Protect Your Oral Health with Comprehensive Gum Disease Therapy in Brookfield, WI

March 17, 2015

168725332Swollen and bleeding gums should never be ignored. Although gum disease is preventable, treatable, and in some cases reversible, many patients misinterpret these facts to mean that gum disease isn’t a serious oral health concern. In fact, gum disease is a serious medical condition that can infect other parts of the body and is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. If you have gum disease symptoms, don’t ignore them; schedule a gum disease therapy appointment with the highly qualified general dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental delivers quality care daily throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and the surrounding communities.

How Does Gum Disease Develop?

o   Gum disease at this stage is easier to treat because it only affects the gums.

o   Patients with gingivitis typically have red, swollen, and bleeding gums.

o   Left untreated, gingivitis can lead to a more serious condition known as periodontitis.

o   Periodontitis often occurs when gingivitis is left untreated.

o   Bacteria cause chronic infection in the gums and supporting tissues.

o   Pockets, or deep spaces, form between teeth and gums.

o   Can cause destruction of supporting bone and tooth loss.

o   May lead to disease progression and surgery.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

Scaling and root planing is a trusted and effective gum disease therapy option. In this procedure, we will gently clean plaque and tartar from your teeth and tooth roots. Scaling and root planing can remove much of the plaque below your gum line where harmful bacteria produce the toxins which irritate your gums and cause inflammation. Further treatment may also include antibiotics. In the case of advanced stage periodontitis, gum and flap surgery may be required to fully restore your good oral health.

Brookfield Gum Disease Therapy Appointments

When you come in for a dental checkup, we can accurately measure the depth of your gum pockets. A pocket depth of 4 or more millimeters is a clear indicator of gum disease. If you avoid the gum disease treatment you need, it could lead to potentially invasive and expensive surgeries in the future. Don’t postpone the treatment you need any longer. Schedule a gum disease therapy appointment with the trusted general dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serves families daily throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and the neighboring areas.

Cosmetic Dentist Advice: Is Cosmetic Bonding Right For You?

November 17, 2014

157247370Let’s face it. We put our teeth through a lot of wear and tear. If you’re like most people, you have more than one concern about your smile. You may not only want a whiter smile, but a straighter, better aligned or more consistently shaped and spaced smile. Fortunately all of these concerns can be addressed by one simple procedure, cosmetic bonding. To see if cosmetic bonding is right for you, just make an appointment with the experienced and attentive dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. The cosmetic dentistry experts at Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serve patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and nearby areas.

The Cosmetic Bonding Procedure

Cosmetic bonding procedures are surprisingly simple. The dentist starts by finding a composite resin shade that matches your teeth. Then the surface of your tooth is roughened and a conditioning liquid is applied. This helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired tooth shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is then used to harden the putty- like resin. After the material is hardened, the dentist will trim, shape and polish it to match the sheen of the tooth surface.

What Problems Can Cosmetic Bonding Fix?

  • Dental bonding is an incredibly versatile cosmetic procedure. Dental bonding can help to correct:
  • Decayed teeth (except cavities)
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Gaps and spaces
  • Elongate shortened teeth
  • Irregular shaping
  • An alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Protect tooth roots exposed by receding gums

Cosmetic Bonding Appointments in Brookfield, WI

Although cosmetic bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures, it may not be able to correct more severe tooth damage or misalignments. To find out if cosmetic bonding is the right solution for you, make an appointment with a trusted team of cosmetic dentists. Make an appointment with the highly qualified cosmetic dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serves patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and surrounding communities.

 

Are Partial Dentures Right for You?

October 21, 2014

497239825A “partial” is a term most people use to refer to a partial denture. Dentures are custom-made prosthetic teeth, usually attached to a gum colored plastic plate. If you are missing more than one tooth but you have mostly healthy teeth, getting a custom-fitted partial to replace your missing teeth is a good solution. Partial dentures can be set up in multiple ways. It’s important to replace any missing teeth to prevent the shifting and misalignment of your other teeth and to maintain normal oral functions like eating and speaking clearly. If you need to replace your missing teeth, make an appointment with the experienced and attentive dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. The dentists at Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serve patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and nearby areas.

Types of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can be either fixed or removable. Removable partial dentures fit in the mouth with metal clasps that hook onto surrounding teeth and require daily maintenance. Fixed partials, also known as bridges, are partials that are anchored to surrounding healthy teeth by a dental bridge. Dental bridges require the surrounding teeth to be shaped and fitted with dental crowns (caps) to allow more room for the bridge and partial denture to fit comfortably in the mouth. Partial dentures can also be attached to a dental implant. Dental implants are tiny titanium rods that replace missing tooth roots and maintain the integrity of the jawbone. Partial dentures attached to dental implants are securely snapped onto the implant but can be easily removed.

Quality Partial Dentures in Brookfield, WI

Although dental implants offer the most benefits, individual medical factors may affect your eligibility to get dental implants. In some cases, removable partial dentures may be the best option. The choice should be made in a consultation with your dentist. Make an appointment with the gentle dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental currently serves patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and surrounding communities.
