As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need an awesome private dentist in Shafer, MN who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.


First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, providing lifelike results. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with tooth implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jaw and facial structure following losing a tooth.


If you live in the Shafer‘s proximity and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you have a poor sleeping pattern, you may not assume a dentist near you could help. But in fact, dentists can provide a comfortable and noninvasive solution to help you breathe better while sleeping. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition in which as you sleep, the soft palate and the back of your mouth collapse and interrupt your sleep cycle. Patients with OSA literally 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 should you talk to Doctors Network to find Shafer, MN dentists who provide treatment options?


Sings of OSA include chronic snoring. Daytime headaches, and even moodiness could be factors too. With no treatment, sleep apnea could even strain your immune system and your cardiovascular health. When you notice similar symptoms, consider talking to a dentist. Often, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep airways free of obstruction, so you can finally rest without sleep apnea symptoms.


This week we are celebrating our dentists in Manhattan, NY.

tooth-bonding

If you have a fractured tooth or a tooth that is misshapen or stained, then you could benefit from a cosmetic treatment. With contouring and tooth-color bonding in Shafer, MN, these and other aesthetic imperfections can be corrected in only one sitting. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a dental expert in Shafer, MN who takes new patients and can tackle your oral health concerns. You may not believe just how much tooth-colored fillings can correct in a single visit.


Tooth-colored restoration repairs cosmetic concerns with composite resin materials. The material, a mixture of glass-like and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed onto the prepared area. Shafer dentists also use the same material to treat tooth decay. With tooth contouring, the dentist simply buffs and sands the outer tooth structure to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


This week we are honoring our Brooklyn adult dentists. With these two treatments, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, tackle dental emergencies, mask stains on teeth, and close gaps between the teeth.

Periodontitis is a common oral health issue. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal that half of adults over 30 have gum disease. Without treatment, gum disease could reach an advanced stage. Also known as periodontal disease, this is actually the most common cause of missing teeth. All that to say, when you develop discomfort in the gums, you should seek help as soon as you can. Red and bloody gums are common indicators that you need to consult a Shafer dental office.


Doctors Network can streamline searching for cosmetic dentists in Shafer MN 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 milder cases, a deep cleaning followed by traditional cleanings every three or four months could safeguard the smile. For severe periodontitis stages, there are options like laser dentistry, gum grafts, and more to protect your smile!

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


Your significant other may let you know about your disorder. 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 appliances. So don’t ignore these symptoms, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts new patients.

You can’t put a price on a full smile, but as we age, most of us struggle with tooth loss. Missing teeth could lead to difficulty with eating and speaking, and can even lead to a prematurely aged 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 placed 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 address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you are wondering how much a dental implant costs near Shafer, you are not alone, but first, you should find a Shafer dentist who can offer implant dentistry. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dental office 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 register for a Doctors Network dental plan to reduce the cost of your treatment.


The dentist will carefully examine your smile. Underlying issues such as periodontitis 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!

In the state that brought us the pacemaker and the first successful open heart surgery, most people don’t expect good health to always be easy. However, paying for high-quality dental health care shouldn’t be such a burden as to make it nearly impossible. Though few Minnesota residents don’t have insurance, not all coverage plans are equal, and most can leave patients with out-of-pocket expenses that are higher than they can manage. By teaming up with Doctors Network, dentists across the state can now directly offer their patients dental plans, independent of any third-party insurance company. For a low monthly fee, the cost of which is determined by your dentist, you can enjoy substantial savings on preventive care, cosmetic improvements, tooth restorations, and much more.

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.
