Dr. Steven Hankins believes that being a dentist is the most fulfilling job in the world. He views dentistry as a combination of engineering and art, and works to create foundationally-strong, and cosmetically beautiful results for each of his patients. 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.

Dr. Hankins earned his degree in Biology from the University of Arkansas, then went on to earn his doctoral degree in dental surgery at the University of Tennessee. He then became a practicing dentist in 2013, but chose to continue his education by taking part in mentorship training programs in Pediatrics and Advanced Surgery. In 2016, he completed a residency program at the Children's Hospital in Dallas, then worked at the Smile Center. Today, Dr. Hankins is a member of the Arkansas State Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

dental-implants-or-bridge

As kids, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Eagle Rock, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.


First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist in your area. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.


If you live in the Eagle Rock‘s proximity and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you experience a poor sleeping pattern, you may not assume a dentist near you could help. But in fact, dentists can provide a comfortable solution to help you breathe without interruption. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that when you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the back of your mouth collapse and cause you to stop breathing. People literally stop breathing briefly until the brain notices a drop in oxygen. Even as you think you slept well, you could feel tired! But when is it time to contact Doctors Network to find Eagle Rock, MO dentists who provide treatment options?


Symptoms of sleep apnea could include loud and frequent snoring. Daytime drowsiness, headaches, and trouble with interpersonal relationships could be factors too. With no intervention, OSA could even impact your immune system and increase the risk of heart disease. When you experience similar signs and symptoms, consider finding out your treatment options. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep airways free of obstruction, so you can finally rest without sleep apnea symptoms.

tooth-bonding

If you have a broken tooth or one that is yellow stained, then you need cosmetic dentistry. With tooth reshaping and tooth-color bonding in Eagle Rock, MO, these and other cosmetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we are here to help connect you with a restorative dentist in Eagle Rock, MO who takes new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may be surprised to discover just how much these two treatments can correct in one visit.


Composite restoration repairs aesthetic concerns using a metal-free material. The composite resin, a mixture of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and applied to the teeth. Eagle Rock general dentists also use this material for fillings. With contouring, the dentist sands and polishes the outer tooth surfaces to correct your damaged or malformed tooth.


This week we are celebrating our Brooklyn dental experts. Between both services, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, tackle dental emergencies, mask stains on teeth, and close embarrassing spaces between teeth.

Periodontal disease is a common oral health issue. In fact, studies from the CDC reveal that half of adults over the age of thirty have gum disease. Without treatment, gum disease could cause uncomfortable symptoms. Known as periodontitis, this is actually one of the most common causes of adult tooth loss. All that to say, when you develop changes in your gums, you need to see a professional right away. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to see a Eagle Rock dental clinic.


Doctor Network’s search engine can facilitate finding walk in dentists in Eagle Rock MO that accept new patients and can offer a treatment plan after examining your smile. If there is any sign of inflammation, then a treatment plan can be created. For the early stages, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every three to four months could help you avoid tooth loss. For the later stages of the disease, there are options like pocket reduction surgery, laser dentistry, and more to protect your gums!

When we are kids, many of us clench our teeth for short periods of time. The issue tends to pass on its own. But for some, bruxism could mean chronic teeth grinding into and throughout adulthood, and the pressure from clenching your teeth could injure your teeth. Chipped and cracked teeth could change your appearance. You’re also more likely to develop cavities or even infected teeth, which is why if you notice changes to your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to book an appointment with a dentist in Eagle Rock.


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 causes of teeth grinding. They could correct misalignment with braces, or even replace missing teeth with dental implants. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable oral splints. So don’t ignore the possible warning signs, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts private patients.

There is no substitute for a full smile, but as we get older, most of us struggle with tooth loss. Missing teeth could lead to difficulty with eating and speaking, and can even lead to a prematurely aged appearance. To treat tooth loss, people often turn to dental implants. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as dentures or fixed partial dentures, these are connected to posts inserted 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 tackle your tooth loss with dental implants? If you want to know how much dental implants cost near you in Eagle Rock, you are not alone, but firstly, you need to find a Eagle Rock 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 accepts walk-in patients. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network membership plan to reduce the cost of your treatment.


The dentist will assess the state of your smile. Underlying issues like gum disease may need to be addressed before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer replacement 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.
