dental-implants-or-bridge

As children, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a dedicated in-network dentist in Gilliam, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. 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 diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.


If you live in the Gilliam area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us help. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed 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 think a dentist near you could help. In fact, dentists can often provide a comfortable option to stop nighttime airway obstruction. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that as you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the back of your mouth collapse and interrupt your sleep cycle. Patients actually stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain notices a drop in oxygen. Even as you think you slept well, you could experience daytime drowsiness! But when is it time to talk to Doctors Network and find Gilliam, MO dentists who could offer treatment with oral appliance therapy?


Symptoms of sleep apnea include loud and frequent snoring. Daytime drowsiness, headaches, and irritability could occur too. With no intervention, the condition could impact your immune system and increase the risk of high blood pressure. When you suffer similar signs, consider seeing a dental professional. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep airways open, so you can finally enjoy a good night’s rest.


This week we are celebrating our dentists in Manhattan, NY.

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or one that is misshapen or stained, then you might need a cosmetic consultation. With enameloplasty and dental bonding in Gilliam, MO, these aesthetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a dental care professional in Gilliam, MO who takes new patients and can tackle your oral health concerns. You may not be aware just how much cosmetic dentistry can do in one visit.


Tooth-colored filling repairs aesthetic concerns with composite resin materials. The composite resin, a mix of glass and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in several layers. Gilliam general dentists also use this material for fillings. During dental contouring, the dentist simply sands and buffs the outer tooth enamel or restoration to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


This week we are honoring our Brooklyn dental practices. Utilizing both procedures, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, fixed broken or fractured teeth, mask teeth stains, and close gaps between the teeth.

Periodontal disease is very widespread. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal that half of adults over thirty suffer from the disease. Without treatment, gum disease could reach an advanced stage. Also 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 need to see a professional as soon as possible. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to consult a Gilliam dental provider.


Doctor Network’s search tool can facilitate finding affordable dental providers in Gilliam MO that accept new patients and can offer a treatment plan after examining your smile. If there is a presence of periodontal concerns, then a treatment can be planned. For mild to moderate periodontitis, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every 3 to 4 months could help you avoid tooth loss. For the more advanced stage, there are options like laser dentistry, pocket reduction, gum grafts, and more to protect 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 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 change your appearance. 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 book an online appointment with a dental professional in Gilliam.


Your significant other may let you know you grind your teeth in your sleep. Otherwise, symptoms could include jaw pain 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 prosthetics. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable occlusal splints. So don’t ignore the possible warning signs, 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 tooth loss. 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 dental implants. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as dentures or bridges, 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 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 Gilliam, you are not alone, but first, you should find a Gilliam dentist who can offer tooth replacement. Doctors Network’s search tool can help you with this, connecting you to a dentist who not only can address your concerns about missing teeth, but also accepts patients without dental insurance. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network membership plan to decrease the cost of your procedure.


The dentist will carefully examine your smile. Underlying factors may need to be considered before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer new 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.
