Major problems arise when we lose natural teeth. Obviously, there are problems with eating your favorite foods. Even talking clearly could be a problem. However, the major problem is the loss of mass and density in the jaw. This weakens the jaw, and could even cause a prematurely aged 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 schedule an appointment with a great Fairview oral surgeon who is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and offers ridge augmentation. In addition, we could also discuss our membership program 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 like bovine bone may be recommended too. Some opt for synthetic materials. Through oral surgery, these are applied to the areas of weakened structure in the mandibular bone.


Once the area heals, the 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, preserving your smile. Our team can connect you to a dentist in Fairview, AK who offers this surgical procedure, and also let you know about our membership plan to make sure your care fits in your budget!

When you have a toothache, or a tooth that is chipped, you need dental care. Otherwise, the tooth could develop a decay and infections. Soon, there is a risk of not only tooth loss, but a spread of infection to other teeth. But sometimes, the issue is beyond the stage to be treated with a tooth filling. Instead, the tooth could require an extraction. At Doctors Network, our team can help you find a Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist or oral surgeon in Fairview, AK who can offer a gentle tooth extraction as needed.


As we discussed earlier, severe cavities or injury could be why a tooth needs extraction. But a dentist could also remove one that is loosened by periodontitis. Extracting a tooth could return balance and chewing function. Extraction could also provide room for orthodontic treatment! In many cases, this could prevent wisdom tooth impaction. Removing wisdom teeth prior to eruption helps preserve the balance and overall esthetics. For people with advanced tooth loss, removing the last few teeth essentially paves the way for dentures. Your Fairview dentist could use the extraction to improve the function and health of your smile.


Now that you understand why a tooth may need an extraction, how do you seek care for one? Well, as mentioned above Doctors Network can connect you with a dentist in the Fairview, AK area. But if you don’t have dental insurance, you may worry about costs. Fortunately, we have a financing option! Our dental membership plan is opened with an initial fee and maintained with a small fee each month. For some, this could reduce the cost of care by up to 90%!

Tooth loss could lead to several problems for your smile. For example, this could impact how easily you eat your favorite foods, or how clearly you can articulate. But the most severe complication is the break down of structure in the jaw. The body suspends the flow of calcium, phosphate, and other minerals to the areas without tooth roots, which in turn causes bone loss and an aged appearance and weakens the structure significantly. Which means you may not be able to receive dental implants to address your missing teeth. But Doctors Network can connect you with a dentist in Fairview, AK who can make smiles ready for implants.


As discussed in previous posts, a jawbone grafting procedure helps strengthen the mandible, so it can support dental implants. But what about the the upper area? Instead of adding new tissue, your Fairview dentist could perform a sinus lift. Basically, the dentist will push up the sinus floor to induce the formation of new bone structure. The new structure can support one or more implants. Once the new teeth are secured, this stimulates the growth of bone tissue to preserve the area. Your new teeth can then stay firm for decades, possibly even a lifetime.


If you need to strengthen your weakened maxillary jawbone to support new teeth, we could help. Our team can connect you with a Fairview, AK dentist who can address tooth loss and takes 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 good oral health. Instead, talk to our team about our monthly membership plan. With a monthly fee, you can have treatments discounted by as much as 90% in some situations. A full smile is possible again!

We can help by connecting you to one that accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield. After all, we all benefit from routine dental care!


How does the gum disease start? The disease could occur due to poor oral hygiene habits.

You probably have lots of friends who have had their wisdom tooth pulled and are eager to describe their experience to you. While this can be helpful, it is still necessary to consult with a dentist or an oral surgeon. If you need your wisdom teeth removed, it is important to have a plethora of information at your disposal. This will help you understand what to expect from wisdom teeth removal and what you should expect from the dentist. Luckily, Doctors Network can help you connect with a great dentist near you in Fairview, AK that accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield.


The third molars or wisdom teeth are in the back of the mouth, and there is one on each quadrant. They most commonly appear between seventeen and twenty-five. Because they are the last teeth to erupt, their arrival can cause problems with your existing ones. They can erupt at unusual angles, only partially come in, or overcrowd your existing teeth. When this occurs, they are more susceptible to bacteria and infections. If any of these situations happen, it can be very painful and can damage your existing teeth. If you think you might have complications with wisdom teeth, it is important to see a Fairview oral surgery specialist hastily.


If you in fact need wisdom tooth extraction, your oral healthcare professional will determine how they will go about the removal to make sure everything goes according to the plan. They will decide how many of your teeth need to be removed and how complex it could get. They will also assess the appropriate type of anesthesia and the position of your existing teeth and nerve. Once they ascertain these facts, they can extract your wisdom teeth more easily. When you come in for the procedure, you will receive the appropriate anesthesia option, so you will not experience any pain. Your dentist will extract your teeth and pay attention to your needs the entire time to make sure you are doing well. Once your wisdom teeth are removed, you will receive post-surgery care instructions. Fortunately, there are many Fairview dentists that accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and can effectively pull your wisdom teeth.

Did you ever notice a popping sensation in your jaw? Do you have aching jaw and facial pain? If so, this could be related to two common jaw joint issues. Around twenty-five million people in the United States suffer from TMD and teeth grinding. Without treatment, these could not only lead to painful symptoms, but actually crack or chip a tooth! Fortunately, your friends at Doctors Network can help you find a dental professional in Fairview, AK who accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield.


While very different from one another, these two disorders are often related. TMJ disorder develops when the joints connecting the jaw and skull are stressed. This could cause problems opening and closing the mouth fully. Common symptoms include pain in the jaw, head, and neck. Bruxism means you grind or clench your teeth nightly. The pressure of clenching could cause jaw pain and headaches. Teeth grinding could also weaken and damage the tooth structure. 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 lead to bruxism, and vice-versa. When you have chronic pain in your head and neck, you should find help. We can even connect you with a dentist in Fairview who accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield.


Treatment options often vary; 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 most dentists offer is a custom splint, which fits like a mouthguard. If you need to find treatment from a Fairview dentist. then contact our team!
