Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital images of areas needing restoration and produce the suitable restoration on the spot.
With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to fabricate your crown.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is generally pain-free, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that serious gum disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
