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

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically painless, you may 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 change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that increase the danger of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very 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 become red, inflamed 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 day-to-day flossing and brushing.
Advanced periodontal disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more severe in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might occur 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 research studies show that extreme periodontal disease might be connected with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental practitioners diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
