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.

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.

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.
