Drs Aurelia and Dina Khoury are happy to acquaint you with their Rochester Hills office before they see you in person, courtesy of the following answers to “Frequently Asked Questions.”
I don’t have tooth pain. Why should I visit a dentist?
Many conditions such as gum disease have little to no symptoms early on, when they’re easiest to treat. It’s important to get in a routine of visiting us for professional dental care, as we’re trained to spot even subtle problems. These problems can then be resolved by deep cleaning teeth or nonsurgical periodontal treatment before they cause painful complications that may require time-consuming, costly, and invasive restorative procedures.
I’m embarrassed by the look of my smile. What can I do?
We’re pleased to have many options to improve the appearance of your teeth and gums. Our team offers several teeth whitening system alternatives, including Zoom! in-office bleaching, custom take-home trays, and strips that actually work! If you have very deep or stubborn discoloration, chips, gaps, and other concerns, cosmetic veneers or teeth bonding may be recommended. Sensitive teeth are no match for today’s minimal-prep veneers, as well as products to help manage or prevent bleaching-related sensitivity.
When should children visit the dentist?
Call us to schedule a pediatric appointment if your child is at least a year old or has at least one tooth. It may seem strange to bring an infant with no teeth or a single tooth to the dentist; however, gums must be cleaned well to assure teeth develop in a healthy manner. Those baby teeth help to guide adult teeth into proper position. So, it’s important they aren’t lost to early childhood decay. We can show you techniques to easily and effectively clean little mouths.
Children’s dental care can be fun! Every child gets a toy after the visit. They look forward to visiting the dentist – no fear here. We’re also pleased to offer:
- Convenient scheduling – Early morning, evening hours, after-hours
- Comprehensive services – Range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic treatments; plus, relationships with the region’s top specialists for complex procedures
- Budget-friendly – Flexible payment with medical financing
