Common Dental Problems

Serving Aurora, Denver & Nearby Areas of Colorado



At Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center, we educate our patients on how to be proactive about their dental health. This means committing to your homecare, visiting us every six months for cleanings and checkups, and giving us a call as soon as you experience signs of a problem.

There are two ways you can use your Aurora dentist to ensure a healthy mouth: 1) Visit us every six months for a cleaning and checkup, and 2) Schedule an appointment as soon as you notice pain, soreness, or other symptoms.

Here are a few of the most common dental problems we encounter with our patients along with potential solutions:

Missing Teeth

Tooth loss not only creates noticeable spaces in your smile, it can lead to a myriad of dental health problems, including bone loss. At our dental practice, you can choose from a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges.

Gum disease

Gingivitis, or gum disease in its early stage, can cause inflammation of the gums, bleeding, and other issues. Periodontitis, a serious stage of gum disease, can cause enamel decay, tooth loss, and gum recession. Our Colorado dentists are highly skilled in the area of periodontics and can treat all stages of gum disease to improve dental health and slow or stop progression of the condition.


Bacteria accumulation can lead to deep tooth damage. To stop a cavity from growing, a tooth-colored filling, onlay/inlay, or dental crown may be recommended.

Metal Fillings

With today’s advanced dental materials, there is no need to walk around with unattractive metal fillings that can crack or fracture teeth. At our Colorado dental practice, we would be happy to replace your outdated fillings with safe tooth-colored fillings that look just like natural enamel.

Tooth Infections

A tooth infection or tooth abscess can pose a real threat to natural teeth. To prevent tooth extraction due to infection, our dentists can perform a root canal procedure.

Dental Anxiety

If you have put off important visits to the dentist because of dental fear, our sedation dentistry option allows you to have any dental work performed.

Do not let another day go by without addressing your oral health needs. The experienced Colorado family dentists at Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center can help you find safe and affordable repair solutions that will protect and preserve your smile.
