Same Day Teeth Restorations
CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take precise digital images of areas requiring restoration and produce the appropriate restoration on the spot.
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. You no longer need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to produce your crown.

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 generally 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.
Here are couple warning signs that may signal an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to visit your dentist if you suspect 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 might end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally 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 lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that takes place 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 in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies show that severe periodontal disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Good dental care at home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
