Dealing With Sensitive Teeth

At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we want you to be free from issues with your oral health. Between appointments, it is important to evaluate your oral health to determine if you are seeing any warning signs that may indicate any problems. One issue you may experience is tooth sensitivity. You may feel this when you eat foods that are extremely hot or cold, such as ice cream or coffee. While experiencing tooth sensitivity on occasion can be normal, if you are regularly experiencing this issue it may indicate a problem.

Do You Have TMD?

Do you regularly experience discomfort in your jaw and it is affecting your quality of life? If so, you may be suffering from a common condition called TMD, also known as temporomandibular joint disorder. Unfortunately, many adults are never diagnosed properly, and their condition and symptoms remain untreated. We never want our patients to live a life of discomfort. We are proud to treat our patients’ TMD symptoms. In fact, our team recently had the opportunity to attend a TMD and airway seminar to improve the level of care we are able to provide to you, our beloved patients.

Follow After-Treatment Directions

At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we want our patients to have successful dental treatments. When we recommend a dental treatment, we stress the importance of scheduling your treatment in a timely manner to help prevent decay from progressing further. When you arrive for treatment, we will explain what to expect during treatment and will give specific recovery directions. Procedures such as dental fillings will not have as detailed instructions as patients who are receiving dental implants or a root canal. No matter if you are visiting us for a filling or an implant, it is important to follow our after treatment directions.

Why Does My Breath Smell Like That?

Do you feel self-conscious about the smell of your breath? Do you find yourself keeping your distance when speaking to others?

Persistent breath issues can be a warning that something is wrong with your oral health. Continue reading to learn more about what can cause bad breath.

Importance Of Jaw Placement

At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we believe in treating a child’s orthodontic needs as soon as possible. Many times, when parents learn their children need to start orthodontic care at a young age, they can get slightly nervous and panicked, thinking it is too soon. Parents often look at their children’s teeth to see if they are crooked or crowded when trying to decide if braces are necessary. The placement of the jaw and arch development are the true reasons we may recommend orthodontic treatment at an early age.

This condition often remains undetected and can cause great discomfort to patients. Continue reading to learn more about TMD and how we can help.
