With our area’s proud automotive heritage, many of us know the industry first- or second-hand. As much as the “assembly line” may remain the language of the auto business, John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC is proud to be the antidote to “assembly-line dental care.” As your choice for a dentist near Rochester, Drs Aurelia and Dina Khoury specialize in unhurried visits and getting to know generations of families as people – not as a name in a file or the next in a series of appointments. Before we get to know you, get to know us! Read on for a few answers to Frequently Asked Questions from patients.
When should I see a dentist?
The “standard” is every six months, and that’s for a comprehensive exam, plus professional cleaning. We also conduct oral cancer screenings. Every patient is different. If you have risk factors, such as certain genetic markers for aggressive gum disease, we’ll want to check on you more frequently. If it’s been a while since your last visit, nonsurgical periodontal treatment or a deep cleaning may be needed to restore gum health and will require follow-up appointments to track your healing.
What if I have a toothache or accident after-hours?
We are also your answer in the search for an “emergency dentist near me.” We offer a responsive, soothing resource should you have nagging pain or knock out your tooth at the rink or on the court. We’ll accommodate emergencies. We also offer early morning and evening appointments to accommodate busy schedules. As your family dental center, patients can “consolidate” appointments – so your, your child’s, and your parent’s visits may be scheduled back-t0-back in one day.
What should I expect from treatment?
There are many different types of procedures available at our office. We spend a lot of time with patients on home techniques and services like dental sealants to prevent problems that require restorative treatment. In the event that you need more extensive treatment, or want to boost the appearance of your smile, we have many options. Some of the following procedures are also offered in partnership with the area’s best oral surgeons and other dental specialist providers:
- Office and take-home teeth whitening system options
- Affordable teeth bonding
