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 have 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. Due to the fact that 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated 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 increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the quicker 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 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 periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place 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 show that serious gum disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
