Same Day Teeth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital imagery of locations needing restoration and produce the suitable restoration on the spot.
With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in simply one visit. We will create 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 usually painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that severe periodontal disease might be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
