Frequently Asked Dental Questions Aurora

As you consider going to a new dental office, many questions can come to mind. In particular, you can wonder whether they will be able to meet the needs of your family. Well, at Sommers Family Dental, we’re ready to address your questions and concerns! Below you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked dentistry questions that we get from patients, but feel free to contact our Aurora dental office if yours aren’t discussed here.

How often should I visit the dentist?

At Sommers Family Dental, we recommend at least two dental visits every year. Why? These appointments ensure that your oral health remains in check. When one of our dentists examine you, they can identify even the early signs of decay or infection, leading to faster, less invasive treatment. This visit also includes a dental cleaning, in which we remove calcified plaque from your teeth, preventing future problems from developing. Has it been a while since your last checkup and cleaning? Call us to schedule your appointment today!

What does a patient-focused approach to dentistry look like?

When we say that Sommers Family Dental has a patient-focused approach to dentistry, it means that we put our patients’ individual needs first in every way. In our appointments, we recommend services that will help patients achieve a healthy, confident smile—nothing more. After dental procedures, we are sure to call our patients to make sure that they are recovering well and to answer any questions because we truly care. In addition, our family-friendly dental office is designed to make any patient feel comfortable. To learn more about how we enhance the dental experience for our patients, call us!

Do you offer metal-free dental restorations?

Sommers Family Dental uses materials that are both durable and natural looking, which is why we offer all-porcelain dental crowns and tooth-colored fillings. These custom restorations blend in completely with your tooth enamel and allow you to restore your tooth’s appearance as well as its strength and function. If you have a damaged tooth or need to replace your metal fillings or crowns, call us for an appointment.

Do you treat children at your dental office?

Absolutely! Our dentists are able to help patients ranging in age from young children all the way up to the elderly and everyone in between. We would be happy to teach your child how to take care of their smile and instill the importance of healthy oral habits early. That way, your child can have all they need to maintain their oral health for a lifetime.

What sedation dentistry methods do you offer for anxious patients?

We want every patient to feel perfectly comfortable when they sit in the treatment chair, and we understand that some patients may need some extra help. We provide a couple of ways to induce a more relaxed feeling throughout your appointment: IV Sedation, oral conscious sedation and laughing gas. Let us know about your dental anxiety, and we’ll create a plan that can meet your needs and help you have a positive dental experience.

Do you perform dental implant placement?

Definitely! We handle every step of the dental implant process from beginning to end. After your consultation, we’ll surgically place your dental implant and later restore the implant with a custom dental crown or other restoration, depending on your needs. With Sommers Family Dental, you don’t have to worry about traveling to several dental offices to get the care you need and deserve.
