FAQs

What Causes Cavities?

Cavities are caused when the bacteria in your mouth attaches itself to the enamel that covers your teeth and turns into plaque. The plaque on your teeth releases acid that erodes your enamel and causes cavities.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss. Also known as gingivitis, gum disease will attack your gums, bones, and your whole body. When the bones around your teeth dissolve, your teeth will eventually fall out. Gum disease is an infection caused by plaque, and some early warning signs of gingivitis are tender, puffy, red, or bleeding gums. The only way to combat gum disease is through regular, professional cleanings at routine dental visits.

How Often Should I Get a Dental Checkup?

Most people should go to their dentist for a dental checkup twice a year. However, depending on your oral health, you may need to visit the dentist more regularly. Having regular checkups can help prevent disease, decay, and tooth loss.

How Expensive is General Dentistry?

Here at Whole Family Dentistry we understand that dental treatment can be a big financial commitment for our patients. For your convenience we accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and CareCredit. We also work with a local bank to help finance your dental financial needs. We deliver high quality dental care to all of our patients at the most reasonable cost. Payment for treatment is due at the time of service unless prior arrangements have been made. As a courtesy, if you have dental insurance, we will file your dental claim for you as long as you provide our staff with all of the correct insurance information. Your dental insurance company in turn will pay you directly based on your insurance plan benefits. Please feel free to call Kaydene or Cheryl with any questions at 303-442-8625.

Why is mercury used in fillings?

Mercury is an inexpensive option to fill teeth. Mercury has unique binding properties that allow it to be an effective way to fill teeth. However, mercury is extremely toxic. Though it is usually safe, there is a possibility that it can leak out of the filling and into the body, potentially causing adverse health reactions. This is why we do NOT use mercury fillings and have found safer and better alternatives.

What are safer alternatives to mercury fillings?

At Whole Family Dentistry, we provide the safest options for you and your family. We do not want to run the risk of any of our patients’ health for the quick savings of amalgam - or mercury - fillings.

Instead, we use Natural Composite Dental Fillings. Composite Fillings are made from a resin with ground glass fillers that is the same color as your tooth - unlike mercury fillings. In addition to being safer, Composite Fillings also look a lot better than amalgam fillings. A Composite Filling is especially great for chips on those front, visible teeth; the filling blends right in, unlike mercury-based fillings.
