One of the most common treatments that we perform, other than a filling, is a dental crown. If we recommended a dental crown to you during your last visit, we recommend scheduling your appointment today. We know that it can be intimidating when we recommend a dental treatment, especially if you have never experienced the process before. However, delaying treatment can lead to serious complications with your oral health. Read on to learn more about getting a dental crown and the reasons we may recommend this treatment.
At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, your oral health is important to us. Unfortunately, some patients make poor lifestyle choices, which can negatively impact their oral health. While these habits might not be affecting their oral health now, they will most certainly lead to problems in the future. Here are some choices you may want to stop making:
It can be challenging for some of our patients to maintain an oral hygiene routine that helps prevent tooth decay from developing. This is particularly true for our young patients. If you have a child in your life, you may be familiar with the difficulty they often experience when brushing their teeth. Some children focus solely on the front teeth and forget to brush their back teeth. Other children chew and bite on their toothbrushes, not really accomplishing much of anything. We know parents are passionate about teaching proper oral hygiene, not only to create lasting habits but also to help prevent tooth decay. Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic conditions children experience. We want to share one common dental treatment that can help protect your children’s teeth. Read on to learn more.

Are you interested in learning more about dental implants for yourself or a loved one but concerned you may not be a candidate for treatment? Dental implants are needed when the tooth structure as well as the tooth root are severely damaged or have been removed. Even if you don’t need a tooth replacement at this time, it is better to be informed and prepared should the need arise suddenly.
At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we frequently recommend that children ages seven and older receive an evaluation for orthodontic treatment. For many years, it was commonplace for only young teens to receive orthodontic treatment, so some parents are alarmed when their children are being recommended for orthodontic treatment. Over the past many years, we have learned that early orthodontic treatment provides many benefits. It is known as two-phase orthodontic treatment.
Did you know that we treat patients who suffer from TMD? If you are unfamiliar, TMD — also known as temporomandibular joint disorder — is a common condition that leaves patients with chronic issues that affect the muscles of the face and the temporomandibular joint, which is the hinge that connects the jaw to the skull. You can feel this joint by touching the back of your jaw, near the ear and opening and closing your mouth. We recently had a patient who visited our office for a routine appointment and learned that we treated TMD. Thanks to our treatment recommendations, she now lives pain free!
