Let’s Talk About Dental Discomfort

While it is safe to assume that no one wants to experience dental pain, this is a problem that people do not always address promptly. Instead, they can wait in hopes that it will go away on its own. Unfortunately, this can lead to unintended consequences. In time, problems with tooth pain can lead to that tooth’s health worsening. If the trouble is more generally with jaw pain and stiffness, you can experience worsening issues with TMJ disorder that interfere with your daily life. Our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office is here to help you if you want to talk about dental discomfort, its impact on your life, and what the right treatment might involve. (more…)

Our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office is ready to meet with you and discuss the positive impact that implant dentistry can have for someone who is missing teeth. (more…)

Using A Dental Bridge To Replace A Lost Tooth

If you lose just one tooth, you can have problems with your appearance and dental health that lead to regular frustration.

At our Sheridan, WY dentist’s office, we can recommend that you receive a dental bridge to close the space left by your missing tooth. A custom restoration that we put in place can offer welcome bite support, and it can help you feel more comfortable with the way you look. (more…)

Keeping A Tooth Safe With A One-Visit Crown

Dental Bonding For A Chipped Tooth

If you have a chip in your tooth, even if it is small, can make it hard for you to maintain your confidence in your smile.

Fortunately, you can arrange conservative cosmetic dental work and leave this issue behind you. A dental bonding treatment is capable of hiding minor flaws while only making minimal changes to your tooth structure. The work offered by your Sheridan, WY dentist relies on a composite resin material that can be applied directly to your enamel to provide permanent improvements. (more…)
