dental-implants-or-bridge

As children, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems articulating could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need a professional and friendly in-network dentist in Alton, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.


First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jawbones and facial structure following tooth loss.


If you live in the Alton‘s neighborhoods and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!


P. S. Please celebrate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you suffer from a sleep disorder, you may not realize it, but a dentist near you could help. In fact, dentists can often provide a comfortable solution to stop nighttime airway obstruction. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition in which as you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the tissues around the throat collapse and cut off airflow. People literally stop breathing for a few moments until the brain alerts the body to resume breathing. Even as you assume you slept well, you could experience daytime drowsiness! But when should you contact Doctors Network to find Alton, MO dentists who provide treatment options?


Symptoms of sleep apnea include chronic snoring. Daytime drowsiness, and moodiness could occur too. Without intervention, OSA could impact your immune system and heart health. When you experience similar symptoms, consider seeing a dental professional. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep air passages clear while you sleep, so you can finally enjoy a good night’s rest.


This week we are celebrating our dental practices in New York, NY.

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or a tooth that is stained, then you need a cosmetic consultation. With tooth reshaping and dental bonding in Alton, MO, these and other aesthetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a restorative dentist in Alton, MO who accepts new patients and offers cosmetic dentistry. You may be surprised to discover just how much these two treatments can do in a single appointment.


Dental filling repairs cosmetic concerns using a metal-free material. The bonding material, a mixture of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed onto the prepared area. Alton dentists also use this material to fill tooth cavities. During dental contouring, the dentist simply sands and polishes the outer tooth surfaces to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


This week we are celebrating our Brooklyn cosmetic dentists. With both services, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, repair dental damage, mask unattractive teeth stains, and close embarrassing spaces between the teeth.

Periodontitis is very widespread. In fact, studies from the CDC reveal that half of adults over the age of thirty suffer from the disease. Without treatment, gum disease could cause uncomfortable symptoms. Also known as periodontal disease, this is actually the most common cause of missing teeth. All that to say, when you develop changes in your gums, you should seek help right away. Inflamed and receding gums, especially with bleeding, are common indicators that you need to find a Alton community dental provider.


Doctor Network’s search tool can help connect you with dental clinics in Alton MO that accept new patients and can offer a diagnosis after examining your smile. If there is any sign of inflammation, then a treatment plan can be created. For mild periodontitis, a deep cleaning followed by traditional cleanings every three to four months could safeguard the smile. For severe periodontitis stages, there are options like laser dentistry, pocket reduction, gum grafts, and more to restore your gums!

In childhood, many of us grind our teeth for short periods of time. The issue tends to be temporary. But for some, bruxism could mean chronic teeth grinding into and throughout adolescence, and the pressure from clenching your teeth could damage your smile. Chipped and cracked teeth could cause discomfort. You are also more likely to develop tooth decay or even dental infection, which is why if you notice changes to your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dentist in Alton.


Your partner or spouse may let you know that you have bruxism when you sleep. Otherwise, symptoms could include jaw pain and headaches. Treatment options vary. Some dentists bring relief by addressing the oral health issues behind your bruxism. They could correct misalignment with clear aligners, or even replace missing teeth with prosthetics. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable oral splints. So don’t ignore these symptoms, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts private patients.

Nothing feels better than showing off a perfect smile, but as we get older, most of us struggle with tooth loss. Missing teeth could lead to trouble with eating and speaking, and can even lead to an older appearance. To treat tooth loss, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional options, such as dentures or bridges, these are connected to posts placed into your jaw. Crowns or even prosthetics like full and partial dentures are securely attached to these implant posts. These then act as new roots, so your new teeth can last not ten years, but several decades with proper care.


Are you ready to replace missing teeth with dental implants? If you are wondering how much dental implants cost in Alton, you are not alone, but firstly, you should find a Alton dentist who can offer tooth replacement. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dental office who not only can address your tooth loss, but also takes walk-in patients. Same-day appointments are usually available. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network membership plan to decrease the cost of your procedure.


The dentist will carefully examine your smile. Underlying factors may need to be addressed before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer new teeth that look and function like natural dentition!

Missouri is the birthplace of America’s 33rd president, Harry Truman, and home to the nation’s largest beer brewery, Anheuser-Busch. Yet, it is perhaps more well-known for the St. Louis World’s Fair of 1904, which reportedly introduced most of the American foods we know and love today, including hot dogs, ice cream cones, Dr. Pepper, and much more. Today, the Show Me State is home to nearly 6.1 million residents, all of whom deserve to enjoy the benefits of exceptional dental care without having to pay exorbitant out-of-pocket costs. To help them all receive that care, Doctors Network has partnered with dentists across the state to offer patients direct dental plans directly through their dentists’ offices.

Missouri is one of the nation’s friendliest places to raise a family, and boasts a relatively low cost of living coupled with a strong economy. However, dental health care costs can be a burden to families of all backgrounds and demographics, even when they have dental insurance coverage. The goal of Doctors Network is to help dentists across Missouri offer high-quality care directly to their patients, without the exorbitant extra costs that third-party insurance companies often tack on to their plans. With a direct dental plan, you only pay a small monthly fee, which your dentist will determine, to gain access to substantial savings on your dental health care. For instance, checkup and cleaning appointments only cost $25 per visit under the plan, and treatments such as teeth-whitening, dental fillings, crowns, Invisalign®, dental implants, and more will be significantly discounted—often by up to 90%!

The best thing about a direct dental plan is that it is not insurance. Therefore, signing up will not interfere with any existing insurance coverage that you may already have. If you don’t have insurance, then Doctors Network can make managing your family’s dental health care needs more affordable than ever before. To learn more, or to sign up, speak with your dentist about joining Doctors Network the next time you visit. Or, you can browse the Doctors Network website at https://www.doctorsnetwork.com/ to find a Missouri dentist near you who already offers the direct dental plan.

It was so easy to find a doctor and make an appointment. I didn't have to take hours to call different offices and find out who takes my insurance and who doesn't.

I'm a freelancer, so I can't buy insurance easily, so I always ended up paying a lot for doctors' visits. I signed up for a Doctors Network dental plan, and my dental cleanings cost only $25 now. If you don't have dental insurance I highly recommend it.
