Do you chew on pen caps or bite your nails? Did you know that these habits can be harmful to your teeth and oral health? You might be surprised how a seemingly innocent habit such as chewing on a pen cap can do damage to your oral health. Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans explain how common habits harm your oral health and damage your teeth.
Biting Your Fingernails
So you break a nail and can’t find nail clippers, what do you do? Many people might alleviate this problem by biting their nails. And for others, biting fingernails is just a nervous habit. Now imagine how many things your hands touch in a day’s time. Door knobs, elevator buttons, and sink faucets are riddled with bacteria that we encounter on a daily basis. Bacteria tend to collect on nail beds and underneath fingernails. When you chew your fingernails, you can potentially transfer the bacteria on your hands into your mouth. (more…)
At Wager Evans Dental, we’re proud to offer comprehensive dental care—cosmetic, restorative, preventive, general, and children’s dentistry—to patients of all ages. Reno dentists Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans lead the Wager Evans Dental team and, to help you feel more comfortable while in the dental chair, they want to introduce themselves.
Meet Dr. William Wager
Falling in love with the Reno, Lake Tahoe, and Virginia City area as a child, Dr. Wager knew he would return to this spot as an adult. (more…)
At Wager Evans Dental, Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans offer top-notch general, preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services to our patients of all ages from across the greater Reno area. We want our patients to know that we go above and beyond the care given at traditional comprehensive care dental practices. How? By offering sleep apnea treatment.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition in which your oral and throat muscles relax and shift when you sleep, blocking your airway. This obstruction interferes with your breathing while you sleep, eventually causing you to stop breathing completely. These pauses in breathing can last anywhere from ten seconds to a few minutes and can occur several times within a sleep cycle, adding up to countless times each night. (more…)
The month of April is National Facial Protection Month, so, today, Reno dentists Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans want to discuss how the Wager Evans Dental team can help you protect your pearly whites.
What is a Mouth Guard?
We offer mouth guards to our active dental patients to help them protect their teeth from injury during physical activity.
By definition, a mouth guard—also known as a mouth protector, mouth piece, or gum shield—is a protective device that is worn within the mouth and covers the teeth to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, dental arches, lips, and gums. (more…)
At Wager Evans Dental, Reno dentists Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans strive to help our patients achieve optimal oral health and, often, that requires treatment for periodontal (gum) disease. In addition to traditional dental cleanings, we offer Perio Protect and deep cleanings, as well as other treatments to help our patients overcome this serious oral health problem.
Dr. Wager, Dr. Evans, and our team will not rest until your teeth and gums are back in optimal health, but what happens at the completion of your treatment? Generally, periodontal patients require more care than just regular biannual dental cleanings and checkups to maintain a healthy smile. (more…)
As general and cosmetic dentists, Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans promote a family-friendly dentist office in Reno. In fact, our entire staff at Wager Evans Dental loves to see our younger patients. Children without access to dental care often suffer with tooth decay. Untreated cavities cause pain and discomfort and may affect your child’s ability to speak or eat properly. Furthermore, oral health problems may distract your children from learning in school, too. At Wager Evans Dental, we take preventive measures to combat childhood tooth decay and keep children’s mouths healthy.
Teeth are surrounded by tooth enamel. This protective layer is composed of minerals. As the strongest substance in the human body, tooth enamel prevents bacteria from eating away at your child’s teeth. However, strong acid can weaken enamel. When enamel is damaged, bacteria attack the exposed part of the tooth. When our younger patients experience enamel loss or erosion, we prescribe fluoride treatments. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps replenish tooth enamel. We may apply topical fluoride in a great tasting flavor directly to your child’s teeth after a dental cleaning. We also recommend that you purchase fluoridated toothpastes with the American Dental Association’s seal of approval. (more…)

Exactly one week ago, February 28, was National Tooth Fairy Day, and—as Reno children’s and family dentists—Dr. William Wager and Dr. Brian Evans are always looking for new ways to teach little ones about the importance of healthy teeth and gums. Today, let’s take a look back at the history of the tooth fairy, and how to teach your child about quality dental health and hygiene.
The Origin of the Tooth Fairy
Since the beginning of the human race, people have lost their baby teeth and adult teeth have erupted in their place. While records of the rituals surrounding the loss of baby teeth don’t date back to the beginning of time, history shows that special ceremonies and traditions have accompanied the loss of baby teeth for at least a few hundred years.
