Patient and team health and safety has always been taken very seriously at our dental practice. In addition to the health and safety measures we employed in our office previously, we are encouraging our employees to stay home if they are not feeling well or have been possibly exposed to someone who is ill. We are asking our patients to do the same and please call to reschedule your appointment if you or a family member have any flu- or cold-like symptoms (i.e. fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, etc.).
We will continue to use the CDC- and OSHA-mandated cleaning and disinfection protocols in our treatment areas, including utilizing a bactericidal, viricidal, fungicidal and tuberculocidal disinfectant that will kill the coronavirus.
We encourage our patients to wear masks while in our office building.
Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to seeing you soon!
You may have teeth that look misshapen because they have been worn down by years of biting and chewing. Physical injuries can also make teeth look out of place in your smile. Of course, in some cases, a problem with a tooth’s shape or size is something that occurred naturally. Even if this issue does not interfere with your oral health in a serious way, it is something that can cause embarrassment. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we can help you take care of this issue so that it no longer makes you self-conscious. Cosmetic services are capable of changing the shape, size, and color of teeth through conservative services that take less time, and make fewer physical changes, than you anticipate. (more…)
Your ability to bite down forcefully help you chew through nutrient-rich foods that are tougher. It is also an indication of good oral health. If something stops you from comfortably biting and chewing, you should meet with your dentist to learn what is causing the trouble. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we can help you take care of a problem that interferes with your dental function. A problem with tooth pain can call for restorative work to address an injury or cavity. However, if your problem is with your jaw movement, it may take another approach. We can look into TMJ treatment, which reduces pressure on your joints and muscles by correcting imbalances in your joints and movements. (more…)
When it comes to preventing cavities, you obviously have a role to play. Hopefully, you are taking advantage of the services you receive at routine dental exams and cleanings so that your dentist can also do their part to care for your teeth. Our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office is ready to help people in and around our community protect their enamel from the effects of decay. Our general services provide regular protection so that you are less likely to experience issues because of plaque and tartar buildup. Of course, we are also prepared to help you when you need work done to address a cavity that has formed since your last dental visit. (more…)
When you develop a habit of clenching or grinding your teeth, you can start to slowly wear down your enamel, leading to cosmetic and oral health problems. At any time of day, you can clench your jaw with enough force to create real problems for your oral health. With that said, nightly issues with this tendency, often referred to as bruxism, can be a big concern. After all, you cannot simply stop yourself by relaxing your jaw when you are asleep and unaware of what your body is doing. If this issue has lead to chronic jaw pain and stiffness, or if you have visible dental damage that concerns you, know that your Sheridan, WY dentist can help by working to address these problems.

If you try to make your smile whiter on your own, you can see some improvements, just not the changes you were hoping to show off. Fighting discoloration calls for more than just a change in your diet. While it is beneficial to cut back on foods and drinks that leave particles that stain tooth enamel, you still have to worry about the stains that have already been acquired. Fighting these with a new toothpaste, or with a store bought whitening kit, can lead to limited changes. To fight the buildup of particles that has occurred over time, talk to your Sheridan, WY dentist about a professional teeth whitening treatment. You can schedule treatment at our practice to deal with discoloration, or you can actually take home a professional whitening kit that we prepare for you to deal with this problem at your convenience.

If you have problems with your appearance caused by gaps or overlaps between teeth, you can look into alternatives to treatment with metal braces. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we can help patients improve the way they look by offering different cosmetic procedures. One option for treatment is to straighten your smile with Invisalign aligners. Invisalign treatment provides the patient with a series of custom-made, clear appliances, with each appliance bringing their smile one stop closer to being fully straight. We can talk to you about the benefits of beginning this procedure, or we can discuss other treatment options that are available to you. (more…)
When patients at our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office talk to us about our cosmetic services, they can bring up several concerns about the way they look. It may surprise you that two people with different priorities for treatment can receive recommendations for the same procedure. This is possible because one procedure can actually take on several issues at one time! One service that can address several issues at once is a tooth bonding procedure, which can make a tooth look brighter, bigger, and generally more attractive through changes to its shape. These improvements can be made without the placement of a permanent restoration, which can make this treatment approach more convenient than you anticipate! (more…)
Someone who has an incomplete smile may have several questions about treatment options. Learning more about what your dentist can do to help you can make the benefits of seeking restorative treatment clear. This can be particularly true if you are interested in implant dentistry as a means of regaining your full smile. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we are ready to work with you on filling gaps left behind by lost teeth. When dental implants are involved in restorative care, we can provide permanent restorations that are stable enough to help you regain confidence in your bite. They also provide more stability for neighboring teeth, and they can even protect you against the loss of jawbone density! (more…)
It may be necessary for you to arrange several treatments to fully restore your oral health, something that can make the idea of dental work intimidating. If you have issues with multiple teeth, or if you have several problems with your dental well-being that need to be addressed, we can work with you to plan out all of the procedures that you require. At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we can help you arrange a full-mouth rehabilitation to take on these different concerns. We can help you understand what issues you currently face, and we can work with you to work out a treatment plan that addresses your needs and fits your schedule. (more…)

When your procedure is complete, you can walk away with confidence in your smile and dental well-being. (more…)
