If you’ve got a cavity, you don’t have a choice about whether or not to get it filled. Left untreated, small cavities become much larger, more painful problems. Something you do have control over,
though, is what you get it filled with. Today’s cavities can be repaired with silver, gold or tooth colored — also known as white or composite — fillings. Let’s take a look at each to understand why your dentist prefers to help patients restore their teeth with tooth colored fillings in Hutchinson.

Did you know that nearly 20% of orthodontic patients are adults? Most people automatically associate wearing braces with middle school and puberty. However, many adults need orthodontic treatment too. Choosing to seek out needed orthodontic treatment as an adult is becoming much more common. One of the best available options for adults is the fast and easy Six Month Smiles orthodontics system. Six Month Smiles focuses on quickly and affordably making noticeable cosmetic improvements to your smile in the shortest time possible. Six Month Smiles uses a modified treatment strategy to provide convenient, common-sense, adult orthodontic solutions. Make your Six Month Smiles appointment with Dr. Grant Ringler today. Dr. Ringler is an experienced Six Month Smiles provider, now proudly restoring smiles daily throughout Hutchison, KS, Newton, Winfield, Manhattan, Great Bend, El Dorado, and the surrounding communities.
Why You May Need Adult Orthodontics
The need for adult orthodontics is twofold. Even if your teeth were straight as a child, they might not remain that way as you get older. Teeth can shift as we age. Dental trauma, tongue thrust, and natural growth can also cause previously straight teeth to turn crooked and overcrowded over time. This shifting can cause severe jaw pain, poor oral hygiene, and a less than confident smile. If you’ve always had crooked teeth, your orthodontic problems can worsen over time. Either way, seeking the adult orthodontic treatment you need is a truly worthwhile investment.
Why Choose Six Month Smiles for Your Adult Orthodontic Needs?
Six Month Smiles offers:
- A much shorter average orthodontic treatment time (4-9 months)
- Nearly invisible clear brackets and tooth-colored wires
- Conservative and predictable results
- Fast and comfortable appointments
- Affordability (Six Month Smiles cost less than traditional braces, clear aligners, or porcelain veneers)
There’s no reason to put off the adult orthodontic treatment you need another year. Make an appointment with the Dr. Grant Ringler for your Six Month Smiles consultation today. Dr. Ringler is a highly qualified adult orthodontics provider, delivering quality dental care to patients of all ages daily throughout Hutchison, KS, Newton, Winfield, Manhattan, Great Bend, El Dorado, and the neighboring areas.

A trip to the dentist doesn’t have to be a painful or anxiety-inducing experience. In fact, being able to finally take care of your oral health issues may give you new peace of mind. Dentists now have a variety of ways to make sure your visit is completely comfortable and pain-free. You can choose to see a dentist that offers Sedation Dentistry. Don’t put off needed dental care any longer. Make an appointment with the office of Dr. Grant Ringler today. Dr. Ringler and his caring associate dentists proudly serve patients throughout Hutchison, KS, Newton, Winfield, Manhattan, Great Bend, El Dorado, and the surrounding communities.
Sedation Dentistry Techniques
It’s important to understand that there is a difference between sedation and anesthesia. Sedation is a state of relaxation, while anesthesia is the blockage of any pain. Dentists use sedation in conjunction with localized anesthesia to make your dental care as pain-free as possible. Sedation techniques may include:
- Conscious Oral Sedation– An oral sedative medication like diazepam is given 30 minutes to an hour before the appointment. You will be fully conscious and responsive but completely relaxed. A local anesthetic is administered as well.
- IV Sedation– Just like the oral sedative, only administered intravenously.
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation-A small mask over the nose is used to administer “laughing gas” to induce a sedated state. A local anesthetic is administered as well.
Sedation Dentistry in Hutchinson, KS
Sedation Dentistry is a perfect solution for those who experience dental anxiety from sensitive teeth, difficulty achieving numbness, complex dental issues, fear of needles or dental instruments, limited time to complete dental work, past traumatic dental experiences or difficulty controlling movement and sitting still. The dentists at Grant Ringler are responsive to patient anxiety. Make an appointment with the office of Dr. Grant Ringler today to experience the difference with Sedation Dentistry. Dr. Ringler and his gentle and attentive associate dentists proudly serve patients throughout Hutchison, KS, Newton, Winfield, Manhattan, Great Bend, El Dorado, and the surrounding communities.

To many people, in order to fully take advantage of everything the summer has to offer, they want to be as healthy as possible. Whether it is physically or mentally, people are definitely putting in a special effort to make sure they feel great for the summer season. One way people may be doing this is paying special attention to their smiles. If you smile is stained or dull, you may find it difficult to put your best foot forward this season. Because our doctors want to give their patients the bright smile they want, they are able to offer teeth whitening to the Hutchinson community.
We have a couple of options we give our patients who want to whiten their smiles. The first one is at-home whitening via whitening trays. The trays that we supply you with are custom made to fit your mouth and your smile only. That way, we are sure that the whitening process is as effective as possible. With this method, we are able to whiten your smile between six to eight shades. We will also supply you with the whitening gel, filling your custom trays and sitting directly on your teeth in order to achieve a bright, beautiful smile.
The second option we offer our patients is whitening strips. This is wonderful for removing surface stains on your smile, as the gel on the strip is able to fit well on your smile. The whitening strips work by sitting on your smile for half an hour every day, and in the course of one to two weeks, your reveal a beautifully whiter smile.
