A lot happens to our smile when we lose natural teeth. Obviously, there are problems with eating a variety of meals. Even clear speech could be a problem. However, the major problem is the loss of structure in the jaw. This weakens the jaw, and could even cause patients to look older. More importantly, this limits dental implant placement. Additional treatments could be necessary to strengthen the jaw in order to make dental implant placement possible! Fortunately, Doctors Network could help you book an online appointment with a good Nunam Iqua dentist who is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and provides 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 rebuild jawbone structure in your mandible. Your dentist could employ new tissue from multiple sources. Tissue could be sourced from the back of the jaw or the hip. Donor materials such as bovine bone particles could be employed as well. We could also recommend synthetic materials. During oral surgery, these are applied to the areas of weakened structure in the mandibular bone.


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, preserving your smile. Our team can connect you to a dentist in Nunam Iqua, AK who offers ridge augmentation, and also let you know about our dental plan to make sure your treatment fits your budget!

When you have a toothache, or a tooth that is damaged, you need dental care. Otherwise, the tooth could develop caries and infections. Soon, there is a risk of not only missing teeth, but a spread of infection to other teeth. But sometimes, the damage or cavity is beyond the stage to be treated with a tooth filling. Instead, the tooth could require immediate removal. At Doctors Network, our team can help you book a visit with a Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist or oral surgeon in Nunam Iqua, AK who can offer a gentle tooth extraction as needed.


As we discussed earlier, cavities or injury could be why a tooth needs extraction. But a dentist could also remove one that is loosened by periodontal disease. Extracting a tooth could return balance and chewing function. Extraction could also provide room for treatment with braces! In many cases, this could prevent the negative impact of wisdom tooth eruption. 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 full or partial dentures. Your Nunam Iqua dentist could use the procedure to improve the function, health, and even the beauty of your smile.


Now that you understand when and why a tooth may need an extraction, how do you seek care for one? Well, as mentioned above Doctors Network can find a general dentist in the Nunam Iqua, AK area. But if you don’t have a dental plan, you may worry about costs. Fortunately, we have a 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 ninety percent!

Tooth loss could lead to multiple complications for your smile. For example, this could impact your meal options, or how clearly you can speak. But the most serious complication is the loss of integrity in the jaw. The body suspends the flow of calcium and phosphate to the areas without tooth roots, which in turn causes bone loss and an older appearance and weakens the jaw significantly. Which means you may not be able to receive dental implants to address lost teeth. But Doctors Network can connect you with a dentist in Nunam Iqua, AK who can make smiles ready for implants.


As we’ve discussed in previous posts, a jawbone grafting procedure helps strengthen the mandible, so it can support dental implants. But what about the upper jaw? Instead of a grafting procedure, your Nunam Iqua dentist could perform a sinus lift. Essentially, the dentist will push up the sinus floor to generate new tissues. The new structure can support your new implants. Once the new teeth are secured, this stimulates the growth of bone tissue to keep your jaw secure. Your new teeth can then stay in place for years, 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 Nunam Iqua, AK dentist who can provide these services and takes Blue Cross Blue Shield. When your smile is strengthened and ready, dental implants could provide a full smile again. If you don’t have dental insurance, don’t let this stand between you and optimal oral health. 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 can happen!

You probably know many people who have had their wisdom teeth removed and are eager to divulge their story to you. While this can be helpful, it is still necessary to consult with a professional. If you need these teeth extracted, it is best to have a wide range of information at your disposal. This will help you understand what to expect from wisdom teeth removal and what you should look for in a dentist. Luckily, Doctors Network can help you connect with a great dentist near you in Nunam Iqua, AK that accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield.


The third molars or wisdom teeth are in the back of your mouth, and there are two on the top and two on the bottom. They most commonly appear between the ages of seventeen and twenty-five. Because wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth, their presence can cause complications with your existing ones. They can erupt at unusual angles, only partially come in, or overcrowd your existing teeth. When this occurs, they are likely to succumb to harmful bacteria. If any of these conditions take place, it can be very uncomfortable and can harm your dentition. If you think you might have impediments with wisdom teeth, it is important to see a Nunam Iqua oral surgeon hastily.


If you do need wisdom tooth removal, your dentist will determine how they will go about the extraction to make sure everything goes without complications. They will determine which of your wisdom teeth need to be removed and how complex it will be. They will also assess the appropriate type of sedation and the position of your existing vital anatomy such as nerves. Once they ascertain these details, 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 feel any pain. Your dentist will extract your teeth and look after you the entire time to make sure you are ok. Once your wisdom teeth are extracted, you will receive post-operative instructions. Fortunately, there are many Nunam Iqua dentists that accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and can adeptly extract your wisdom teeth.

Have you ever noticed popping or cracking when you open your mouth? Do you have persistent migraines? If so, this could be related to a common but serious oral health issue. Around 25 million people in the United States suffer from TMD and teeth grinding. Without treatment, these could not only cause pain, but actually crack or chip a tooth! Fortunately, your friends at Doctors Network can connect you to a dentist in Nunam Iqua, AK who accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield.


While very different from one another, one often increases the risk of the other. 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 stress caused by grinding could cause jaw pain. 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 strain the jaw joints, and untreated TMJ disorder could mean eventual teeth grinding, 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 Nunam Iqua who accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield.


Treatment options often vary; for some, relief is possible following crown placement, which improves bite balance. For others, treating misalignment with orthodontic treatment could ease strain and stop symptoms. The most common option most dentists offer is an oral appliance, which fits like a night-guard. If you need to find treatment from a Nunam Iqua dentist. then contact our team!
