With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will create 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. Since gum disease is normally 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.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away 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 many aspects that enhance the danger of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you suspect 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, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more serious with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging kind of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might 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 show that extreme gum disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is important to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
