With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply 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. Because gum disease is typically pain-free, 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 continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have 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 many factors that enhance the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually 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 may end up being more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally becomes worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that extreme gum disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dentists diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
