Same Day Teeth Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of areas needing restoration and produce the appropriate restoration on the spot.
With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer system 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 usually pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are couple warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you think 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 might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can typically be eliminated 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 might end up being more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of 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 periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that serious periodontal disease may be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
