With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply one visit.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is typically 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 indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away 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 numerous aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the quicker 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 easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It usually worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 studies indicate that serious periodontal disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
