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.

At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we could not be happier to welcome patients from all over. In fact, one of our patients drives three hours to visit us! Well, to be honest, we don’t know if he is coming to see the dental team or to visit with the office comfort dog, Gibbs. As you can see in the pictures, they seem like the best of friends! We are truly honored that we have patients who travel such a far distance to receive dental treatment from our team.
We are living in a time when social media dictates popular trends in fashion, dances, and unfortunately, also health advice. The problem is that many of these trends are not created by professionals, so there is often risk and even danger involved, especially with a medical or dental trend. We want to discuss some of the more recent dental trends and explain why they are bad ideas.
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.
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.
