As kids, we lose our baby teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an amazing private dentist in Benton City, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.


First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jaw and facial structure following losing a tooth.


If you live in the Benton City‘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 edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you experience a poor sleeping pattern, you may not think a dentist could help. In fact, dentists can often provide a noninvasive and comfortable option to stop nighttime airway obstruction. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that when you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the tissues around the throat collapse and cut off airflow. Patients with OSA actually stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain wakes them. Even as you assume you slept well, you could feel tired! But when should you talk to Doctors Network to find Benton City, MO dentists who provide treatment options?


Symptoms of OSA could include snoring on a nightly basis. Daytime drowsiness, headaches, and moodiness could be factors too. Without intervention, sleep apnea could even strain your immune system and increase the risk of high blood pressure. When you experience similar symptoms, consider talking to a dentist. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep airways open, so you can finally enjoy a good night’s rest.

If you have a broken tooth or a tooth that is misshapen or stained, then you need a cosmetic consultation. With contouring and tooth-color fillings in Benton City, MO, these aesthetic imperfections can be can be addressed with lifelike results. At Doctors Network, we can help connect you with a dental care professional in Benton City, MO who accepts new patients and offers cosmetic dentistry. You may not believe just how much tooth-colored fillings can do in only one appointment.


Dental restoration repairs cosmetic concerns with composite resin materials. The material, a mixture of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in the tooth preparation. Benton City cosmetic dentists also use this material to address cracked or chipped teeth. During tooth contouring, the dentist actually buffs and sands the outer tooth structure to correct issues with a tooth’s balance and shape.


This week we are honoring our Brooklyn dental offices. Between both services, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, tackle dental emergencies, mask unattractive teeth stains, and even close embarrassing gaps between the teeth.

Periodontitis is a common oral health issue. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal half of adults over 30 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 edentulism. All that to say, when you develop the symptoms of the disease, you need to see a professional as soon as you can. Inflamed and receding gums, especially with bleeding, are common indicators that you need to consult a Benton City restorative dentist.


Doctor Network’s search engine can help connect you with cosmetic dentists in Benton City MO that accept new patients and can offer a diagnosis after a dental examination. If there is any sign of inflammation, then a treatment plan can be created. For less severe cases, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every 3 to 4 months could prevent symptoms.

When we are kids, many of us clench our teeth for short periods of time. The issue tends to last only a few months. But for some, bruxism could mean chronic teeth grinding into and throughout adolescence, and the pressure from grinding and clenching your teeth could lead to major complications. Chipped and cracked teeth could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop cavities or even dental abscesses, which is why if you grind your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to book an appointment with a dentist in Benton City.


Your significant other may let you know that you have bruxism when you sleep. Otherwise, symptoms could include jaw pain 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 prosthetics. 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.

There is no substitute for a full smile, but as we age, many of us struggle with tooth loss. Missing teeth could lead to trouble with eating and speaking, and can even lead to bone loss in the jaw. To treat missing teeth, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as bridges or removable dentures, these are connected to posts that act as new roots. Crowns or even prosthetics like dentures are locked into 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 and attention.


Are you ready to address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you are wondering how much dental implants cost in Benton City, you are not alone, but first, you should find a Benton City dentist who can offer prosthetic dentistry. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dental office who not only can address your tooth loss, but also takes patients without dental insurance. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network membership plan to decrease the cost of your treatment.


The dentist will take a close look at your smile. Underlying factors may need to be treated before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer quality prosthetics 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.
