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. You no longer need 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 generally 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.
Here are few warning signs that may indicate a problem:
- gums that bleed easily.
- red, swollen, tender gums.
- gums that have retreated from the teeth.
- consistent bad breath or bad taste.
- permanent teeth that are separating or loose.
- any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
- any difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are numerous factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease including smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is essential to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the earlier you treat it the better.
The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may end up being red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, 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 gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can result in the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more severe with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that occurs 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 in between systemic diseases and gum diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies suggest that serious gum disease might be connected with a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Routine dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care at home is necessary to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
