The staff at Dr. Petersen is the best. I never have to wait when I come in, and the procedures are always thorough but fast. They’re a pretty busy place, but they keep things moving, which is nice. I’ve been a patient here since they opened, and I’ve always had an enjoyable experience. I’ve recommended them to all my friends, they’re the best dental office in Leawood, Kansas. A lot of my friends love this place too. The entire staff is kind and really cares about their patients. I’ve had cleanings, new caps, new white fillings, and root canals done here, and everything has always looked great. Thank you, Dr. Petersen.

dental-implants-or-bridge

As kids, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an excellent in-network dentist in Merwin, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.


First, we will connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, restoring smile function. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jawbones and facial structure following tooth loss.


If you live in the Merwin‘s proximity and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. 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 dental surgeons 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 near you could help. In fact, dentists can often provide a non-invasive solution to stop nighttime airway obstruction. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that when you sleep, the soft palate and the tissues around the throat collapse and cause you to stop breathing. Patients with OSA literally stop breathing briefly until the brain wakes them. Even as you assume you slept well, you’re actually sleep deprived! But when is it time to use the search tool on Doctors Network to find Merwin, MO dentists who offer OSA treatment?


Signs and symptoms of OSA could include loud and frequent snoring. Daytime headaches, drowsiness, and irritability could occur too. Without intervention, sleep apnea could even strain your immune system and increase the risk of heart disease. When you suffer similar signs, consider talking to a dentist. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep airways free of obstruction, so you can finally sleep well.


This week we are honoring our dental professionals in Manhattan, NY.

tooth-bonding

If you have a broken tooth or a tooth that is misshapen or stained, then you need a cosmetic consultation. With enameloplasty and tooth-color fillings in Merwin, MO, these and other aesthetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we can help connect you with a general dentist in Merwin, MO who accepts new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may not believe just how much tooth-colored fillings can correct in only one visit.


Dental bonding repairs aesthetic concerns effectively. The bonding material, a blend of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in the tooth preparation. Merwin general dentists also use the same material to treat tooth decay. During contouring, the dentist sands and polishes the outer tooth structure to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


This week we are celebrating our Brooklyn dental practices. Between these two procedures, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, repair dental damage, mask stains on teeth, and even close embarrassing gaps between the teeth.

Periodontal disease is a common oral health issue. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal that fifty percent of adults over thirty require treatment for periodontal concerns. Without treatment, gum disease could reach an advanced stage. Also known as periodontitis, this is actually one of the most common causes of adult tooth loss. All that to say, when you develop discomfort in the gums, you should seek help as soon as you can. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to see a Merwin dentist.


Doctor Network’s search engine can help connect you with dental surgeons in Merwin MO that accept new patients and can offer a treatment plan after a dental examination. If there is any sign of gingivitis or gum disease, then a treatment plan can be created. For less severe cases, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every three to four months could help you avoid tooth loss. For the more advanced stage, there are options like gum grafts, laser dentistry, and more to restore 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 adolescence, and the pressure from clenching and grinding your teeth could lead to major complications. Cracks, chips, and worn-down structures could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop cavities or even infected teeth, which is why if you have bruxism, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dentist in Merwin.


Your significant other may let you know you grind your teeth in your sleep. Otherwise, symptoms could include toothaches 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 possible warning signs, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts patients without dental insurance.

There is no substitute for a full 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 bone loss in the jaw. To treat tooth loss, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as bridges or removable dentures, these are connected to posts inserted into your jaw. Crowns or even prosthetics like bridges are securely attached to these implant posts. These then act as new roots, so your new teeth can last not ten years, but far much longer with proper care.


Are you ready to tackle your tooth loss with dental implants? If you are wondering how much dental implants cost in Merwin, you are not alone, but firstly, you should find a Merwin dentist who can offer surgical placement of dental implants. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dental professional who not only can address your tooth loss, but also takes walk-in patients. You can even register for a Doctors Network membership plan to decrease the cost of your procedure.


The dentist will assess the state of your smile. Underlying factors may need to be treated 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.
