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

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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous aspects that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you think 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 become more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that takes place 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 research studies show that extreme gum disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
