If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. An estimated 80% of American adults currently have some form of the disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious damage to the soft tissue and bone that supports the teeth. Sometimes the cause is due to a bad bite or a poorly-contacting restoration requiring primarily an adjustment, and sometimes it is due to hygiene issues or poor interactions among the teeth. Whatever the cause, it is almost always in your best interest to maintain your natural teeth as long as possible, and we can help you in that goal. We remain here to help you establish long-term simple protocols to achieve long-term periodontal health and comfort.

When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to “periodontitis” (which means “inflammation around the tooth”). In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form “pockets” that are infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line.

When tooth structure is lost due to decay, abfractures, or breakage, dental fillings and restorations can restore your smile to optimal esthetics and function and comfort, for the long-run. At ADANW, we take great pride in our esthetic restorations, which not only match your existing coloration and shape of teeth, but which bond to the remaining tooth structure, and provide an extremely strong “welding” of the porcelain to the tooth. This has additional benefits in that the areas where the porcelain meets the tooth, historically the area most likely to re-decay, are now sealed far more solidly than possible before. Closely matched to the color and shape of your surrounding teeth, these dental restorations protect your teeth while providing a beautiful smile.

There is no restorative material that can match the strength, versatility, and beauty of properly designed and contoured bonded porcelains. That is why we, along with the very best dental offices around the world, use these restorations for virtually all our crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and veneers.

Our goal at Advanced Dental Arts NW is to provide dental work that is imperceptible to the bite and imperceivable to the eye. We exchange existing crowns and dental fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. At ADANW, we were one of the very first offices internationally to adapt the CEREC 3D technology, and we have been using it continuously since 2002. Cerec 3D is a computerized system for designing and milling beautiful porcelain crowns and tooth restorations (inlays and onlays) in a single visit.

Dr. Teasdale and his team at Advanced Dental Arts NW work closely with trusted, highly qualified, local periodontists and surgeons who have consistently demonstrated great skill in placing dental implants. Essentially artificial roots, dental implants not only support single teeth, bridges, or removable partial or full dentures, but also help maintain bone height. This is important because, years down the line, bone without a tooth root or implant support system may start to shrink, opening unsightly gaps between teeth and gums and causing lisping and food impaction, and also complicating any later placement of dental implants.

There is nothing really like your natural teeth, properly aligned and in excellent repair, to enable you to look, feel, and function to your very most vibrant best. But what if, through circumstance, time, and attrition, your teeth are no longer realistic to maintain? Are there ways to replace missing teeth that are long-term, comfortable, and functional, and that look and feel natural?
