During routine oral hygiene examination appointments, we thoroughly inspect your teeth and gums for signs of any problems. Between appointments, it is important to be mindful of your teeth and gums. A problem can arise with your oral health at any time. Like other areas of your body, your mouth gives certain warning signs that you may have a problem with your oral health. These are some signs to be mindful of:
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, we are passionate about helping our patients achieve the ultimate in dental health. One way to achieve this is by being mindful of the state of your oral health between appointments. We see you only a few times a year, so it is up to you to regularly check your teeth and mouth and look for any problems.
We want to do everything we can to help our patients avoid a dental emergency. We know that sometimes emergencies are out of our control, but other times we do not help the state of our oral health by making bad choices, such as avoiding routine examinations. While there are many different dental emergencies that can occur, one in particular requires an immediate visit to our office — a cracked tooth. Read on to learn more about why a cracked tooth should never be ignored.
Aside from Valentine’s Day, there is another special day we hope you celebrated at the beginning of the month — National Toothache Day. Nobody likes a toothache, so you may be wondering why we celebrate a day with this title. This day is not to celebrate the discomfort associated with a toothache, but rather to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining proper oral hygiene in order to avoid the dreaded toothache.
