With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in just one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer 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 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have retreated 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can generally 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 result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 show that serious periodontal disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
