With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is typically pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, inflamed, sore gums.
- gums that have actually retreated 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 numerous factors that enhance the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to visit your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might become red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal 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 start moving around in your mouth. It generally gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that extreme gum disease might be related to multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is vital to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
