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 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. Since gum disease is generally pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, 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 change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you presume 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 easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that extreme gum disease might be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments 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 advanced. Great dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
