How do I know if I have gum disease?
Gum disease has several classic symptoms, including gums that bleed, bad breath, gum recession and swollen gum tissue. If severe, gum disease will also cause tooth mobility and tooth loss. Early intervention is key. We offer laser treatment for a non-invasive alternative to gum surgery.
Do diet sodas cause tooth decay?
Yes, diet sodas and even milk and juices can cause tooth decay. Just because it is “sugar free” or “naturally sweetened” does not mean that bacteria cannot process the natural sugars into acidic biofilm once inside of your mouth.
How can I prevent sensitive teeth?
Sensitive teeth may be caused by gum recession, old fillings or even certain types of toothpaste. We can help you manage sensitivity by recommending specific products or treatments to block the pores of the teeth.
Which types of fillings do you offer?
Here at Aurora Dental, white composite fillings are available. We believe our patients deserve choices about which type of treatment is best for their families, so we provide as many options as necessary.
Am I too old for braces?
Orthodontic therapy can be provided to patients of all ages, beginning as early as age 7 and on up to mature grandparents! It’s never too late for a healthier, straighter smile.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that are anchored into the bone. They can support crowns, bridges, or full dentures.
Can I have all of my treatment completed at once?
Our sedation options make it convenient for our patients to have all of their dental treatment completed in one appointment. Ask us which one is right for you.
