Aspen Dental
My regular small town dentist of over 15 years is not open on Fridays. So to be completely honest, the only reason I called Aspen the first time, was out of desperation. My tooth was loose and I was in excruciating pain. It was on a Friday and there was no way I could wait 3 days to get something done. So I turned to the internet to find ANYONE that could help me. When I called this office and explained my situation they got me in immediately. So this last experience was the same. Only Aspen was the only dentist I called. Dr Graham was wonderful. . When I received the shots, I felt NOTHING..It was unbelievable. A special shout out to Kelsey, and Christen. The receptionist was very warming. The Billing specialist was very thorough. ( I regret not remembering their names) They didn't do anything that wasn't necessary. Everyone gave me excellent care. I've only had 3 visits, but in just one this office gained my loyalty. I highly recommend them to anyone! KUDOS ASPEN!!!!!!
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
