With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished 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. Due to the fact that 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 bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- persistent foul breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you suspect 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 become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still fixable and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place 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 studies suggest that severe gum disease may be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
