Our clinic can help you with your dental needs. Below are some brief explanations of a few common procedures. Please call for any questions regarding treatment.
Exams & Cleanings
Regular exams and cleanings are necessary for your dental care providers to evaluate the condition of your entire mouth, which includes oral cancer screenings. Teeth cleanings can help prevent and maintain periodontal disease.
Sealants are a highly effective method of preventing tooth decay, and are easy to apply!
Filllings are one way to fix cavities to restore health, function and aesthetics to your smile.
Dentures are a removable appliance that fits over the gums in order to replace some or all of your natural teeth.
Root canals (endodontics) are often a straightforward treatment used to relieve dental pain and save teeth. When the pulp inside your tooth becomes compromised or infected, root canals can clean out this infection.
A dental crown can help restore the shape and function of a tooth when too much structure is gone to place a filling. They can also be placed on front teeth to help enhance your smile.
Occasionally teeth are not able to be treated for reasons such as too much decay or periodontal disease leading to tooth removal.
A bridge is one way to replace missing teeth. It attaches an artificial tooth to the adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Dental bridges are usually permanently attached.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. Regain the ability to eat and smile with confidence!
Sometimes difficulty sleeping can be caused by snoring, an obstructed airway or sleep apnea. Oral appliances can help you overcome your obstacles to get a restful night's sleep again.
Brightening your smile can be an easy and safe procedure in office or at home. Multiple options are available to discuss whitening your teeth. Schedule an appointment to see which is best for you.
We provide dental care for the entire family! We see children of all ages and can complete their exams, cleanings and basic treatment needs.
Misaligned teeth can make it more difficult to clean your teeth and cause teeth to wear prematurely. Enhance your smile with straight teeth and improve the health of your teeth and gums at the same time with clear aligners. Schedule a free Invisalign consultation today!
Feeling anxious about your dental appointment? Talk to us about using nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. It's a safe and effective way to relax during your procedure.
I have been a patient of Dr Sutherland since he first started practicing in Casper and I've always had a positive experience. From Sherry at the front desk to the folks who clean your teeth, everyone is very professional.
This week, for the first time, Dr Novotny and Gina, her dental assistant, worked on me and they were terrific.
I highly recommend this office.
