With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will design 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 produce your crown.

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 referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent 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 lots of factors that increase the danger of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the sooner 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 stage, 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 gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 research studies suggest that serious periodontal disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
