With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in simply one visit.

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 usually 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 bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- persistent bad 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 numerous factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by day-to-day 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 end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may happen 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 research studies suggest that severe gum disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care at home is important to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
