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

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.

Alleviate Pain with Gentle Root Canal Therapy from Elmbrook Family Dental

176985787Are you tired of tooth pain and sensitivity? If you’re seeking relief from tooth aches and sensitivity to hot and cold foods, Elmbrook Family Dental can help with root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is a dental procedure where your diseased or damaged inner tooth pulp is gently removed and the inside areas (root canals) are disinfected, filled, and sealed. Once root canal therapy is completed, a dental crown can be placed over your the tooth to restore its full functioning. You can make an appointment with the gentle restorative dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental for your root canal therapy procedure today. The highly qualified dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serve patients of all ages throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and the surrounding communities.

Do You Need Root Canal Therapy?

Inside each tooth are soft pulp tissues containing blood, nutrients, and nerves from which you experience sensations of hot and cold. This tissue is vulnerable to damage from infection, accidental injury, tooth fracture, or trauma from repeated dental procedures. If your tooth becomes diseased or injured, bacteria can build up inside the pulp, spreading infection and causing pain and sensitivity. You may experience severe, constant, or throbbing pain, as well as prolonged sensitivity to heat and cold, swelling and tenderness in the gums and face, and discoloration. In some limited cases, the pulp may die so gradually that there is little noticeable pain.

Does Root Canal Therapy Hurt?

Not when you choose the gentle dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental. Your root canal therapy will be performed in conjunction with our Single Tooth Anesthesia system. A rubber dam will be placed in your mouth to isolate the infected tooth. The dentist will then make an opening through the natural crown of the tooth to access the root canal and pulp chamber. Creating this access also relieves pressure built up inside the tooth which can immediately decrease any pain. Next, small files are used to clean and disinfect the entire canal space. The canals are also slightly enlarged and shaped to receive a rubber-like filling material called gutta-percha. However, the tooth will not be filled or sealed until completely free of bacteria. You may receive a temporary seal, or the tooth may be left open to drain with an antibiotic to counter any spread of infection. Once the canals are completely clean and filled with gutta-percha, sealer cement is applied. The restored tooth is then protected by a temporary filling or crown until a permanent restoration is placed.

Brookfield Root Canal Therapy Appointments

Successful root canal therapy will not only ease pain, but will also save your natural tooth from extraction. Don’t let tooth pain or discomfort get the best of you. Make your root canal therapy appointment with the trusted family dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. The restorative dentistry experts at Elmbrook Family Dental proudly restore smiles daily throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and nearby areas.

Testimonials

I have been looking for a new dentist and wanted a place that would be able to take care of our whole family. I just went with my daughter and we both had a great experience. It was her first time at the dentist and every member of the staff, from the receptionist, to hygienists, to the dentists were so kind and went out of their way to make my daughter feel comfortable. We both got great dental care and she keeps asking to go back! I would highly
