With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply one visit. We will develop 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. Because gum disease is generally painless, 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.
Here are some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore 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 lots of aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you suspect 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 become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily 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 start moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of periodontal disease that happens 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 in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest 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 very important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
