With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just 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. Due to the fact that gum disease is typically painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that can indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that enhance the danger of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, 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 end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can typically 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens 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 studies show that extreme gum disease may be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care at home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
