dental-implants-or-bridge

As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need an amazing in-network dentist in Mckittrick, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.


First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist near you. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, providing lifelike results. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.


If you live in the Mckittrick area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, 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 experience chronic snoring, you may not realize it, but a dentist near you could help. In fact, dentists can provide a comfortable option to treat sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that when you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the back of your mouth collapse and interrupt your sleep cycle. People literally stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain wakes them. Even if you think you slept well, you’re actually sleep deprived! But when is it necessary to talk to Doctors Network to find Mckittrick, MO dentists who offer OSA treatment?


Warning signs include chronic snoring. Daytime drowsiness, and even moodiness could be factors too. With no treatment, sleep apnea could even affect 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 used to keep airways free of obstruction, so you can finally enjoy a good night’s rest.


This week we are honoring our dental care providers in Manhattan.

tooth-bonding

If you have a broken tooth or a tooth that is yellow stained, then you might need dental treatment. With contouring and tooth-color fillings in Mckittrick, MO, these cosmetic imperfections can be corrected in only one sitting. At Doctors Network, we can help connect you with a dental care professional in Mckittrick, MO who takes new patients and can tackle your oral health concerns. You may be surprised to discover just how much bonding and contouring can do in only one visit.


Dental bonding repairs esthetic concerns with composite resin materials. The composite resin, a blend of glass and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in several layers. Mckittrick dentists also use this material to address cracked or chipped teeth. During dental contouring, the dentist buffs and sands the outer tooth structure to correct your damaged or malformed tooth.


Today we are celebrating our Brooklyn general dentists. Between these two treatments, these dentists can reshape malformed teeth, tackle dental emergencies, mask teeth stains, and even close spaces between the teeth.

Periodontitis impacts millions of adults. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal that fifty percent of adults over 30 require treatment for periodontal concerns. Without treatment, gum disease could impact smile stability. Known as periodontitis, this is actually one of the most common causes of edentulism. All that to say, when you develop the symptoms of the disease, you should seek help right away. Inflamed and receding gums, especially with bleeding, are common indicators that you need to consult a Mckittrick walk in dentist.


Doctors Network can facilitate finding dental offices in Mckittrick MO that accept new patients and can offer a route to a healthier smile after examining your smile. If there is any sign of gingivitis or gum disease, 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 severe periodontitis stages, there are options like laser dentistry, gum grafts, and more to protect your smile!

When we are kids, many of us develop teeth grinding for short periods of time. The issue tends to be temporary. But for some, bruxism could mean grinding and clenching continue into and throughout adolescence, and the pressure from grinding and clenching your teeth could lead to major complications. Chipped teeth and cracks could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop cavities or even dental abscesses, which is why if you grind your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dental practice in Mckittrick.


Your partner or spouse may let you know that you have bruxism when you sleep. 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 braces, or even replace missing teeth with prosthetics. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable occlusal night guards. So don’t ignore the indicators of bruxism, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts new patients.

There is no substitute for an attractive smile, but as we age, most of us struggle with missing teeth. Missing teeth could lead to difficulty with eating and speaking, and can even lead to bone loss in the jaw. To treat missing teeth, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as bridges or removable 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 address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you want to know how much a dental implant costs near you in Mckittrick, you are not alone, but firstly, you need to find a Mckittrick dentist who can offer implant dentistry. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dental professional who not only can address your concerns about missing teeth, but also accepts walk-in patients. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network dental plan to decrease the cost of your treatment.


The dentist will assess the state of your smile. Underlying issues such as periodontitis may need to be treated before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer replacement teeth 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.
