Dr. Steven Hankins believes that being a dentist is the most fulfilling job in the world. He views dentistry as a combination of engineering and art, and works to create foundationally-strong, and cosmetically beautiful results for each of his patients. Providing his patients with the best dental care he can is his goal, and he ensures that he meets this goal by attending continuing education courses. Dr. Hankins has done over 500 hours of hands-on continuing education training in Sedation Dentistry, Advanced Endodontics, Orthodontics (Invisalign), Smile Design, and Implant Dentistry. He has also earned his IV and Oral moderal sedation licenses through the Arkansas board of dentistry.

Dr. Hankins earned his degree in Biology from the University of Arkansas, then went on to earn his doctoral degree in dental surgery at the University of Tennessee. He then became a practicing dentist in 2013, but chose to continue his education by taking part in mentorship training programs in Pediatrics and Advanced Surgery. In 2016, he completed a residency program at the Children's Hospital in Dallas, then worked at the Smile Center. Today, Dr. Hankins is a member of the Arkansas State Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an amazing private dentist in Newtonia, MO who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.


First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.


If you live in the Newtonia area and have lost your natural teeth, 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 complete tooth loss, and even if years have gone by since that happened!


P. S. Please applaud our dental surgeons in Nashville, TN with us this week.

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you have a sleep disorder, you may not realize it, but a dentist could help. But in fact, dentists can provide a noninvasive and comfortable solution to help you breathe without interruption. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that when you sleep, the soft tissues in the throat and the back of your mouth collapse and cause you to stop breathing. Patients actually stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain wakes them. Even if you assume you slept well, you’re actually sleep deprived! But when should you contact Doctors Network to find Newtonia, MO dentists who provide treatment options?


Symptoms of OSA could include chronic snoring. Daytime drowsiness, and irritability could be factors too. With no intervention, OSA could even impact your immune system and increase the risk of high blood pressure. When you suffer similar signs and symptoms, consider seeing a dental professional. Often, oral appliance therapy can be helpful as a CPAP alternative, so you can finally sleep well.

tooth-bonding

If you have a fractured tooth or one that is yellow stained, then you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry. With tooth reshaping and dental bonding in Newtonia, MO, these and other cosmetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a dental care professional in Newtonia, MO who takes new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may not be aware just how much bonding and contouring can do in only one sitting.


Tooth-colored bonding repairs cosmetic concerns using a metal-free material. The bonding material, a mixture of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in the tooth preparation. Newtonia dentists also use this material to treat tooth decay. During contouring, the dentist simply buffs and sands the outer tooth surfaces to correct your damaged or malformed tooth.


This week we are honoring our Brooklyn general dentists. Utilizing these two dental services, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, fixed broken or fractured teeth, mask teeth stains, and even close gaps between the teeth.

Periodontal disease is very widespread. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal half of adults over the age of thirty suffer from the disease. 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 changes in your gums, you should seek help as soon as possible. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to consult a Newtonia walk in dentist.


Doctor Network’s dentist search tool can help connect you with walk-in dentists in Newtonia MO that accept new patients and can offer a diagnosis after examining your smile. If there is any sign of inflammation, then a treatment plan can be created. For less severe cases, a deep cleaning followed by traditional cleanings every three to four months could help you avoid tooth loss. For the more advanced stage, there are options like pocket reduction surgery, laser dentistry, and more to protect your gums!

As children, many of us grind our teeth for short periods of time. The issue tends to be temporary. But for some, bruxism could mean the issue persists into and throughout adulthood, and the pressure from clenching your teeth could damage your smile. Chipped teeth and cracks could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop cavities 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 Newtonia.


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 underlying factors. They could correct misalignment with orthodontics, or even replace missing teeth with prosthetics. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable occlusal splints. So don’t ignore these symptoms, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts private patients.

You can’t put a price on showing off a perfect smile, but as we age, many of us struggle with tooth loss. Missing teeth could lead to difficulty 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 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 possibly a lifetime 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 in Newtonia, you are not alone, but first, you should find a Newtonia dentist who can offer tooth replacement. Doctors Network 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. Same-day appointments are usually available. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network membership 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 replacement 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.
