A lot happens to our smile when we lose natural teeth. Obviously, there are problems with eating a variety of meals. Even speaking clearly could be a problem. However, the major problem is the break down of density in the jaw. This weakens the jaw, and could even cause an older appearance. More importantly, this limits dental implant placement. Additional treatments could be necessary to strengthen the jaw in order to prepare the gum for dental implants! Fortunately, Doctors Network could help you book an online appointment with a good Mccarthy oral surgeon who is in-network with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and performs jawbone grafting. In addition, we could also discuss our payment plans to make care affordable!


Bone grafting is also known as ridge augmentation. Essentially this enables the dentist to preserve the ridge in your gums. Your dentist could employ new tissue from multiple sources. Tissue could be taken from the back of the jaw or the hip. Donor materials such as freeze-dried bovine bone particles could be employed as well. Some opt for synthetic materials. In a surgical procedure, these are applied to the areas of weakened structure in the lower jaw.


Once the area heals, biocompatible dental implants could be placed. The body will allow them to bond with the jaw. As a result, they help prevent any further breakdown in the jaw, protecting facial structure. Our team can connect you to a dentist or oral surgeon in Mccarthy, AK who performs ridge augmentation and dental implants, and also let you know about our dental plan to make sure your care fits in your budget!

If you have a toothache, or a tooth that is chipped, you need dental care. Otherwise, the tooth could develop cavities and infections. Soon, there is a risk of not only a lost tooth, but a spread of infection to other teeth. But sometimes, the issue is beyond the stage to be treated with a tooth filling or a root canal. Instead, the tooth could require immediate removal. At Doctors Network, our team can help you connect with a Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist or oral surgeon in Mccarthy, AK who can provide a safe tooth extraction as needed.


As we touched on above, advanced decay or injury could be why a tooth needs extraction. But a dentist could also remove one that is loosened by periodontitis. Removing a tooth could return balance and chewing function. Extraction could also provide room for orthodontic treatment! In many cases, this could prevent complications from wisdom teeth. Removing wisdom teeth prior to eruption helps preserve the balance and smile beauty. For people with advanced tooth loss, removing the last few teeth essentially paves the way for dentures. Your Mccarthy general dentist could use the extraction to improve the function, health, and even the beauty of your smile.


Now that you understand why a tooth may require removal, how do you seek care for one? Well, as mentioned above Doctors Network can find your dentist in the Mccarthy, AK area. But if you don’t have dental insurance, you may worry about costs. Fortunately, we have a direct payment plan! Our dental membership plan is opened with an initial fee and maintained with a small fee each month. For some, this could discount care by up to 90%!

Tooth loss could lead to multiple complications for your smile. For example, this could impact your meal options, or how clearly you can talk. But the most serious complication is the loss of mass and density in the jaw. The body suspends the flow of calcium, phosphate, and other minerals to the areas without teeth, which in turn causes bone loss and an older appearance and weakens the structure significantly. Which means you may not be able to receive dental implants to address gaps in your smile. But Doctors Network can connect you with a dentist in Mccarthy, AK who can shore up your jaw.


As we’ve discussed in previous posts, a bone grafting procedure helps strengthen the lower jaw, so it can support dental implants. But what about the upper arch? Instead of adding new tissue, your Mccarthy dentist could perform a sinus lift. Basically, the dentist will raise the sinus floor to generate new support structure. The new structure can support your new implants. Once the new teeth are secured, this stimulates the growth of bone tissue to preserve the area. Your new teeth then stay firm for decades, possibly even a lifetime.


If you need to strengthen your weakened jawbone to support new teeth, we could help. Our team can connect you with a Mccarthy, AK oral surgeon who can offer a sinus lift and takes Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. When your smile is strengthened and ready, dental implants could provide a complete smile again. If you don’t have dental insurance, don’t let this stand between you and a complete smile. Instead, talk to our team about our monthly membership plan. With a monthly membership fee, you can have treatments discounted by as much as 90% in some situations. A full smile is possible again!

This will help you understand what to expect from wisdom teeth extraction and what you should look for in a dentist. Luckily, Doctors Network can help you connect with a great dentist near you in Mccarthy, AK that accepts Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.


The third molars or wisdom teeth are in the back of your mouth, and there is one on each quadrant. They most commonly appear between the ages of seventeen and twenty-five. Because wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth, their arrival can cause issues with your existing ones. They can erupt at odd angles, only partially come in, or overcrowd your current teeth. When this happens, they are more susceptible to harmful bacteria. If any of these situations happen, it can be very painful and can harm your existing teeth. If you think you might have complications with wisdom teeth, it is important to see a Mccarthy dentist quickly.


If you need wisdom tooth removal, your dentist will determine how they will go about the removal to make sure everything goes smoothly. They will decide how many of your teeth need to be removed and how complex it will be. They will also assess the appropriate type of sedation and the condition of your existing teeth. Once they ascertain these details, they can plan your wisdom teeth extraction more easily. When you come in for the procedure, you will receive the appropriate sedation option, so you will not feel pain. Your dentist will extract your teeth and monitor you the entire time to make sure you are doing well. Once your wisdom teeth are extracted, you will receive information about the recovery period.

Have you ever noticed popping or cracking when you open your mouth? Do you have frequent headaches or jaw pain? If so, this could be related to widespread jaw joint disorders. Around 25 million people in the United States suffer from TMD and teeth grinding. Without treatment, these could not only lead to painful symptoms, but actually wear down outer tooth structure! Fortunately, your friends at Doctors Network can connect you to a dental professional in Mccarthy, AK who accepts Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.


While very different from one another, we often find these are related. TMJ disorder develops when the the temporomandibular joints become strained. This could cause problems when you eat or speak. Common symptoms include pain in the jaw, head, and neck. Bruxism means you often grind your teeth or clench your jaw. The pressure could cause jaw pain and headaches. Teeth grinding could also damage teeth. This damage could lead to decayed teeth, infection, and more. Both disorders could be caused by issues that upset bite balance, and untreated TMJ disorder could cause bruxism, and vice-versa. When you have frequent discomfort in your head and neck, you should find help. We can even connect you with a dentist in Mccarthy who accepts Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.


There are, however, multiple treatment options available; for some, relief is possible following recontouring, which improves bite balance. For others, treating misalignment with aligners or braces could ease strain and stop symptoms. The most common option offered by most dentists is an oral splint, which fits like a mouthguard. If you need to find treatment from a Mccarthy dentist. then contact our team!
