I just love Dr. Amie and her skilled team! They have taken care of my teeth for many years now, and I always get kind, prompt, and professional service in a relaxing spa-like atmosphere. Dr. Amie is awesome with my two small kiddos which always puts me at ease in her office. Her dedication to training and advancing technology has me confident that I am getting the best care available in Ames! Thanks, Dr. Amie ;)

I got my teeth cleaned at Aspen and I have to say it was one of the best places I have ever been to. The staff was very nice and did an excellent job on cleaning my teeth. Also when I had a problem with my insurance the management staff helped me figure out the problem and worked with me to make sure I got my coverage. Thanks guys!

I have been wanting to do this for a while now, I've been seen by the ladies in this office for the last 2 years and every time it's been great! Everyone is very knowledgeable and they are there to help in any way possible!I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a new provider in the area!

Always attentive. Terrific staff. I've been to many and imho Dr Sonya is by far the very best in Ames.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
