As children, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need an amazing private dentist in Frontenac, MN who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.


First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, providing lifelike results. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following missing a tooth.


If you live in the Frontenac area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!


P. S. Please celebrate our dental professionals 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 non-invasive option to help you breathe without interruption. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that as you sleep, the soft palate and the back of your mouth collapse and cut off airflow. People literally stop breathing for a few moments until the brain wakes them. Even as you assume you slept well, you could experience daytime drowsiness! But when is it time to use the search tool on Doctors Network and find Frontenac, MN dentists who could offer treatment with oral appliance therapy?


Signs and symptoms of sleep apnea include snoring on a nightly basis. Daytime drowsiness, and even irritability could occur too. Without treatment, OSA could even affect your immune system and increase the risk of heart disease. When you experience similar symptoms, consider finding out your treatment options. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be used to keep air passages clear while you sleep, so you can finally sleep well.


This week we are honoring our dental care providers in New York.

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or one that is misshapen or stained, then you could benefit from a cosmetic consultation. With enameloplasty and tooth-color bonding in Frontenac, MN, these cosmetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we are here to help connect you with a general dentist in Frontenac, MN who takes new patients and offers cosmetic dentistry. You may be surprised to discover just how much bonding and contouring can do in only one appointment.


Composite filling repairs aesthetic concerns effectively. The material, a mix of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed onto the prepared area. Frontenac cosmetic dentists also use this material for fillings. During dental contouring, the dentist actually sands and buffs the outer tooth surfaces to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


Today we are celebrating our Brooklyn local dentists. Using these two procedures, these dentists can reshape malformed teeth, fixed broken or fractured teeth, mask teeth stains, and even close spaces between the teeth.

Periodontitis is very widespread. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal that half of adults over thirty have gum disease. Without treatment, gum disease could reach an advanced stage. Known as periodontitis, this is actually the most common cause of edentulism. All that to say, when you develop the symptoms of the disease, you should seek help right away. Red and bloody gums are common indicators that you need to find a Frontenac walk in dentist.


Doctor Network’s search tool can help connect you with family dentists in Frontenac MN that accept new patients and can offer a treatment plan after a dental examination. If there is a presence of periodontal concerns, then a treatment plan can be created. For mild periodontitis, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every 3 to 4 months could prevent symptoms. For the more advanced stage, there are options like gum grafts, laser dentistry, and more to restore your smile!

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 the issue persists into and throughout adolescence, and the pressure from clenching and grinding your teeth could injure your teeth. Cracks, chips, and worn-down structures could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop tooth decay or even dental abscesses, which is why if you grind your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dentist in Frontenac.


Your significant other may let you know about your disorder. Otherwise, symptoms could include jaw pain and headaches. 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 occlusal night guards. So don’t ignore the possible warning signs, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts patients without dental insurance.

Nothing feels better than showing off a perfect smile, but as we age, most of us struggle with tooth loss. Missing teeth could lead to trouble with eating and speaking, and can even lead to a prematurely aged appearance. To treat missing teeth, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as dentures or fixed partial dentures, these are connected to posts that act as new roots. Crowns or even prosthetics like dentures are securely attached to 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 replace missing teeth with dental implants? If you want to know how much dental implants cost in Frontenac, you are not alone, but firstly, you should find a Frontenac dentist who can offer surgical placement of dental implants. 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 takes walk-in patients. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network dental plan to decrease the cost of your procedure.


The dentist will take a close look at your smile. Underlying issues such as periodontitis may need to be addressed before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer new teeth that look and function like natural teeth!

In the state that brought us the pacemaker and the first successful open heart surgery, most people don’t expect good health to always be easy. However, paying for high-quality dental health care shouldn’t be such a burden as to make it nearly impossible. Though few Minnesota residents don’t have insurance, not all coverage plans are equal, and most can leave patients with out-of-pocket expenses that are higher than they can manage. By teaming up with Doctors Network, dentists across the state can now directly offer their patients dental plans, independent of any third-party insurance company. For a low monthly fee, the cost of which is determined by your dentist, you can enjoy substantial savings on preventive care, cosmetic improvements, tooth restorations, and much more.

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.
