As children, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an excellent in-network dentist in Augusta, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.


First, we will help connect you to an awesome dentist near you. After that, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.


If you live in the Augusta‘s neighborhoods and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have gone by since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you suffer from a sleep disorder, you may not think a dentist could help. But in fact, dentists can provide a non-invasive solution to help you breathe better while sleeping. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that when you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the back of your mouth collapse and interrupt your sleep cycle. Patients with OSA literally stop breathing briefly until the brain wakes them. Even if you think you slept well, you’re actually sleep deprived! But when should you talk to Doctors Network to find Augusta, MO dentists who could offer treatment with oral appliance therapy?


Warning signs include snoring on a nightly basis. Daytime drowsiness, headaches, and trouble with interpersonal relationships could be factors too. Without intervention, OSA could even affect your immune system and heart health. When you experience similar symptoms, consider seeing a dental professional. Often, oral appliance therapy can be used to keep air passages clear while you sleep, so you can finally rest without sleep apnea symptoms.


This week we are honoring our dental professionals in Manhattan.

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or one that is misshapen or stained, then you could benefit from a cosmetic treatment. With tooth reshaping and tooth-color fillings in Augusta, MO, these and other aesthetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we are here to help connect you with a restorative dentist in Augusta, MO who takes new patients and can tackle your oral health concerns. You may not believe just how much tooth-colored bondings can correct in only one appointment.


Composite bonding repairs cosmetic concerns with composite resin materials. The composite resin, a mix of glass and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in several layers. Augusta cosmetic dentists also use this material to fill tooth cavities. During contouring, the dentist buffs and sands the outer tooth surfaces to correct your damaged or malformed tooth.


Today we are celebrating our Brooklyn dental professionals. Between both treatments, these dentists can reshape malformed teeth, repair dental damage, mask unattractive teeth stains, and even close embarrassing gaps between the teeth.

Periodontitis is very widespread. In fact, studies from the CDC reveal about 50% of adults over the age of thirty require treatment for periodontal concerns. Without treatment, gum disease could cause uncomfortable symptoms. Also known as periodontitis, this is actually one of the most common causes of adult tooth loss. All that to say, when you develop discomfort in the gums, you should seek help as soon as you can. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to see a Augusta dentist.


Doctor Network’s dentist search tool can facilitate finding affordable dental practices in Augusta MO that accept new patients and can offer a diagnosis after examining your smile. If there is any sign of periodontal concerns, then a treatment can be planned. For mild periodontitis, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every three to four months could safeguard the smile. For the later stages of the disease, there are options like pocket reduction surgery, laser dentistry, and more to restore your gums!

In childhood, many of us grind our teeth for short periods of time. The issue tends to last only a few months. But for some, bruxism could mean the issue persists into and throughout adulthood, and the pressure from clenching your teeth could lead to major complications. Chipped and cracked teeth could leave your smile vulnerable. You’re also more likely to develop cavities or even infected teeth, which is why if you have bruxism, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dental practice in Augusta.


Your significant other may let you know you grind your teeth in your sleep. Otherwise, symptoms could include toothaches and tooth sensitivity. Treatment options vary. Some dentists bring relief by addressing the underlying factors. They could correct misalignment with clear aligners, or even replace missing teeth with dental implants. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable oral appliances. So don’t ignore these symptoms, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts new patients.

Nothing feels better than showing off a perfect smile, but as we get older, many of us struggle with the loss of natural teeth. Missing teeth could lead to difficulty with eating and speaking, and can even lead to bone loss in the jaw. To treat tooth loss, people often turn to implant-supported prosthetics. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as dentures or fixed partial dentures, these are connected to posts inserted into your jaw. Crowns or even prosthetics like bridges are securely attached to these implant posts. These then act as new roots, so your new teeth can last not ten years, but far much longer with proper care.


Are you ready to tackle your tooth loss with dental implants? If you are wondering how much a dental implant costs near you in Augusta, you are not alone, but first, you need to find a Augusta dentist who can offer implant dentistry. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dentist who not only can address your concerns about missing teeth, but also takes walk-in patients. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network membership plan to decrease the cost of your treatment.


The dentist will assess the state of your smile. Underlying factors may need to be addressed before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer replacement teeth that look and function like natural teeth!

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.
