At Aurora Dental Care, our goal is to help you and your family maintain excellent oral health. As a family dentist, we pride ourselves on treating every member of the community, from young children to grandma and grandpa. If your family needs professional dental care, you have come to the right place!
Family Dentistry Vs. Pediatric Dentistry
When it comes to your child’s oral health, we understand you want the very best in professional care. As a result, you may be wondering about the difference between a family and pediatric dentist. It is a minor yet important distinction.
We are a family practice, meaning we are uniquely qualified to treat patients of all ages. As you can probably guess, a pediatric dentist is only focused on treating children. Our comprehensive approach to dentistry provides every family member with the care they need to maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. Our office is also warm and kid-friendly to ensure your child has a comfortable and even enjoyable experience!
Because our expertise extends to everyone, our practice can save you a significant amount of time. Many parents have busy lives that make regular scheduling appointments a tricky task. At our practice, you can schedule back-to-back appointments, allowing you and your child to receive the appropriate care within a single visit.
Prevention Is Key
Family dentistry is centered around preventive services. We offer a wide variety of treatments designed to prevent dental problems before they occur. The best way to achieve this goal is with routine checkups and professional cleanings.
Children have the most to gain from preventive dentistry. Our preventive treatments can establish a strong foundation of oral health that follows your child into adulthood. This helps your child avoid common dental problems and enjoy a lifetime of healthy, beautiful teeth. The same is true for you and your smile!
Restorative and Cosmetic Services
While our main focus is preventive dentistry, we also understand that some of our patients need additional services. For this reason, we specialize in restorative and cosmetic treatments that help improve your smile at any age. During your appointment, Dr. Methven will determine which treatments are appropriate to address your individual needs.
If we diagnose you with tooth decay, gum disease, or any other dental issue, restorative treatment may be necessary. The type of restorative treatment you receive depends on the location and severity of your issue. Regular checkups allow us to catch these problems early on before they progress into major complications.
Many of our older patients are also concerned with the aesthetics of their smile, especially if their teeth have collected stains. In this case, we also offer cosmetic services like whitening treatment to brighten your smile! Be sure to voice your concerns and desires during your appointment, so we can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
