need us the most. We treat a variety of dental conditions, including:
Toothaches may seem harmless, but they may be signs of a serious problem. Prolonged aches and pain can lead to or exacerbate tooth decay. Call Legacy Dental as soon as you feel discomfort or pain.
Accidents happen, but you should never ignore a broken, chipped, or cracked tooth. Call to set up your appointment as soon as possible. Our emergency dentist is not on call 24/7, so we may not be able to see you immediately. See our office hours at the bottom of our page.
After your injury, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress on your face to relieve pain and swelling. Because Legacy Dental may be able to reattach any broken or chipped pieces during your appointment, simply bring the tooth to your appointment in a wet towel. Avoiding immediate dental care can result in emergency root canals later.
From Isotopes baseball to Lobos football, Albuquerque residents love sports. But sometimes, a good game results in a bad injury. Sports injuries and other accidents can cause your teeth to become loose or even to fall out (be avulsed). Legacy Dental can help with emergencies involving loose or knocked-out teeth.
When you lose a tooth, try to gently insert it back into place. If that’s not possible, rinse the tooth under a faucet. Do not scrub, as that may cause root damage. If teeth are preserved correctly, our emergency dentists may be able to reinsert them.
At Legacy Dental, we are dedicated to our patients’ health, safety, and well-being. Our team follows the latest CDC guidelines and takes every precaution to ensure your appointment is comfortable and safe.
From the tools we use to the air we breathe, everything is thoroughly cleaned following the latest CDC protocol. Our office has a dedicated sterilization area that features the latest innovative dental technology and systems. We also clean and disinfect all touchable surfaces throughout the day using Biosurf, the highest quality of dental disinfectant available.
Our office observes social distancing to keep our patients and their families safe. We perform a touchless temperature check prior to seating every patient. All patients fill out a COVID-19 screening questionnaire prior to their appointment. Patients check-in curbside and are invited in one at a time.
Our dental team takes every precaution to keep all of us safe. Every member of our team wears ADA- and CDC-approved personal protection equipment (PPE) during all appointments. This includes gloves, surgical masks, safety glasses, and face shields. All team members are required to have their temperatures checked at the door every day.
