Dr. Jeffrey Turner treats each of his patients like members of the family and strives to give them all a positive dental experience when they come to his office. His philosophy as a dentist is to educate his patients whenever he can on the importance of good oral health and the details of their unique dental situations. He also enjoys joking around and keeping the mood in the office light—he has been known to tell a few dad jokes every now and then.

Dr. Turner earned his dental degree from the IU School of Dentistry. He joined the Air Force soon after and was stationed at Bolling Air Force Base. He has been a practicing dentist since 1990.

dental-implants-or-bridge

As children, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a new in-network dentist in St Joseph, MI who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.


First, we will connect you to a dentist near you. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jawbones and facial structure following tooth loss.


If you live in the St Joseph‘s proximity and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you suffer from a sleep disorder, you may not realize it, but a dentist could help. But in fact, dentists can often provide a non-invasive option to help you breathe better while sleeping. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition in which when you sleep, the soft palate and the back of your mouth collapse and interrupt your sleep cycle. People actually stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain notices a drop in oxygen. Even if you assume you slept well, you’re actually sleep deprived! But when should you talk to Doctors Network to find St Joseph, MI dentists who provide treatment options?


Sings of sleep apnea include loud and frequent snoring. Daytime drowsiness, and even irritability could be factors too. With no treatment, the condition could even strain your immune system and heart health. When you notice similar symptoms, consider talking to a dentist. Often, oral appliance therapy can be helpful to keep air passages clear while you sleep, so you can finally rest without sleep apnea symptoms.


This week we are celebrating our dental care providers near NYC.

tooth-bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or one that is yellow stained, then you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry. With contouring and tooth-color bonding in St Joseph, MI, these aesthetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we are here to help connect you with a cosmetic dentist in St Joseph, MI who takes new patients and can tackle your oral health concerns. You may be surprised to discover just how much these two treatments can correct in one sitting.


Tooth bonding repairs cosmetic concerns with composite resin materials. The composite resin, a mixture of glass and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed onto the prepared area. St Joseph general dentists also use this material for fillings. During dental contouring, the dentist simply sands the outer tooth enamel or restoration to correct your damaged or malformed tooth.


Today we are celebrating our Brooklyn cosmetic dentists. Using both dental services, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, repair dental damage, mask stains on teeth, and close spaces between teeth.

Periodontitis is very widespread. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal 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 one of the most common causes of adult tooth loss. All that to say, when you develop the symptoms of the disease, you need to see a professional right away. Sore, red gums that bleed easily, along with receding tissues, are common indicators that you need to consult a St Joseph walk-in dentist.


Doctors Network can help connect you with dental offices in St Joseph MI that accept new patients and can offer a diagnosis after a dental examination. If there is any sign of inflammation, then a treatment can be planned. For mild periodontitis, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every three or four months could safeguard the smile. For the more advanced stage, there are options like laser dentistry, gum grafts, and more to protect your smile!

In childhood, 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 grinding and clenching your teeth could injure your teeth. Cracks, chips, and worn-down structures could cause discomfort. You are also more likely to develop cavities or even infected teeth, which is why if you grind your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to book an online appointment with a dental professional in St Joseph.


Your significant other 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 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 occlusal night guards. So don’t ignore these symptoms, talk to us about finding the right dentist in your area who accepts new patients.

Nothing feels better than showing off a perfect smile, but as we age, many of us struggle with tooth loss. Missing teeth could lead to trouble with eating and speaking, and can even lead to a prematurely aged appearance. To treat missing teeth, people often turn to implants and fixed dentures. Unlike traditional options, such as dentures or fixed partial dentures, these are connected to posts inserted into your jaw. Crowns or even prosthetics like dentures are locked into these implant posts. These then act as new roots, so your new teeth can last not ten years, but several decades with proper care and attention.


Are you ready to address unsightly gaps with dental implants? If you are wondering how much a dental implant costs in St Joseph, you are not alone, but firstly, you need to find a St Joseph dentist who can offer surgical placement of dental implants. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dental office who not only can address your concerns about missing teeth, but also takes walk-in patients. 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 issues such as periodontitis may need to be considered before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer replacement teeth that look and function like natural ones!

Michigan may be best known as home to Motor City—the common nickname for Detroit, which was the center of America’s automotive boom. However, it is also known for being the only state to touch all four of the Great Lakes, giving the state 3,100 miles of freshwater coastline—more than any other state or province in the world. Michigan is home to over 9.9 million people, and helping them all maintain a healthy quality of life has always been a priority for dental health experts who call the state home. With Doctors Network, dentists can now offer patients the high-quality professional dental care they deserve at drastically reduced prices, making it easier for families in Michigan to take good care of their smiles.

Staying ahead of the curve has always been Michigan’s thing. In today’s world of rising dental health care costs, that means finding ways to keep the quality of care high while minimizing costs for average families. Doctors Network helps local dentists solve that problem by offering direct dental plans to all of their patients. Unlike dental insurance, a direct dental plan gives you access to substantial discounts on every treatment that your dentist offers. This includes everything from preventive checkups and cleanings that only cost $25 per visit to more involved cosmetic, restorative, and prosthetic procedures that are discounted by up to 90%. For the seven percent of patients in Michigan who do not have insurance, a direct dental plan can be the best way to make dental care more affordable for the whole family. For patients who already have insurance, the plan can help ensure that they are not left with exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses, even for elective procedures like porcelain veneers, Invisalign® clear aligners, dental implants, and 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.
