James K. Johnson, DMD
Dentist in Medford, Oregon

As a dentist, I am able to provide a high level of care in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The relationships I've built with my long-standing patients are very strong and each time they come in for a checkup I feel like I have the chance to catch up with an old friend. I have been in practice for over 35 years and have enjoyed every moment of it! All of my staff members have many years of experience in the dental profession and are especially skilled at making patients feel relaxed and comfortable. Working with
a highly trained and caring staff every day is very rewarding and fun. I love dentistry, my patients, and my staff.

Education and Continuing Education
I attended Oregon State University, graduating in 1968 with a Bachelor's degree in Microbiology. I continued on to the University of Oregon Dental School where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1972. After graduation, I worked with the US Public Health Service.

I enjoy being able to offer our patients the latest dental technology in all aspects of dentistry. I continue my education though active memberships in several professional organizations, including the Southern Oregon Dental Society, the American Dental Association, the Southern Oregon Dental Research Group, and the Southern Oregon Implant Study Club. I do all this to ensure my patients always receive the highest quality care possible.

Family Life
I was born in Eugene, OR, and lived in Mapleton, a small logging and lumber town in the coast range of Oregon, until 1973. I had the pleasure of raising my three children in the Rogue Valley and am currently enjoying my three grandchildren who are active in local schools and sports and my newly born grandson. When I have free time I enjoy whitewater rafting, water skiing, boating on Lake Shasta, biking, camping, snow skiing, and fishing for steelhead on the Rogue. I'm also a powerboat captain and enjoy chartering in many different areas.

Helping to Protect Dental Crowns for Longevity
When you get a dental crown, it is important that you learn how to take care of it. If you take good care of it, you will get more years of use out of it than if you did not take care of it. There are a few things that can be done to help make crowns last as long as possible. Here are some of the things that you can do to increase how long your crowns last in your mouth.

Helping Crowns Last as Long as Possible

First, you need to make sure that you are keeping your mouth clean and healthy. This means that you need to keep brushing twice each day. Plus, you need to floss at least once per day. When you are done flossing, you should also rinse your mouth thoroughly with mouthwash. Then, make sure you come in and see us every six months.

Next, you need to make sure you are not chewing on anything that is not good for you. This includes ice, pens, pencils, and similar items. Chew on foods, drink your beverages nicely, and do not put excess pressure on that crown.

Finally, you want to make sure that you get checked out for bruxism. That is when you grind or clench your teeth. Doing this puts a lot of strain on your teeth, especially a crown. It can cause your crown to crack or even break off.

If you are not sure what other things you can do to help keep your crown healthy, ask us at your next appointment!
