dental-implants-or-bridge

As children, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a permanent in-network dentist in Ellisville, MO who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.


First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, restoring smile function. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.


If you live in the Ellisville area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, 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 dental surgeons in Nashville, TN with us this week.

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you suffer from a sleep disorder, you may not assume a dentist near you could help. In fact, dentists can often provide a comfortable and noninvasive 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 interrupt your sleep cycle. Patients actually stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain wakes them. Even as you think you slept well, you could feel tired! But when is it necessary to talk to Doctors Network to find Ellisville, MO dentists who provide treatment options?


Warning signs include snoring on a nightly basis. Daytime headaches, and moodiness could be factors too. Without treatment, the condition could even strain your immune system and increase the risk of high blood pressure. When you suffer similar signs and symptoms, consider finding out your treatment options. Often, oral appliance therapy can be helpful as a CPAP alternative, so you can finally sleep well.


This week we are celebrating our dental care providers near New York, NY.

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or a tooth that is misshapen, then you might need a cosmetic consultation. With enameloplasty and dental bonding in Ellisville, MO, these aesthetic imperfections can be can be addressed with lifelike results. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a adult dentist in Ellisville, MO who accepts new patients and can tackle your oral health concerns. You may not be aware just how much these two treatments can do in only one sitting.


Tooth restoration repairs esthetic concerns with composite resin materials. The material, a mixture of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed onto the prepared area. Ellisville cosmetic dentists also use the same material to treat tooth decay. During tooth contouring, the dentist simply buffs and polishes the outer tooth enamel or restoration to correct issues with a tooth’s balance and shape.


Today we are honoring our Brooklyn general dentists. Using these two treatments, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, tackle dental emergencies, mask teeth stains, and close spaces between teeth.

In childhood, many of us grind our teeth for short periods of time. The issue tends to pass on its own. But for some, bruxism could mean grinding and clenching continue into and throughout adolescence, and the pressure from clenching and grinding your teeth could damage your smile. Cracks, chips, and worn-down structures could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop cavities or even dental abscesses, which is why if you notice changes to your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to book an online appointment with a dental professional in Ellisville.


Your significant other may let you know about your disorder. 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 orthodontics, or even replace missing teeth with dental implants. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable occlusal splints. So don’t ignore the indicators of bruxism, 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 age, most of us struggle with the loss of natural teeth. Missing teeth could lead to trouble with eating and speaking, and can even lead to an older appearance. To treat missing teeth, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as dentures or bridges, these are connected to posts that act as new roots. 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 possibly a lifetime with proper care and attention.


Are you ready to address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you want to know how much dental implants cost near you in Ellisville, you are not alone, but first, you need to find a Ellisville dentist who can offer surgical placement of dental implants. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dental office who not only can address your tooth loss, but also accepts patients without dental insurance. You can even register for a Doctors Network membership plan to decrease the cost of your treatment.


The dentist will carefully examine your smile. Underlying issues such as periodontitis may need to be considered 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.
