Gum Disease Treatment

Preventive Dentistry Sioux City IA

The Primary Cause of Lost Teeth
 
Gum disease is a sneaky destroyer of teeth, and it causes more tooth loss than simple decay does. In fact, you might not notice gum disease right up until you lose your teeth. So how do you know if you’re in trouble? Symptoms include bleeding gums when you brush or floss and loose or shifting teeth. Already infected? Don’t worry. If you’ve been informed you need gum surgery, you will be thrilled to discover that it’s now possible to control gum disease with an assortment of non-surgical methods.

Sioux City Orthodontics

Orthodontics Dentist Sioux City IA
Engineering Straighter Teeth with Traditional Orthodontics
Dr. Salmons has been furnishing children and adults with attractive, straight smiles by means of traditional orthodontics for over 25 years. With conventional braces, continual, gentle force in the direction of a desired adjustment modifies the position of teeth over time. Here’s how it happens: a set of brackets is attached to a tooth. These brackets act as handles to which other components are connected to move your tooth in specific directions. A narrow metal wire called an archwire connects to each bracket. Using tension, the archwire exerts tautness on your teeth to shift them into place. Colorful (or clear) elastic bands are stretched to secure the archwires to the brackets. As modifications are required, archwires of assorted diameters are tensioned and ligature elastics are replaced.

Traditional braces permit Dr. Salmons to have more control over how your teeth are brought into alignment. More intricate improvements can be done using this technique. Because this style of braces can’t be easily detached and are continually monitored, there is less chance of difficulties caused by failure to follow the treatment plan accurately. Our patients are thrilled with their beautiful results.

CEREC™ One-Visit Crowns

CEREC Technology Sioux City IANatural-Looking Crowns Made While You Wait
Until recently, having a tooth repaired with a crown took a number of weeks and multiple steps. First, there was the initial visit for the temporary and casting impressions. Then there was a long wait while another lab shaped the permanent crown. Then a second, follow-up visit ensued for your dentist to place the crown. If it didn’t fit correctly, then the entire process began again.

Fortunately, there have been amazing improvements in technology. Instead of a multi-week timeframe, in roughly one hour you can have your new permanent crown placed in your mouth. With CEREC computer-aided design and milling, the fit will be impeccable, the crown will be long-lasting, and the exceptionally natural appearance will simulate the look of an original tooth. Dr. Salmons’ patients love this new method.

The process is both simple and amazing. With a special camera, a detailed image is taken and presented on our computer screen. We then model the
CEREC Dental Crowns Sioux City IArestoration and CEREC produces the crown. Next, we insert and bond the restoration to your tooth. Like our other patients, you will be ecstatic about how easy this is! At last, a great-fitting replacement, an esthetic alternative to silver or plastic fillings, and all without nasty, goopy impressions or an extended wait. Call us today and schedule your new crown.

Mini Dental Implants

Dentures Before & After PhotosNew Breakthrough Provides a Solution for Loose, Slipping Dentures
Has insufficient bone density prevented you from obtaining the dental implants you truly wanted? Are you now wearing dentures that slide, tip, or wander, driving you more than a little crazy? Then you will be thrilled to know of a breakthrough called mini implants. Mini implants firmly anchor your dentures, abolishing slippage and trapped food. They can be installed in a single visit and are virtually painless. Which means you can look forward to eating the same day you obtain them. Additionally, they can often be placed where traditional implants cannot, so you can have all the benefits of mini implants even if you’re not a candidate for regular implants.
