Same Day Tooth Restorations
CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital images of areas needing restoration and produce the appropriate restoration on the spot.
With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in just one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer system milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to fabricate your crown.

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 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 constantly forming on our teeth.
Some warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, sore gums.
- gums that have 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 change in the fit of partial dentures.
There are many factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 may become more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that serious gum disease may be associated with multiple other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are crucial. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is vital to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
