With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in simply one visit. We will design 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. Because gum disease is generally pain-free, you may not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Here are some warning signs that can signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated 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 danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 may end up being red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can typically be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday flossing and brushing.
Advanced gum 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 in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen 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 studies show that severe gum disease might be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment techniques that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Great dental care in your home is essential to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
