Importance of dental care before/during/ and post pregnancy

Importance of dental care before/during/ and post pregnancy

I do not know if it is just me, but everything runs in cycles in our dental office. In the last few weeks, our dental office has 

had experienced many patients that are pregnant. Congratulatory and happy times are the norm. However, for some 

pregnant patients the dental visits were emergencies. The last thing an expectant mother needs is more complications 

caused by teeth or gums. I think a few recommendations can greatly aid in a pleasant dental experience before/during/post 



If you are planning to have a child, a good place to visit is not only your medical doctor, but also your family dentist. 

Both doctors can guide you through your pregnancy so you can have the most pleasant experience. A comprehensive

Dental maintenance can save you over $100,000.00 in your lifetime!

I thought I tell you a conversation I had with a patient this week concerning his dental condition. This new patient came to my office complaining of a wisdom tooth that was bothering him for awhile. Upon examination of his mouth, I noticed other issues such as his gums and some cavities. I asked the patient his dental habits such as flossing, brushing, and rinsing with an antiseptic oral rinse (Listerine). The patient’s response was “I don’t have time.” This is a typical response by many patients who tend to neglect their teeth and gums. ...

Dental Dentures: Removable/Fixed Complete/Partial

Dental Dentures: Removable/Fixed Complete/Partial 

Are you a person who has had problems with your teeth all your life?  Maybe you  have had troubles since you were a child with cavities or you currently have periodontal (gum) disease.  Just maybe you have problems with things as simple as chewing and eating. However for you these routine daily tasks are a major effort on your part because your  teeth hurt. But this is not the worst of your problems because the thing that bothers you the most is that you can not smile because you are ashamed of your teeth. All of your life you had problems and now you want to finally do something about it. I say that is great! However, like so many others, you are so confused as to what are the best options for you. I  completely understand your confusion. In fact with so much information on the  internet and television, it is even more overwhelming. Well, I am glad you are here so that I may put some light on this matter which may aid in your decision. 

Let me start with a general explanation of dentures. Basically, dentures can be classified into two categories: removable or fixed. Removable denture is by definition a denture that you can remove by yourself. A complete denture replaces all your teeth and a partial denture only replaces the missing teeth. A complete denture on the upper stays in place by suction, whereas a partial denture clips onto the  remaining teeth as anchors. On the lower jaw, a complete denture rests on the remaining bone for retention and a lower partial denture like the upper stays in its place by grasping onto the remaining teeth with clasps.

This is a basic explanation of dentures as a whole. But as you know every patient’s condition  and situation is different concerning dentures: from the current condition of teeth or absence  of teeth to patient’s occlusion (your jaw relationship). Only an experienced and qualified dentist can give you the best recommendation for you. What are you waiting for? A brand new smile is waiting for you. Imagine: no more pain, eating whatever you like, and having a beautiful new smile. Priceless. So if you are ready; and it sounds like you are, please call our office at 715-849-5667 to get a consult with Dr. Kim on your next set of dentures. 


                                       Beautiful Smiles for Today and Tomorrow!
