Providing his patients with the best dental care he can is his goal, and he ensures that he meets this goal by attending continuing education courses. Dr. Hankins has done over 500 hours of hands-on continuing education training in Sedation Dentistry, Advanced Endodontics, Orthodontics (Invisalign), Smile Design, and Implant Dentistry. He has also earned his IV and Oral moderal sedation licenses through the Arkansas board of dentistry.

dental-implants-or-bridge

As children, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a professional and friendly private dentist in Arrow Point, MO who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.


First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.


If you live in the Arrow Point‘s neighborhoods and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you suffer from a poor sleeping pattern, you may not realize it, but a dentist could help. In fact, dentists can often provide a noninvasive and comfortable solution to help you breathe better while sleeping. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition in which when you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the tissues around the throat collapse and cause you to stop breathing. People literally stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain alerts the body to resume breathing. Even if you believe you slept well, you could feel tired! But when is it necessary to use the search tool on Doctors Network and find Arrow Point, MO dentists who could offer treatment with oral appliance therapy?


Signs and symptoms of sleep apnea could include chronic snoring. Daytime drowsiness, and irritability could occur too. With no treatment, sleep apnea could even strain your immune system and heart health. When you experience similar symptoms, consider seeing a dental professional. Often, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep air passages clear while you sleep, so you can finally sleep well.


This week we are honoring our dental practices near New York, NY.

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or one that is yellow stained, then you might need a cosmetic consultation. With tooth reshaping and tooth-color bonding in Arrow Point, MO, these and other aesthetic imperfections can be corrected in only one sitting. At Doctors Network, we are here to help connect you with a restorative dentist in Arrow Point, MO who accepts new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may be surprised to discover just how much cosmetic dentistry can do in a single sitting.


Tooth restoration repairs esthetic concerns effectively. The bonding material, a mix of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and applied to the teeth. Arrow Point dentists also use this material to repair dental caries. During dental contouring, the dentist buffs and sands the outer tooth structure to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


Today we are celebrating our Brooklyn dental professionals. Between both treatments, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, repair dental damage, mask unattractive teeth stains, and even close embarrassing spaces between teeth.

Nothing feels better than a full smile, but as we age, many of us struggle with the loss of natural teeth. Missing teeth could lead to trouble with eating and speaking, and can even lead to a prematurely aged appearance. To treat tooth loss, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional options, such as dentures or fixed partial dentures, these are connected to posts placed into your jaw. Crowns or even prosthetics like full and partial dentures are locked into 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 address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you are wondering how much a dental implant costs near Arrow Point, you are not alone, but firstly, you should find a Arrow Point dentist who can offer tooth replacement. Doctors Network’s search tool can help you with this, connecting you to a dentist who not only can address your tooth loss, but also accepts 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 assess the state of your smile. Underlying oral health concerns may need to be treated before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer new teeth that look and function like natural ones!

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.
