dental-implants-or-bridge

As kids, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. The advanced stage of gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Valley Park, 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 friendly dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jaw and facial structure following losing a tooth.


If you live in the Valley Park‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have gone by since that happened!


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

sleep-apnea-treatment

When you experience a sleep disorder, you may not think a dentist near you could help. But in fact, dentists can provide a comfortable and noninvasive option to help you breathe without interruption. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) means that as you sleep, the soft palate and the tissues around the throat collapse and cause you to stop breathing. People literally stop breathing briefly until the brain notices a drop in oxygen. Even as you believe you slept well, you’re actually sleep deprived! But when is it time to use the search tool on Doctors Network and find Valley Park, MO dentists who offer OSA treatment?


Symptoms of sleep apnea could include loud and frequent snoring. Daytime drowsiness, and even irritability could occur too. Without intervention, the condition could even affect your immune system and increase the risk of high blood pressure. When you experience similar signs, consider seeing a dental professional. Sometimes, oral appliance therapy can be used to keep airways free of obstruction, so you can finally sleep well.


This week we are honoring our dental care providers in Manhattan.

tooth-bonding

If you have a broken tooth or one that is stained, then you might need a cosmetic treatment. With tooth reshaping and tooth-color bonding in Valley Park, MO, these cosmetic imperfections can be treated in one visit. At Doctors Network, we can help connect you with a general dentist in Valley Park, MO who accepts new patients and provides the comprehensive treatments you need. You may be surprised to discover just how much cosmetic dentistry can correct in one appointment.


Tooth-colored bonding repairs aesthetic concerns effectively. The composite resin, a blend of glass and acrylic particles, is shaded and placed in the tooth preparation. Valley Park general dentists also use this material to repair dental caries. During dental contouring, the dentist actually buffs and sands the outer tooth enamel or restoration to correct issues with a tooth’s balance and shape.


Today we are honoring our Brooklyn cosmetic dentists. Between these two services, these dentists can reshape malformed teeth, tackle dental emergencies, mask stains on teeth, and even close spaces between the teeth.

Periodontal disease is very widespread. In fact, studies from the CDC reveal that about 50% of adults over the age of thirty have gum disease. Without treatment, gum disease could impact smile stability. Known as periodontitis, this is actually the most common cause of edentulism. All that to say, when you develop changes in your gums, you need to see a professional right away. Red and bloody gums are common indicators that you need to see a Valley Park dentist that accepts new patients.


Doctor Network’s search engine can streamline searching for walk-in dentists in Valley Park MO that accept new patients and can offer a treatment plan after examining your smile. If there is a presence of gingivitis or gum disease, then a treatment can be planned. For less severe cases, a scaling and root planing followed by traditional cleanings every 3 to 4 months could help you avoid tooth loss. For the more advanced stage, there are options like laser dentistry, pocket reduction, gum grafts, and more to restore your gums!

When we are kids, many of us grind our teeth for short periods of time. The issue tends to last only a few months. But for some, bruxism could mean grinding and clenching continue into and throughout adulthood, and the pressure from clenching your teeth could injure your teeth. Chipped teeth and cracks could cause discomfort. You’re also more likely to develop tooth decay or even dental abscesses, which is why if you notice changes to your teeth, you should consider using Doctors Network’s search tool to book an online appointment with a dental professional in Valley Park.


Your significant other may let you know about your disorder. Otherwise, symptoms could include toothaches and tooth sensitivity. Treatment options vary. Some dentists bring relief by addressing the causes of teeth grinding. They could correct misalignment with clear aligners, or even replace missing teeth with prosthetics. 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 showing off a perfect smile, but as we get older, most of us struggle with the loss of natural teeth. Missing teeth could lead to difficulty 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 prosthetics, such as bridges or removable dentures, these are connected to posts that act as new roots. Crowns or even prosthetics like full and partial 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.


Are you ready to tackle your tooth loss with dental implants? If you are wondering how much dental implants cost near Valley Park, you are not alone, but first, you need to find a Valley Park dentist who can offer implant dentistry. Doctors Network’s search tool can help you with this, connecting you to a dental professional who not only can address your concerns about missing teeth, but also takes patients without dental insurance. You can even sign up for a Doctors Network dental plan to decrease the cost of your procedure.


The dentist will take a close look at your smile. Underlying factors may need to be considered before moving forward. But once completed, your dental implants will offer quality prosthetics 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.
