As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems eating. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Murphy, MO who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.


First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, providing lifelike results. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jaw and facial structure following tooth loss.


If you live in the Murphy area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. The smile of your dreams is possible, 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 suffer from chronic snoring, you may not assume a dentist could help. But in fact, dentists can often provide a comfortable solution to stop nighttime airway obstruction. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition in which as you sleep, the soft palate and the tissues around the throat collapse and cut off airflow. People literally stop breathing for a few moments until the brain notices a drop in oxygen. Even as you think you slept well, you could feel tired! But when is it time to contact Doctors Network to find Murphy, MO dentists who could offer treatment with oral appliance therapy?


Symptoms of sleep apnea could include loud and frequent snoring. Daytime drowsiness, headaches, and even moodiness could be factors too. With no intervention, OSA could impact your immune system and your cardiovascular health. When you suffer similar symptoms, consider finding out your treatment options. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be helpful as a CPAP alternative, so you can finally sleep comfortably.


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

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or a tooth that is stained, then you might need a cosmetic treatment. With tooth reshaping and dental bonding in Murphy, MO, these and other aesthetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a cosmetic dentist in Murphy, MO who accepts new patients and offers cosmetic dentistry. You may be surprised to discover just how much tooth-colored fillings can do in one sitting.


Tooth restoration repairs aesthetic concerns using a metal-free material. The bonding material, a mix of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in the tooth preparation. Murphy general dentists also use this material for fillings. During tooth contouring, the dentist simply sands and polishes the outer tooth surfaces to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


This week we are honoring our Brooklyn dentists. Using both procedures, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, repair dental damage, mask teeth stains, and close embarrassing gaps between teeth.

All that to say, when you develop discomfort in the gums, you should seek help right away. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to find a Murphy dental clinic.

In childhood, many of us develop teeth grinding for short periods of time. The issue tends to pass on its own. But for some, bruxism could mean grinding and clenching continue into and throughout adulthood, and the pressure from clenching your teeth could damage your smile. Cracks, chips, and worn-down structures could leave your smile vulnerable. You are also more likely to develop tooth decay or even infected teeth, which is why if you have bruxism, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to find a dental practice in Murphy.


Your partner or spouse may let you know you grind your teeth in your sleep. Otherwise, symptoms could include jaw pain and headaches. Treatment options vary. Some dentists bring relief by addressing the causes of teeth grinding. They could correct misalignment with orthodontics, or even replace missing teeth with dental implants. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable oral splints. So don’t ignore the possible warning signs, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts private patients.

Nothing feels better than an attractive smile, but as we age, many of us struggle with the loss of natural teeth. 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 implant-supported prosthetics. Unlike traditional options, such as dentures or bridges, 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 several decades with proper care.


Are you ready to replace missing teeth with dental implants? If you want to know how much dental implants cost near you in Murphy, you are not alone, but firstly, you need to find a Murphy dentist who can offer prosthetic dentistry. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dentist who not only can address your tooth loss, but also works with patients without dental insurance. Same-day appointments are usually available. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network dental plan to decrease the cost of your treatment.


The dentist will carefully examine your smile. Underlying factors may need to be addressed 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.
