Preventive and Routine Dental Care
Regular check-ups and cleanings will help you maintain good dental health or improve any conditions you might be currently dealing with. We will work with you to make sure that you are practicing good oral health habits at home and discuss ways to make any necessary improvements. We can also discuss and provide recommendations for tools that can help you keep your teeth in good shape, even if you have arthritis or other challenges.
Dr. Kim will also discuss your periodontal health with you because healthy gums are necessary for healthy teeth. Additionally, studies have shown that your gum health is directly linked to your overall health. We have a number of treatment options available to help you if you have developed periodontal (gum) disease. Before we proceed with any treatment, we will discuss the pros and cons of the different treatment options and work with you to find the most conservative treatment that will still provide the most benefit.
Restorative Dentistry and Removable Appliances
Unfortunately, our teeth are often one of the first places to show signs of aging. If yours are showing signs of wear-and-tear, erosion, or other damage, we can work with you to restore your teeth, or, if this is not feasible, replace them with comfortable, natural-looking prosthetics. We can also check and monitor any current restorations you have, such as crowns or bridges, for signs of damage and, if necessary, replace them.
The technology used to create dental prosthetics has advanced considerably in recent years. We can now make dental crowns and bridges that no longer have a giveaway discoloration at the gumline. With these new and improved restorations, nobody will ever know that they are not your own teeth. Today’s partials and dentures also look much more natural and fit more comfortably than ever before. If you are interested in a more permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth, we can discuss dental implants or implant-retained dentures and partials.
Flexible Financing Options
We understand that many people cannot afford upfront payments for dental work. This is why we offer a range of flexible dental payment options so you can get the care you need while fitting it into your budget. If you are in need of complex dental treatments or a full-mouth restoration and you need a flexible payment plan, please let us know so we can make arrangements that will work with you.
No matter what season of life you are in, you deserve to have a healthy and attractive smile. Please call our Wausau dental office at 715-849-5667 to schedule your appointment with Dr. James Kim.
