With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will design 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 generally 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the faster 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 easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 suggest that extreme gum disease might be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
