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 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 normally painless, 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.
Some warning signs that can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender 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 numerous factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you believe you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be eliminated 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 may become more serious 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 fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 show that extreme periodontal disease might be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Great dental care at home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
