With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply one visit. We will develop 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. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may 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.
Some warning signs that can indicate an issue:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away from the teeth.
- consistent foul 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 numerous aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is important to visit your dentist if you presume 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, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still fixable and can generally be removed 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 end up being more severe with 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 fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive type of gum disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen 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 show that severe gum disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental appointments and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has actually advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
