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 don’t know about you, but we can’t believe the holiday season has ended and we have started 2023! Being that we are in Wisconsin, we have our fair share of snow storms to last us through the winter and beyond. Aside from the snow, one of the other problems that occurs during the winter is illness. While we all know how to protect ourselves from illness, some germs still manage to sneak into our bodies. We want to share the importance of continuing to care for your oral health even when you are feeling under the weather. Failure to care for your teeth properly can lead to major consequences in the future.
When was your last visit to our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning? We encourage patients to visit regularly not only so we can check for tooth decay and clean and polish their teeth, but also so we look for other harmful conditions that can lead to serious oral and overall health complications. One condition we inspect for is gum disease, which affects approximately half of American adults. Read on to learn more about this common disease and to see if you may be experiencing symptoms.
