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 system milling unit right in the office.

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 usually pain-free, you might 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 can signal a problem:
- gums that bleed too quickly.
- red, inflamed, 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 difference in the fit of partial dentures.
There are lots of factors that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking cigarettes, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is necessary to go to your dentist if you think 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 quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can normally 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 become more extreme with time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It typically becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.
Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging form of periodontal disease that takes place in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and might take place 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 show that serious periodontal disease may be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.
Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental experts diagnose will depend upon the kind of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Great dental care in your home is important to help keep gum disease from ending up being more serious or recurring.
