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.

Are Partial Dentures Right for You?

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.

Picture this: It’s Friday night, you’re getting ready for a night on the town. You’re hungry so you decide to have a little snack…and all the sudden CRUNCH! That didn’t feel like a peanut! Your tongue starts to explore… there it is! Your molar broke. Maybe you’re in pain, maybe you aren’t…but one thing is for sure, you want this taken care of soon, BEFORE it starts hurting!

Or maybe this: It’s almost Christmas. You’ve still got a lot of shopping to do! You have a tooth that has been giving you grief on and off but nothing that makes you feel like an urgent care to your dentist is in order. So you ignore it, and figure you’ll call when the holiday is over. Christmas day: you wake up and your mouth is throbbing. Lightning bolts are shooting through your jaw and you don’t even want to open your presents! Is it too late?

How about this one: It’s three days before your wedding and you’re in a hurry to get the last minute details together. Your mind is elsewhere and your feet have a mind of their own. You fall and your worst nightmare comes true: you just broke your front tooth. What are you going to do with only 3 days until the wedding!?

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
