Here at Silver Creek Dentistry, we like the idea of a New Year’s resolution. And even though we’re well into the month of January already, we think it’s never too late to resolve to take care of your smile. One of the chief ways of doing that is making sure to schedule regular dental checkups. In keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, we like to see our patients at least two times a year for a dental cleaning and exam. Seeing you at these regular intervals allows Dr. Hamman, Dr. Johnson and their team of dental hygienists and dental assistants to not only help you have a clean and bright smile, but a healthy one, too.

The need for a dental crown may be necessary for a number of different reasons. Perhaps you lost part of a filling and need a tooth restored, or maybe a tooth has a deep crack that is threatening the integrity of that tooth. What is not necessary is spending a lot of time in the dentist’s office to receive a crown. At Silver Creek Dentistry in Ripon, WI, Dr. James Hamman and Dr. Christopher Johnson use the CEREC system by Sirona to design, mill and place a strong and durable crown in just one appointment.

A recent survey of people in the United Kingdom revealed that those who have missing teeth are more likely to be viewed as uneducated, lazy, or poor. A social media survey of US adults with missing teeth showed they were less likely to post pictures to social media compared with those who were not missing teeth. For patients who are fully edentulous (without teeth), traditional removable dentures have been the most popular tooth replacement option, but in recent years, dental implants have started to surpass dentures in popularity.
