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

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 typically pain-free, 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 a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away 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 many factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to visit your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by everyday 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 become more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It normally gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind 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 indicate that serious periodontal disease may be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental appointments and periodontal examinations are essential. The treatment methods that most dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is necessary to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
