dental-implants-or-bridge

As kids, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Gray Summit, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.


First, we will help connect you to a friendly dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.


If you live in the Gray Summit‘s neighborhoods and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!


P. S. Please celebrate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you experience a poor sleeping pattern, you may not realize it, but a dentist could help. But in fact, dentists can often provide a noninvasive and comfortable solution to help you breathe without interruption. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that as you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the tissues around the throat collapse and cause you to stop breathing. People literally stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain notices a drop in oxygen. Even as you assume you slept well, you could experience daytime drowsiness! But when is it time to talk to Doctors Network and find Gray Summit, MO dentists who provide treatment options?


Symptoms of sleep apnea could include snoring on a nightly basis. Daytime drowsiness, and irritability could occur too. With no intervention, sleep apnea could affect your immune system and increase the risk of high blood pressure. When you experience similar signs, consider finding out your treatment options. Often, oral appliance therapy can be used to keep airways open, so you can finally enjoy a good night’s rest.


This week we are honoring our dental practices near Manhattan.

tooth-bonding

If you have a broken tooth or a tooth that is misshapen or stained, then you need a cosmetic treatment. With contouring and dental bonding in Gray Summit, MO, these and other cosmetic imperfections can be corrected in only one sitting. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a dental care professional in Gray Summit, MO who accepts new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may be surprised to discover just how much tooth-colored bondings can correct in one visit.


Composite filling repairs aesthetic concerns with composite resin materials. The material, a mixture of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in the tooth preparation. Gray Summit cosmetic dentists also use this material for fillings. With contouring, the dentist buffs and polishes the outer tooth structure to correct issues with a tooth’s balance and shape.


Today we are honoring our Brooklyn general dentists. With both dental services, these dentists can reshape malformed teeth, repair dental damage, mask unattractive teeth stains, and even close embarrassing spaces between teeth.

Periodontitis is a common oral health issue. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal half of adults over 30 suffer from the disease. Without treatment, gum disease could reach an advanced stage. Known as periodontitis, this is actually the most common cause of adult tooth loss. All that to say, when you develop the symptoms of the disease, you should seek help right away. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to consult a Gray Summit dentist that accepts new patients.


Doctor Network’s search engine can help connect you with gentle dentists in Gray Summit MO that accept new patients and can offer a treatment plan after a dental examination. If there is a presence of inflammation, then a treatment plan can be created. For less severe cases, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every three or four months could help you avoid tooth loss. For the more advanced stage, there are options like gum grafts, 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 be temporary. But for some, bruxism could mean chronic teeth grinding into and throughout adulthood, and the pressure from grinding and clenching your teeth could damage your smile. Cracks, chips, and worn-down structures could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop tooth decay or even infected teeth, which is why if you grind your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dental practice in Gray Summit.


Your partner or spouse 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 dental implants. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable oral appliances. So don’t ignore the possible warning signs, 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 an older appearance. To treat tooth loss, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as dentures or bridges, these are connected to posts inserted into your jaw. 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 address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you are wondering how much dental implants cost in Gray Summit, you are not alone, but first, you need to find a Gray Summit dentist who can offer prosthetic dentistry. Doctors Network’s search tool 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 reduce the cost of your procedure.


The dentist will assess the state of your smile. Underlying issues like gum disease may need to be treated before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer quality prosthetics that look and function like natural teeth!

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.
