Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital images of locations requiring restoration and produce the suitable 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. Since gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent foul 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 many factors that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the faster 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 easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can typically be removed 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies indicate that serious periodontal disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
