Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take accurate digital images of areas needing restoration and produce the suitable restoration on the spot.
With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in just one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to make your crown.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is generally painless, you might 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 can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, tender gums.
- gums that have actually retreated from the teeth.
- consistent foul 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 danger of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually 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 cause 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 begin moving around in your mouth. It usually becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical 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 extreme periodontal disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
