Dental Root Canal Treatment

Adult Dentistry Oconomowoc WISaving Hopeless Teeth

It is now known that tooth extraction should be avoided whenever possible to avoid other dental problems later on. Root canals can save a tooth with infected or damaged roots that might have warranted extraction in the past. We are very experienced in the latest advancements of this therapy.

During this procedure, a tooth with root problems can be fixed by removing the pulp from the interior of the tooth. A special filling material is packed into the tooth. Sometimes, a crown is placed over the tooth to give additional strength.

Patients have often avoided having a root canal because of the reputation they have received in the past. Advancements both in technology and anesthetics have made considerable improvements in this therapy, and patients now find root canals to be quite manageable.

Recognizing and Treating Oral Thrush

Recognizing and Treating Oral Thrush
Oral thrush, also known oral candidiasis, is a condition that occurs when a fungus called Candida albicans builds up on the lining of your mouth.

Anyone can develop oral thrush, but babies, young children, older adults, or anyone with a compromised immune system due to an illness such as HIV are more susceptible. Conversely, candidiasis lesions can be an early sign of an HIV infection.

The main symptom of oral thrush is creamy white lesions in the mouth, usually on the tongue or inner cheeks. In some cases, the lesions may appear on the roof of the mouth or on the back of the throat.

Interestingly, oral thrush is not caused by poor oral hygiene. Thrush is caused when the naturally occurring fungi in the body get out of balance, which is why the very old, very young, and people with weak immune systems are at higher risk. Good oral hygiene, however, is an essential part of treating oral thrush. Healthy adults and children can recover fairly easily from the infection, especially if they follow a complete oral care routine of twice-daily tooth brushing and daily proper flossing.

Senior Dental Care

Dental Care for Seniors Oconomowoc WISenior Dental Care is Different

As we grow older, signs of age appear on our teeth and gums as well as our bodies. After years of caffeine or tobacco consumption, teeth will no longer be their whitest. Fillings often loosen over time, making it easy for decay to set into a tooth. At the onset of gum disease, treatment should begin immediately to keep your natural teeth and overall good health. If you take medications, sometimes the necessary flow of saliva through your mouth is diminished. With regular check-ups, we can provide timely solutions to all these conditions before they become big problems. We encourage the continuance of daily dental hygiene and proper nutrition to take care of your oral health. If you experience bleeding when brushing or flossing, please contact us immediately.

Tooth Abscess Symptoms And Treatment

Symptoms And Treatment Of Tooth Abscess
If you have a toothache that goes beyond mild to moderate tooth pain and reaches a level of severe, throbbing pain, it could be a sign of a tooth abscess. A tooth abscess is a pus-filled lesion at the roots of a tooth, and is caused by an infection. The first sign is a throbbing toothache that won’t go away.

At first, the tooth will likely be sensitive to chewing and biting, as well as to heat and cold. You also may develop a fever, swollen lymph nodes in your jaw or neck, or swelling on your face.

If the abscess ruptures, you’ll know because of the nasty-tasting discharge in your mouth. Although the pain may recede if the abscess ruptures, you still need to be treated by a dentist in order to get rid of the infection, save the tooth and avoid complications. If the abscess doesn’t rupture, the infection can spread to other parts of the body. This is not a problem to ignore.

Treatment will likely include draining the abscess if it hasn’t ruptured. Your dentist also may recommend that you take over-the-counter pain relievers, rinse your mouth with warm salt water, and take antibiotics. More severe abscesses may require a root canal to remove infected tissue, and the worst cases require extraction of the tooth.

A tooth abscess can get its start as an untreated tooth cavity, so the best way to prevent an abscess is to prevent the cavity in the first place by following a consistent oral health routine of twice daily tooth brushing and daily flossing. Regular visits to your dentist are important too, especially if you’ve been treated for an abscess. This allows your dentist to confirm that the infection has cleared.

Children's Dentist

Pediatric Dental Care Oconomowoc WI
Your Child’s Dentist is as Important as Their Pediatrician
We want your children to take good daily care of their teeth starti
ng at an early age. Children’s teeth are more prone to cavities at a young age for various reasons. Often children do not brush as they should. Parents can supervise how well their children clean their teeth, so they will develop proper habits. Kids also eat more often throughout the day (grazing), which results in more exposure to the acids produced from eating, eventually causing more cavities.

If a tooth is not clean enough to begin with, additional acids will speed up the rate of decay. If better dietary choices and hygiene habits are instilled, together with a mineralizing varnish, chances of cavities developing can be significantly minimized.

Causes and Treatment of Canker Sores

Cold Sores and Canker Sores Compared
It’s easy to confuse cold sores and canker sores.

Unlike a cold sore, a canker sore is not contagious, and it appears on the inside tissues of the mouth rather than the outer surface of the lip (which is where cold sores appear). A canker sore, also known as an apthous ulcer, looks like a small, round or oval lesion that has a white or yellowish center surrounded by red. They tend to be indented, like a crater, rather than raised, like a bump.

Canker sores most often appear on the inside of the cheeks and lips or at the base of the gum. Canker sores are not usually associated with bleeding gums, so if you are experiencing bleeding gums you should see your dentist to be evaluated for possible gum disease.

The majority of canker sores are mild. Mild canker sores are less than one-third of an inch long and usually heal on their own after a few weeks.

But major apthous ulcers, defined as larger than 10 mm in size, can take more than a month to heal and can cause scarring when they finally do heal. So it’s important to visit your doctor or dentist if you have a canker sore that has persisted for more than a few weeks. These large ulcers are most common in young adults after puberty, and they are more likely to recur than smaller sores. Older adults are more prone to herpetiform lesions, in which dozens of tiny lesions group together to form a large ulcer.

The exact cause of canker sores remains uncertain, but possible factors include an allergic reaction to bacteria in the mouth, a minor injury to the inside of the mouth due to dental work or poorly fitting dental appliances, food allergies or health problems, such as celiac disease and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Although most canker sores resolve on their own, if you have a large or stubborn lesion, your dentist may prescribe an antibiotic mouth rinse, topical paste to apply to the lesion, or a nutritional supplement if poor nutrition may be the cause of the canker sore.

What To Know About TMJ

What Are TMJ Diseases And Disorders? 
TMJ diseases and disorders are a group of conditions that cause pain in and around the jaw joint (called the Temporomandibular Joint or TMJ) and nearby muscles. Jaw problems affect a person's ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow and even breathe.

What Are Symptoms Of TMJ?
Pain is the most common symptom of TMJ; however, some people have no pain but still have problems using their jaws. Specific symptoms include:
Face pain
Pain in the jaw joint and nearby areas, including the ear
Back pain
Inability to open the mouth comfortably
Clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint
Locking of the jaw when attempting to open the mouth
Headaches
A bite that is uncomfortable or feels “off”
Swelling on the side of the face, neck or shoulder

Other symptoms may include ringing in the ears, decreased hearing, dizziness and vision problems.

Keep in mind that occasional discomfort in the jaw joint or chewing muscles is common and is not a cause for concern. Many people with TMJ problems get better without treatment. Often the problem goes away on its own in several weeks to months.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 6

I have diabetes. Will I get gum disease
Diabetes is a chronic disease which affects your body's ability to process sugar. The resulting high blood sugar can cause problems with your eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other parts of your body. Diabetes can also lower your resistance to infection and can slow the healing process. If you have diabetes, you are at greater risk of developing some oral health problems, including gum disease, so it's important that you are extra diligent with your oral health.

Dental Sealants Dentist

Preventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!Dental Sealants Oconomowoc WI
Children don’t always brush properly, and sometimes even meticulous brushing doesn’t clean the grooves and contours of teeth. If acids and bacteria build up, plaque will form and lead to decay. Any amount of decay is permanent damage for a tooth and it will need a filling. To keep all this from happening, we recommend one application of a sealant to their teeth.

Here is the quick and easy treatment. All the teeth are cleaned and sterilized. Our dentist applies a thin, clear plastic coat to each tooth and then bonds the sealant with a curing light. And that’s it! The procedure takes only a few minutes. Your children will feel very comfortable with this effective treatment as there are no shots or drilling, and all tooth structure remains intact.

This is one of the best preventive treatments children and adolescents can have to maintain their natural teeth for a lifetime!

White Dental Fillings

Filling Choices to Fit Every Need
White Dental Fillings Dentist Oconomowoc WIFor many years, silver-mercury amalgams were the most commonly used filling material. They work well as a restoration, are affordable, and are covered by most insurance plans. Many patients, however, do not like the noticeable appearance of this metallic filling in their teeth. At our practice, we offer the latest, most advanced restorations that contain no metals and add strength to the tooth structure. These modern fillings can match the shade of your tooth color, so they are nearly invisible and not apparent when speaking or laughing. They bind very tightly to the healthy tooth to greatly reduce the chance of decay setting in. We are pleased to offer you these two options and will discuss which type of filling best suits your needs.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 2

I don't have cavities so I can't have gum disease
Being cavity-free doesn’t ensure you are in the clear where gum disease is concerned. That’s because gum disease is painless and many people have no idea they have it. Gums that bleed easily or are red, swollen or tender is a sign of gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease and the only stage that is reversible. When caught early gingivitis can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at the dental office, followed by daily brushing and flossing.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 1

Gum disease is not that common
On the contrary, gum disease is extremely common. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of adults age 30 and older suffer from some form of gum disease. Gum disease, an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth, is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. Plaque that is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth can eventually harden into calculus or tartar.

We recommend all of our patients have their teeth cleaned by our hygienist on a regular basis. Plaque and tartar that build up on teeth over time will not be removed with your toothbrush. If left on teeth and below the gum line for prolonged periods, you take the chance of developing more serious health problems. Research has found that untreated gum disease is linked to life-threatening conditions like stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. Please take this recommendation seriously to stay healthy!

Preventive Dentistry

The Primary Cause of Lost TeethGum Disease Treatment Oconomowoc WI
You may think that most tooth loss is from decay, but the main reason is gum disease. Sometimes it is completely undetected up to the point of losing your teeth. If it is treated in the earlier stages, there are very effective nonsurgical methods to halt the infection. If you have bleeding gums from brushing or flossing or loose teeth, you should make an appointment with our office so we can prevent the loss of any teeth due to gum disease.
Heart Disease and Gum Disease Oconomowoc WIGum Disease Can Contribute to Heart Disease and Even Stroke
The American Dental Association has announced that 80% of all Americans have some stage of periodontal (gum) disease. Dentists consider this to be an epidemic level. If it were another disease such as tuberculosis, the general public would be concerned about the problem. But recent medical research has given reason for people to be more concerned about any level of gum disease. Gum disease has now been linked to the life-threatening conditions of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. The bacteria from infected gums travel within the bloodstream to other vital organs, with a potential effect on the state of their health.

The American Academy of Periodontology reports, “studies found periodontal infection may contribute to the development of heart disease, increase the risk of premature, underweight births, and pose a serious threat to people whose health is already compromised due to diabetes and respiratory diseases.”

Now the Good News
If you wait too long to stop your gum infection, surgery will be necessary to reverse the condition. But if treatment begins in the earlier stages of the infection, nonsurgical methods can be used. Both surgery and nonsurgical procedures are covered under the majority of dental plans.

Periodontal Disease Treatment Oconomowoc WI
What’s So Bad About Losing a Tooth?
Is it a big deal to lose a tooth? Well, you can’t die from it, but missing just one tooth will allow other teeth to shift or move. This is not good, as you will not absorb as much nutrition from your food as with a full set of teeth. Other problems can result as well – chewing may become more difficult so softer, high-calorie foods may be favored that can add unwanted weight. Your speech may not be as clear as with a full set of teeth, and your face can take on a “sunken” look, which makes you look older than your age. Dental implants can replace one or many missing teeth. They look natural and function just like a real tooth. Even a dentist would have to look very closely to tell the difference.

Sedation Dentsitry

Sedation Dentistry for Dental Care in Complete ComfortSedation Dentistry Oconomowoc WI
If you have had anxiety about treatment in the past, we have a solution to make it easy for you. With sedation dentistry, you can have all the necessary work performed without the fear.

By taking one pill an hour before your appointment, you will gradually progress into a deep level of sedation. You will be able to answer questions when asked, but you will not be aware of the work being done. Your vital signs are continually monitored during treatment, and when finished, someone will drive you home. In about an hour, you are back to normal.

Some patients have an even greater fear of being “knocked out.” You are not completely out as during surgery. The sedation is just enough so you are relieved of any anxiety because you do not feel anything, but still maintain consciousness.

Conscious sedation works well for people who are very resistant to anesthesia – they simply do not get numb. Other patients can’t fit repeated visits into their schedule and need to take care of all their work in one visit. Conscious sedation makes it easy for these patients. We also offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, for some patients to achieve their state of relaxation.

Dental Implant Dentist


Dental Implants Dentist Oconomowoc WIMissing Teeth? Why Not ‘Grow’ New Ones?
 

Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and don’t need to be taken out at night. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, there’s no need to be referred to another office.
