dental-implants-or-bridge

As kids, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need a professional and friendly private dentist in University City, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.


First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.


If you live in the University City‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. 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 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 could help. But in fact, dentists can provide a noninvasive and comfortable option to treat sleep apnea. 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. People actually stop breathing for a few moments until the brain alerts the body to resume breathing. Even if you believe you slept well, you’re actually sleep deprived! But when is it time to use the search tool on Doctors Network to find University City, MO dentists who could offer treatment with oral appliance therapy?


Symptoms of OSA could include snoring on a nightly basis. Daytime headaches, and even trouble with interpersonal relationships could be factors too. With no intervention, the condition could even affect your immune system and heart health. When you notice similar signs and symptoms, consider talking to a dentist. Often, oral appliance therapy can be helpful as a CPAP alternative, so you can finally sleep well.


This week we are honoring our dental professionals in New York.

tooth-bonding

If you have a broken tooth or a tooth that is misshapen or stained, then you could benefit from a cosmetic treatment. With contouring and tooth-color fillings in University City, MO, these cosmetic imperfections can be corrected in only one sitting. At Doctors Network, we aim to help connect you with a adult dentist in University City, MO who takes new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may be surprised to discover just how much these two treatments can correct in a single appointment.


Tooth bonding repairs aesthetic concerns effectively. The material, a mix of glass and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in the tooth preparation. University City cosmetic dentists also use the same material to fill tooth cavities. With contouring, the dentist simply sands the outer tooth enamel or restoration to correct the appearances of cosmetic concerns.


Today we are celebrating our Brooklyn dentists. Utilizing both treatments, these dentists will be able to reshape malformed teeth, tackle dental emergencies, mask stains on teeth, and even close embarrassing gaps between the teeth.

Periodontitis is a common oral health issue. In fact, studies from the Centers for Disease Control reveal about 50% of adults over 30 require treatment for periodontal concerns. Without treatment, gum disease could reach an advanced stage. Known as periodontitis, this is actually one of the most common causes of missing teeth. 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 find a University City family dentist.


Doctor Network’s dentist search tool can streamline searching for walk-in dentists in University City MO that accept new patients and can offer a treatment plan after examining your smile. If there is any sign of periodontal concerns, then a treatment can be planned. For the early stages, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every 3 to 4 months could prevent symptoms. For the later stages of the disease, there are options like laser dentistry, gum grafts, and more to protect 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 the issue persists into and throughout adulthood, and the pressure from grinding and clenching your teeth could lead to major complications. Cracks, chips, and worn-down structures could change your appearance. You’re also more likely to develop cavities or even dental infection, 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 University City.


Your significant other 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 oral health issues behind your bruxism. They could correct misalignment with clear aligners, or even replace missing teeth with dental implants. Many offer treatment with custom and comfortable occlusal splints. 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, many of us struggle with the loss of natural teeth. Missing teeth could lead to difficulty with eating and speaking, and can even lead to bone loss in the jaw. To treat missing teeth, people often turn to dental implants. Unlike traditional prosthetics, such as dentures or bridges, these are connected to posts placed 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 replace missing teeth with dental implants? If you want to know how much a dental implant costs near University City, you are not alone, but first, you should find a University City dentist who can offer tooth replacement. Doctors Network can help you with this, connecting you to a dentist who not only can address your concerns about missing teeth, but also accepts walk-in patients. 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 like gum disease may need to be considered before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer new teeth that look and function like natural teeth!

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.
