Signs and Symptoms of Gingivitis

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums which, if left untreated, can lead to periodontitis, or gum disease. Gingivitis is characterized by several easily-recognizable symptoms and is caused by a buildup of plaque on the teeth and gum line. Today, we want to discuss these signs and symptoms, as well as give you a few ways to manage your oral hygiene at home to avoid costly dentist trips.

At Sweetwater Dental in Rock Springs, WY, we believe that our patients should be equipped with as much knowledge as possible when it comes to the health of their teeth and gums. However, there’s no substitute for regular dental trips to maintain those pearly whites and ensure the health of your teeth long term. If you’re in need of a cleaning, don’t hesitate to call our office today.

What is Gingivitis?

As we mentioned before, gingivitis is a condition marked by inflammation of the gums. It’s caused by the build of plaque which is the soft, sticky film left behind by bacteria in the mouth. Usually, plaque is removed by brushing and flossing, but if you don’t brush and floss properly (or often enough), it will begin to produce toxins and harden into something called tartar, creating even more inflammation and infection.

7 Symptoms of Gingivitis

  •      Red or swollen gums
  •      Tender or painful gums
  •      Gums that bleed when brushing or flossing
  •      Gums that have pulled away or receded from teeth
  •      Elongated teeth
  •      Bad taste in the mouth even after brushing
  •      Chronic bad breath

How to Prevent Gingivitis

In order to prevent gingivitis, good oral hygiene must be practiced. Daily brushing and flossing is necessary to remove plaque and bacteria.  Mouthwash can be particularly helpful when used in conjunction with regular brushing and flossing, but alone has minimal effects and is not recommended. More importantly, however, scheduling regular visits with Dr. Taylor will also ensure that hard-to-remove plaque and tartar are taken care of before they cause permanent damage.

Finally, eating a nutrient-rich diet will also supply jaw bones, teeth, and gums with the nutrition they need to stay healthy and strong. This includes avoiding harmful foods and substances like too much sugar, tobacco, and acidic sodas. We’ve provided a few foods to include in your diet below:

  • Cheese
  • Leafy Greens
  • Apples
  • Carrots
  • Beans

Medieval Dentistry

The Medieval era isn’t known for its hygienic prudence. It was a time when plague and disease ran rampant, and waste management was mostly about finding the closest river in which to throw your excess chicken bones and animal dung. And, hey, maybe medieval people thought it was ok to drink from those rivers, too. But despite all the negative modern portrayals of medieval hygiene, these people did in fact have some taste and decency.

Certain literature from that time period (1200-1400) suggests that medieval people cared about things like bathing, white teeth and good breath. At Sweetwater Dental, we’re grateful that even 800 years ago our ancestors cared about their dental health. But it’s a shame we weren’t around back then to offer some of our cosmetic or restorative services.

How Did Medieval People Practice Dental Hygiene

People in the medieval era had a variety of ways to care for their teeth, both in terms of hygiene and also interventions for tooth pain and gum disease. As far as pain remedies, Medieval people utilized different types of powders and pastes to apply directly to damaged teeth. Bloodletting was sometimes used in congruence with these tooth powders to lessen swelling and to promote healing in the gums. Some of these powders and pastes also aimed at keeping teeth clean and breath fresh.

Unfortunately, given the technology of the times, there wouldn’t have been much you could do for badly damaged teeth besides removing them altogether. Nor would there have been much in terms of sedatives to make tooth removal less painful (ouch).

Advantages of Medieval Dentistry

Believe it or not, in some ways Medieval people had it easier than we do today in terms of taking care of their teeth. Unlike modern depictions of Medieval smiles—showing black and rotten teeth—these people actually had an easier time maintaining healthy teeth than we do today. How could that be? Because Medieval diets altogether lacked sugar. It was too expensive of a commodity for most people to afford, so there was a much lower occurrence of cavities and a much slower rate of tooth decay than you see in modern people.

Less Common Ways to Clean Teeth

Brushing and flossing have long been two of the most effective ways to clean teeth, avoid cavities, and prevent oral health issues like gum disease. In addition to regular checkups and professional cleanings, as well as avoiding harmful foods, brushing and flossing are absolutely essential to a healthy mouth. While this is true, there are plenty of additional ways to clean teeth and further protect the rest of your mouth from other issues.

At Sweetwater Dental in Rock Springs, WY, we strive to provide our patients with the best treatment and helpful information so they can achieve the healthy smile they need. We know the importance of a healthy mouth, so let us fill you in on the many less common, yet effective ways to clean teeth.

3 Surprising Ways to Clean Teeth

It may come as a surprise, but brushing and flossing aren’t the only ways to keep your teeth clean and free of cavities. Of course, you should always brush and floss regardless of how effective these tips are. The practices to follow are simply additional ways to improve oral health. Take a look at the list below:

  • Eat Teeth-Cleaning Foods: Believe it or not, some foods like apples and carrots can actually give your teeth a good cleaning while eating them. Try adding an apple, carrot, or celery to the end of your meal.
  • Keep Cinnamon Gum at Hand: Cinnamon gum contains cinnamic aldehyde, which is a plant oil that inhibits bacteria growth, reducing harmful bacteria in the mouth. Keep some cinnamon gum in your pocket for chewing after meals—and make sure it’s sugar free!
  • Drink Plenty of Water: Drinking water is a great way to wash bacteria away from teeth. Also, a dry mouth can harm teeth, as we need saliva to protect tooth enamel. Staying hydrated will keep your mouth from drying out.

Additional Ways to Clean Teeth and Promote Oral Health

Aside from following the tips above, there’s a variety of actions you can take to improve your efforts in maintaining great oral health. Though brushing and flossing are still necessary, these helpful tips could be beneficial factors in preventing oral health issues. Consider trying the tips to follow:

  • Rinse with Coconut Oil: With antimicrobial properties, unrefined coconut oil can naturally kill the bacteria in your mouth. Just be sure not to swallow the oil when rinsing.
  • Stay Out in the Sun: The sun’s vitamin D is essential to bone and skin health, yet it’s also beneficial for the teeth! Try catching some early morning sun for best results. You can also attain vitamin D by eating eggs and other foods.
  • Look for Xylitol: An alternative to sugar, xylitol not only replaces harmful sugar in foods and drinks, it also can reduce cavity-causing bacteria from your mouth.

Flossing Options and On-the-Go Cleaning

We all know the importance of flossing, but many patients often avoid the tedious task. Fortunately, you have options. Quality dental floss will always be your best bet, so don’t reach for the cheapest string on the shelf. These types of cheap floss just won’t do their job efficiently. As far as other options go, you can try some of the products below:

  • Proxabrushes: Shaped like a Christmas tree, proxabrushes are great for patients with braces or for simply bringing on the go. Keep some on you for after-meal cleaning.
  • GUM Soft Picks: Another great product for on-the-go use, GUM soft picks feature soft rubber bristles and a comfortable grip for more convenient flossing.

While these alternatives are great for cleaning after meals, or when you forgot your floss, you should always be sure to use dental floss, as it’s the most effective way to remove plaque between your teeth.

Keep Teeth Protected with Sweetwater Dental

As you can see, you can do much more to clean your teeth than simply brushing and flossing. While brushing and flossing are always necessary, you should consider trying the tips above to promote better oral health. Additionally, all Rock Springs patients should visit Sweetwater Dental twice a year for regular checkups and teeth cleanings.

Contact us today to schedule an appointment so Dr. Taylor can assess your mouth and ensure there aren’t any underlying problems. You can also give us a call at 307.382.2707.

Clean Teeth: Benefits for You and Your Health

Brushing your teeth has long been one of the key factors in maintaining oral health. From eliminating bad breath to fighting cavities, your toothbrush works hard to keep teeth healthy and clean—so long as you’re brushing often! While clean teeth are great for your oral health, you may be surprised to learn clean teeth also present benefits to your overall health. With this, you now have yet another reason to keep those teeth clean, but what exactly are these health benefits associated with clean teeth? Let the experts at Sweetwater Dental fill you in!

Maintaining Clean Teeth: 5 Benefits for Your Health

We can all admit we don’t stay up on our oral hygiene from time to time. Whether you’re on vacation or you’ve been busy, we’ve all skipped out on brushing our teeth at one point or another. Whichever the case, you should never skip brushing and flossing, as they present benefits to not just your mouth, but your body too. Check out the list below to see how else your body benefits when you keep teeth clean.

  • According to studies, gum disease increases your chance of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Maintain regular cognitive function and be sure to brush and floss twice a day!
  • The same bacteria that causes gum disease can make its way into your lungs, potentially causing respiratory infections like pneumonia.
  • Researchers have also found high levels of the gum disease bacteria, fusobacterium nucleatum, in tumors. Gum disease is starting to look much more problematic!
  • Since pregnant women are prone to gingivitis, they are more susceptible to gum disease, which can result in premature birth and low birth weight.
  • If the bacteria that’s constantly residing in your mouth makes its way into your bloodstream, it could increase your risk of heart attacks and strokes.

As you can see, you can prevent a variety of health defects and diseases by taking proper care of your teeth and gums. Clearly, gum disease poses numerous threats to your body, so brushing and flossing regularly is key. These aren’t the only benefits of maintaining clean teeth, either.

More Advantages of a Healthy Mouth

While clean teeth will help lower your risk of the many health issues listed above, that’s not all proper oral care will do for you. By keeping your oral hygiene up to par, you’ll require less dental treatments, which saves you time and money—and we all love saving money. So, avoid costly treatment in the future, and start caring for your teeth and gums today. Additionally, your breath will stay fresh and your teeth will look great! Talk about a win-win situation.

Of course, brushing and flossing your teeth will help prevent decay, gum disease, and a variety of other health issues, but we always recommend patients visit their dentist at least twice a year for regular checkups and professional cleanings. And what better place to do it than at Sweetwater Dental?

Save Money and Your Health with Sweetwater Dental

Avoiding Tooth Decay: Flossing is a Must

At any given dental appointment, you’ve probably been asked how often you floss. For many patients, a simple answer to that question is not enough. There’s a reason dentists are so persistent about flossing, however. When it comes to protecting your teeth and avoiding decay, flossing regularly is absolutely essential. Flossing reaches areas of your teeth that a toothbrush simply can’t. Fortunately, Sweetwater Dental can fill you in on the importance of flossing and even suggest some alternatives.

At Sweetwater Dental, the oral health of our patients is always our first concern. The professionals here know how essential flossing is, and we strive to provide helpful information and resources to our patients so they can maintain healthy teeth and a proper oral hygiene routine. The first step in a thorough routine is brushing and flossing, so take a moment to learn why you need to floss regularly to avoid problematic teeth.

A Toothbrush Alone Can’t Prevent Decay

It’s true: patients need to brush their teeth at least twice a day to remove plaque and bacteria. However, brushing alone won’t be enough to combat harmful sugars and acids that wear down tooth enamel. Though brushing is effective in removing plaque, which is a sticky film of bacteria that adheres to your teeth, brushing can only reach the surfaces of teeth. Flossing, on the other hand, works to remove plaque and food debris from the gaps between your teeth, which is also beneficial to the health of your gums.

When you forget to floss, sugars and acids from food debris remain on your teeth longer, forming plaque and leaving them susceptible to cavities. This is what makes flossing so important. It’s even beneficial to floss before brushing your teeth, as the fluoride in toothpaste is able to reach more areas of your teeth. If flossing is a struggle, whether you have braces or find it too difficult, you can try a few alternatives.

Alternative Ways to Floss

We can’t stress the importance of flossing enough, but for some patients, the task is either too difficult to bother with or braces make it a pain. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways you can avoid the troubles of flossing, while still protecting those small gaps in between your teeth. Take a look below:

  • Floss Threaders: For patients with braces or other orthodontic appliances, flossing can be quite difficult. Floss threaders work like a needle, which you can feed floss through and use to thread it underneath wires and in between brackets. Ask your orthodontist for some at your next appointment.
  • Proxabrushes: Great for on the go or patients with braces, proxabrushes are shaped like Christmas trees and allow you to reach underneath wires and between brackets.
  • Super Floss: Designed for patients with braces, bridges, and gaps between their teeth, super floss uses a stiffened end with both spongy and regular dental floss for optimal cleaning.
  • Soft Picks: Similar to proxabrushes and also great for bringing on the go, soft picks feature rubber-bristled tip for cleaning in between teeth, crowns, braces, and more.

Don’t Forget Checkups at Sweetwater Dental!

The importance of flossing is clear. In conjunction with brushing, flossing twice a day will help prevent cavities from forming, and it’ll also promote better oral health. Of course, we also recommend every patient visits Sweetwater Dental in Rock Springs, WY twice a year for checkups and dental cleanings. In our office, Dr. Ryan Taylor can assess your mouth and ensure it’s free of decay and other issues.

Wisdom Teeth: Should You Have Yours Removed?

Have you ever wondered why we have wisdom teeth or why they need to be removed? As patients progress through their teenage years, dentists often suggest wisdom teeth removal, yet sometimes it’s not always necessary. While having your wisdom teeth removed isn’t always a must, it can prevent problems down the road. Still, the question remains: should you have your wisdom teeth removed? Let’s find out!

Whether they’re already emerging or still under our gums, we all have wisdom teeth. Often times, wisdom teeth come in and cause overcrowding. In less common cases, patients can keep their wisdom when there’s enough room for them to come in, though this presents an extra set of teeth that are hard to clean. Whichever the case, wisdom teeth should most often be removed, but let’s take a look at why we have wisdom teeth in the first place.

Why We Have Wisdom Teeth

Like we said, we all have wisdom teeth. This raises the question, “If we all have wisdom teeth, why are dentists so adamant about having them removed?” Anthropologists suggest that wisdom teeth are a result of evolution, as our ancestors most likely needed an extra set of molars to grind and chew their rough food. Now, humans have a third set of molars that are quite useless. Not only are wisdom teeth useless, they can also be troublesome, which often requires having them removed.

Potential Problems Resulting from Wisdom Teeth

For some patients, their wisdom teeth can cause quite a bit of pain as they emerge through the gums and crowd the surrounding teeth. In other cases, wisdom teeth don’t have the room to come in and can become impacted. Simply put, there’s a variety of reasons wisdom teeth need to be removed. Take a look:

  • Affect nearby teeth: Wisdom teeth can put force on surrounding teeth, causing pain and even problems biting.
  • Swollen gums: When surrounding tissue becomes inflamed, it can become more difficult to keep those areas clean.
  • Alter tooth alignment: When impacted, wisdom teeth can reverse the work of braces and other orthodontic appliances.
  • Cause Cavities: Cavities can often form from swollen gums. Also, erupted wisdom teeth are far back in the mouth, which makes them difficult to keep clean and free of cavities.

When are Wisdom Teeth Normally Removed?

Of course, if patients begin to suffer from the effects of wisdom teeth listed above, they’ll most likely need their wisdom teeth removed. However, regardless of the problems wisdom teeth present, most dentists recommend having them removed. This is most often done in a patient’s’ late teenage years. Quite frankly, it’s often necessary for most patients to have their wisdom teeth removed to prevent potential issues in the future.

If you’re concerned about your wisdom teeth, contact Sweetwater Dental in Rock Springs to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ryan Taylor. He’ll determine whether they need to be removed and refer you to an oral surgeon. Call us today at 307.382.2707.

Preventing Tooth Decay

There’s a variety of factors that contribute to tooth decay. Fortunately, many of these factors, if not all, can be avoided. From the foods you eat to a poor oral hygiene routine, the causes of tooth decay are everywhere we look. Preventing tooth decay is essential, as it can have damaging effects on your teeth, and could ultimately lead to tooth extraction.

Dr. Taylor and his helpful staff here at Sweetwater Dental in Rock Springs strive to help patients maintain perfect teeth. With the correct information and resources, it can be easy to avoid tooth decay. Do what’s best for your teeth and oral health and allow us to fill you in on preventing tooth decay.

Causes of Decay

Like we said, there are many factors that contribute to tooth decay. As your first line of defense, tooth enamel works to protect your teeth from harmful bacteria and plaque, while the saliva in your mouth protects that enamel. Some factors in the list below wear down enamel and harm your teeth. Take a look:

  • Lack of brushing and flossing
  • Foods high in sugar and carbohydrates
  • Dry mouth
  • Various forms of tobacco

The sugars and carbs in many of the foods you eat, combining with the bacteria in your mouth to form harmful acids, which wear down tooth enamel. This makes brushing and flossing daily a must, in addition to avoiding sugary foods and drinks.


Luckily, there are many ways you can fight tooth decay. We mentioned avoiding sugary foods and drinks, as well as brushing and flossing daily. Additionally, patients should use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride strengthens teeth and protects your tooth enamel. To further prevent tooth decay, you can use antibacterial mouthwashes and, of course, visit Dr. Ryan Taylor for checkups and teeth cleanings.

Let Sweetwater Dental Help

Preventing tooth decay doesn’t have to be tough. With a thorough oral hygiene routine, including brushing and flossing twice a day, you can fend off the many factors that promote decay. It’s also important to eat high-sugar and acidic foods in moderation, as these are always harmful to your teeth.

Tooth decay can lead to more serious problems, such as tooth extraction. Avoid problematic teeth and contact Sweetwater Dental today to schedule an appointment. We offer a variety of services to keep your teeth clean and shining.

Attaining a Perfect Smile

Everyone would love to have great teeth, but visits to the dentist can often cause patients to be reluctant in attaining a perfect smile. Whether they’re fearful of the pain and discomfort involved or just want to avoid lengthy treatments, there’s always a reason to skip going to the dentist. However, regular visits to the dentists are essential in maintaining clean teeth and perfecting your smile. At Sweetwater Dental, we strive to give our patients the smile they always dreamed of and make them feel comfortable throughout the process.

Attaining a perfect smile doesn’t have to be a painful or lengthy procedure, and the benefits will keep you showing off your smile for years to come. Whether you need a professional cleaning, root canal, or even implants, Dr. Taylor at Sweetwater Dental is here to help. There’s a variety of ways to achieve a mouthful of shining white teeth, and we’d love to guide you through the process.

A Thorough Routine

The first step in attaining a perfect smile is maintaining a thorough dental hygiene routine at home. Keeping every area of your mouth free of plaque, food debris, and harmful substances will prevent cavities from forming and protect your gums from disease. By brushing and flossing twice a day, you can avoid unwanted bacteria from harming your tooth enamel, which will make trips to the dentist much easier in the long run.

While a thorough routine will help prevent cavities and tooth decay, you should also visit Dr. Taylor twice a year for regular checkups and professional cleanings. For patients who are already suffering from dental problems, such as tooth decay, cracked teeth, or even missing teeth, Sweetwater Dental can help!

Cosmetic and Restorative Services

Maintaining a perfect smile can’t always be done on your own. From tooth discoloration to missing teeth, we provide a list of services to keep your smile shining and full. Take a look at some of our services below:

  • Teeth Whitening: One of our more popular treatments, our teeth whitening services can be done in our office or in the comfort of your own home. Teeth whitening can solve nearly any discoloration problem, and our in-office treatment can leave you with whiter teeth in just one session.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Also great for discolored teeth, porcelain veneers can repair cracked, chipped, and even mildly misaligned teeth. In the process, thin layers of porcelain are bonded to the front of your teeth to give you a full, perfect smile.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. Dental implants use a synthetic root placed in the jaw, in which a dental crown is attached to give you a new tooth that looks and feels natural.

In any case of problematic teeth, Sweetwater Dental can surely help. We utilize CEREC technology for dental crowns, offer effective whitening treatments, and can perform a number of cosmetic and restorative dentistry services.
Whichever the case, be sure to contact Dr. Taylor and Sweetwater Dental for all of your dental needs. We are always happy to help!

Dental Implants Explained

Here at Sweetwater Dental we provide our patients with the knowledge and services necessary in maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile. For a permanent solution to missing teeth, dental implants will provide you with new teeth that look and feel like your own tooth. We’ll refer you to an experienced specialist so you can remain confident about your smile and be on your way to eliminating the pains from missing teeth.

How Dental Implants Work

Though the process of obtaining new teeth from dental implants can take some time, the outcome is sure to bring a great and full smile to your face. Some patients may require a bone graft prior to receiving dental implants, as missing teeth causes the bone in that space to be resorbed by your body. In this case, the implant procedure must be done after a bone graft has been performed and has fully healed. If a bone graft is not necessary, the dental implant procedure can be simple.

Dental implants consist of a few parts and often require multiple appointments. However, with CEREC, you can receive your new crown in just one appointment. First, let’s take a look at what goes into an implant:

The Implant – Made from titanium, an implant will be placed into your jawbone. This implant serves as the root for your new tooth.
The Abutment – Next, it’s time to attach the abutment. An incision is made to expose the implant, then the abutment will be attached and ready for the crown.
The Crown – Finally, a permanent crown—your new tooth—is screwed or cemented to the abutment and you have a brand new tooth!

Advantages of Implants

For every patient, dental implants are made to match the color and shape of your existing teeth to provide a nice match. In addition to the natural look and feel of your new tooth, the care required for dental implants is the same as regular teeth.

Get Started Now

As opposed to other tooth replacement options, dental implants offer a stronger and permanent solution to missing teeth. If you suffer from tooth loss and want help, contact Sweetwater Dental today and we can refer you to a nearby specialist. We want to give our patients the confidence they need with a healthy and full smile.

The Importance of Regular Dental Visits

A lot of people cringe when they hear the word dentist. They associate it with pain and discomfort, but in reality a visit to the dentist doesn’t have to be either of those. If you visit your dentist regularly for check-ups, you will avoid any complicated dental procedures. The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist every 4 to 6 months. That is why, most insurances tend to fully cover 2 visits to the dentist per year.

Why Are They Important?

Regular dental visits help maintain healthy gums and teeth. Through X-rays, dentists check your teeth for early signs of cavities and for anything that may seem out of the ordinary. They clean tartar and plaque build-up from your teeth and leave your mouth feeling clean and fresh.

As well, a visit to your dentist also helps reduce dental emergencies like root canals or in worst cases, tooth extraction. Meaning, the likelihood of expensive and complicated procedures diminishes if you get your teeth checked regularly. The procedures mentioned above, are the ones people associate with the dentist, making them avoid dental offices and, therefore, postponing their visits.


If you stay away from your dentist, you can develop gum disease, which causes your gums to swell and bleed. It can be really painful and you can end losing your teeth. Tooth decay is another way you can lose your teeth. If you have a cavity that goes untreated, your tooth will begin to decompose and eventually, a tooth extraction might be required. Other less detrimental consequences are bad breath and yellowing of your teeth, but they are usually signs that a visit to the dentist is needed.

Visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be your favorite thing to do, but as you can see, it is smarter to go twice a year. If you are looking for the right dentist, Dr. Taylor at Sweetwater Dental can help you. Here at Sweetwater Dental we strive to deliver high-quality care to every member of the family. From kids to grandparents, we make sure your teeth are healthy. We have the latest technology and can perform the most complex procedures without causing you much discomfort.

We are conveniently located in the heart of Rock Springs, Wyoming so don’t hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to see new smiles!
