Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of areas needing restoration and produce the proper restoration on the spot.
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 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. Due to the fact that gum disease is typically pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Here are few warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 many factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the earlier 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It typically gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical 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 in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that serious periodontal disease might be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Excellent dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
