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 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 usually painless, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many aspects that increase the danger of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can usually 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might end up being more serious over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur 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 indicate that extreme gum disease might be associated with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
