dental-implants-or-bridge

As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a professional and friendly private dentist in Lake Timberline, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.


First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist near you. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild 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 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 supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.


If you live in the Lake Timberline‘s proximity and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you have chronic snoring, you may not think a dentist near you could help. In fact, dentists can often provide a noninvasive and comfortable option to help you breathe better while sleeping. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that as you sleep, the soft palate and the back of your mouth collapse and cause you to stop breathing. People actually stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain alerts the body to resume breathing. Even if you believe you slept well, you could feel tired! But when is it necessary to talk to Doctors Network and find Lake Timberline, MO dentists who offer OSA treatment?


Signs and symptoms of sleep apnea include snoring on a nightly basis. Daytime drowsiness, and moodiness could be factors too. With no treatment, the condition could strain your immune system and increase the risk of heart disease. When you experience similar signs, consider seeing a dental professional. Often, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep airways open, so you can finally sleep comfortably.


This week we are honoring our dental professionals near New York, NY.

tooth-bonding

If you have a fractured tooth or one that is yellow stained, then you need dental treatment. With enameloplasty and tooth-color bonding in Lake Timberline, MO, these aesthetic imperfections can be can be addressed with lifelike results. At Doctors Network, we are here to help connect you with a general dentist in Lake Timberline, MO who takes new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may be surprised to discover just how much bonding and contouring can do in a single visit.


Dental restoration repairs esthetic concerns with composite resin materials. The bonding material, a blend of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in several layers. Lake Timberline cosmetic dentists also use this material to fill tooth cavities. With tooth contouring, the dentist sands the outer tooth enamel or restoration to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


This week we are celebrating our Brooklyn general dentists. Using both dental services, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, fixed broken or fractured teeth, mask stains on teeth, and even close embarrassing gaps between teeth.

As children, many of us develop teeth grinding for short periods of time. The issue tends to last only a few months. But for some, bruxism could mean chronic teeth grinding into and throughout adolescence, and the pressure from clenching and grinding your teeth could injure your teeth. 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 notice changes to your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dentist in Lake Timberline.


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 oral health issues behind your bruxism. They could correct misalignment with braces, or even replace missing teeth with prosthetics. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable oral splints. So don’t ignore the indicators of bruxism, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts new patients.

You can’t put a price on an attractive smile, but as we age, most of us struggle with missing teeth. 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 dental implants. 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 full and partial 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 and attention.


Are you ready to address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you want to know how much a dental implant costs near Lake Timberline, you are not alone, but firstly, you should find a Lake Timberline dentist who can offer implant dentistry. Doctors Network’s search tool can help you with this, connecting you to a dental professional 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 such as periodontitis may need to be considered before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer new teeth 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.
