With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in just one visit. We will develop 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 usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also called 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, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have 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 factors that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you presume 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 stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 become more extreme 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 destructive type 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 in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that severe periodontal disease may be connected with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are very important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
