With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Since gum disease is typically 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, sore gums.
- gums that have actually pulled away 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 enhance the risk of developing gum disease including smoking cigarettes, 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 might end up being 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 daily 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 extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It usually gets worse slowly, however there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of gum disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Typical features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may 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 indicate that serious periodontal disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental checkups and gum examinations are very important. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep periodontal disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
