If you’re one of many folks suffering from dental neglect, but fear and anxiety are keeping you from seeking the care you need, we want you to know you’re not alone, and we’re here to help. Dr. Thompson is one of the most skilled and caring dentists in New Mexico, and some of his patients drive hundreds of miles past other dentists just to come see him. With our advanced technology and relaxing sedation options, you’ll understand why after just one visit.
If left untreated, missing teeth can have an array of consequences and seriously affect your quality of life. At the office of Peter L. Thompson, DDS, we offer an array of implant solutions that can help you eat, speak, and smile with confidence. No matter the level of care you need, we have a solution for you. From single-tooth implants, to implant-supported dentures, and even full mouth rehabilitation - we’ll help get you on the road to better dental health.
Modern advancements in the world of orthodontics have allowed for us to straighten smiles with less pain and visibility than traditional braces. The Invisalign system uses clear aligners to treat common concerns such as overcrowding, gapping, crossbite, underbite, overbite, and open bite. Over 4 million people have been able to increase their smile confidence and improve their oral health with Invisalign!
Whether going to the dentist just makes you a little anxious, or your fear is so crippling it’s caused years of dental neglect, we would love to help you get the care you need with relaxing sedation dentistry. We offer sedation for routine exams and cleanings, and to help us complete extensive dental work easily in a single appointment. Don’t wait for the problem to get worse, you’ll be glad you came to see us.
“When I found Doctor Thompson, you could honestly say I was at my end. All hope of ever having a normal pain-free life was entirely out of reach and there was no way anyone could possibly help me. I had been repeatedly let down by doctors, specialists, and dentists I had been to. I was convinced these people were only there to hurt you and take your money, not actually sit down with you and help you!”
“I first came to Dr. Thompson’s office in January of 2010. I had been having headaches due to muscular tension in my jaw. I suffer from a relatively rare genetic disorder called Amelogenesis imperfecta. This disorder affects the enamel formation in teeth, and I basically had no enamel on my teeth as a child and adult. Due to this I had to have all my teeth removed and replaced with dentures when I was only 25."
“What a feeling – being able to smile any time I want without shielding my two front teeth with my hand anymore! I must admit, I didn’t know much about veneers until a friend of mine mentioned them to me. He piqued my curiosity, but it was only after I spoke to Dr. Thompson and his staff that I decided to go ahead with the procedure."
“My poor dental health was affecting my self-esteem. I feel so good about Dr. Thompson because of the personable way that you are treated. Peter calls to see if you are okay. That was a first since being to many dentists. You don’t have to go through the stress and dread of being in the chair so long with the sedation. They know what they are doing and everyone is wonderful. I would never consider going anywhere else.”
