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.

After Hours Dental Emergency?

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!?

Believe it or not, these are all real, true dental emergencies that we have treated at our Brookfield dental office. Our patients know and trust that they can call upon us at any hour of the day or night and we will deliver. New patients have commended us on our quick response and attention to detail when it comes to treating their emergencies. The bottom line is: we are here to help you.

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
