With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will create and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer system milling unit right in the office.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is typically 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 may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent foul 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 lots of factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically 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 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 destructive type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include 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 indicate that severe periodontal disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
