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 usually pain-free, you may not know you have it. Also called 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 signal a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have 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 increase the risk of establishing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you presume you have gum disease because the quicker you treat it the better.
The early stage of periodontal 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 reversible and can generally 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 cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may become more extreme in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might happen in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.
Research between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that severe gum disease might be associated with numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment techniques that most dental practitioners diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has actually progressed. Good dental care in your home is important to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more severe or recurring.
