Leaders in Preventative Dentistry The Power of Our High-Quality Care
ExaminationsOur dentist conducts in-depth examinations using tools such as digital x-rays and cone beam imaging at our Aurora practice. Our technology allows us to see beyond what meets the eye and assess the health of your bone, soft tissue, and nerves, as well.
ScreeningsWe believe that your oral health directly affects your overall health. As part of your routine oral health exam, our dentist conducts an oral screening exam. He will search for abnormalities such as lumps or irregular tissue changes in your neck, head, face, or oral cavity.
CleaningsDental cleanings are a simple but effective way to prevent excessive plaque or risk of infection. By staying on top of routine dental cleanings, we can detect any signs of unhealthy gums or tooth decay early on, allowing us to treat it before it progresses.

Our Most Popular Procedures
Dental implants are considered the most advanced option when replacing missing teeth and filling in gaps in your smile. Implants fuse directly to the jaw bone, acting as artificial tooth roots that never slip out of place. Dental crowns or dentures are attached to the implant and serve as a reliable tooth replacement. In addition to serving as a solid base, dental implants are the only procedure that can prevent jaw atrophy and help you maintain a youthful facial appearance.
Sleep apnea can negatively decrease your quality of life and make getting through the day difficult. We can create a custom-fit oral appliance to help maintain an open airway to promote better breathing and dramatically improve your symptoms. Patients enjoy a better night's sleep, have energy throughout the day, and decrease their risk of developing certain health conditions. We've helped a number of patients throughout Aurora overcome their sleep apnea issues.
For patients who want to straighten their teeth but aren't willing to get traditional metal braces, Invisalign® is by far the most popular option in cosmetic dentistry. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to gently and gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. The aligners can be easily popped off, allowing you to maintain your oral health by brushing and flossing normally. Because they are transparent, patients can confidently straighten their teeth without worrying about how they look.
A root canal procedure can save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. A cavity that has reached the pulp of a tooth can cause excruciating pain. A root canal is a simple procedure that removes the infection and flushes out the tooth roots. This eliminates painful symptoms and saves the natural tooth from extraction. Tooth extraction is far costlier and complex due to needing a dental implant and restoration to replace the missing tooth.
A dental crown protects the strength and functionality of a tooth that is badly damaged. Acting as a cap over your tooth, a crown serves as a protective barrier. Our advanced equipment allows us to take accurate impressions of your teeth for a seamless fit. Traditionally, dental crowns involve two visits with waiting time in between.

"One of the best experiences having my teeth cleaned."
The staff is friendly and helpful. Welcoming. Dr Wolbaum takes the time to listen to you and he always asks how you are doing. He doesn’t tell you something is wrong when there’s not, cavities for example. Honest. It is clean and well maintained. I have sent family and friends here.View on Google
I have been a patient at Pioneer Hills Dental for 4+ years and Dr. Wolbaum has been excellent. Their hygienist Hannah left, and knowing I had to adjust to her replacement (Kelly) made me nervous. I am so happy to write about the great care and experience I had with Kelly. One of the best experiences having my teeth cleaned.View on Google
