Invisalign can correct many issues, including overbites and underbites. However, sometimes Invisalign isn’t the best option for more complicated problems. During a free consultation, your orthodontist at North Oaks Dental will examine you and determine the best solution for your smile. If he recommends Invisalign, you can take advantage of a special payment plan. If he suggests braces instead, you can choose either conventional braces or the more discreet clear ceramic braces.

Yes, our dentists and compassionate staff have lots of experience in helping patients overcome their anxiety. We’ll make you comfortable in our private care rooms and take the time to answer all of your questions and explain every detail of your procedure. If you’d like a distraction, you can use headphones to listen to music while we work. We also offer three kinds of safe dental sedation, one of which will provide the right level of relaxation for you.

Our Zoom teeth whitening system removes many stains from teeth and makes them look brighter than drugstore whitening products can. For a longer-lasting solution that can cover stains that don’t respond well to whitening, you can choose tooth bonding or durable dental veneers.

Having bleeding or tender gums is common but not normal. These problems are the first sign of gum disease, a serious problem that can lead to rampant tooth loss. A majority of people will be struck with gum disease, which also has been linked to health conditions like diabetes and heart disease.

At North Oaks Dental, we treat gum disease with gentle therapies. We can identify this problem early before it takes over the mouth.

Dentures are just one way to replace missing teeth. Removable dentures are lifelike, but function can be a problem. We use dental implants to replace single missing teeth or to stabilize your dentures. Implants give you function nearly equal to that of your natural teeth, and our implants can last a lifetime.

Yes, there is a good chance you can! That’s because our dentists can improve your bone strength by performing a bone graft. Or we can possibly use mini dental implants instead of full-size ones. Mini implants work well in many instances, including stabilizing dentures.

Many people worry about getting a shot at the dentist, which is understandable. For certain procedures, we may gently administer a local anesthetic (given as a quick shot) to numb a specific area where your dentist will be working. Your absolute comfort is our goal, so we offer sedation options if needed, too.

Yes, we happily accept most dental insurance. We’re a participating provider with Delta Dental Premier and Blue Cross Blue Shield, and we accept payment from most major dental insurance plans. To simplify your visit, we’ll file claims for you and accept assignment of benefits.

We offer convenient Saturday appointments, plus we’re open extended hours during the week. We’re open as late as 6 p.m., and we have Saturday hours as well. As always, if you have a dental emergency, we’ll get you in the same day! Just call our office at 248-220-7021.

Yes, we offer Invisalign® orthodontics as well as traditional orthodontics. Invisalign® is a great option to discreetly straighten your teeth and improve your smile. The appliances are clear, wireless, and metal-free. We have a board-certified orthodontist on staff, plus we offer free orthodontics consultations.

Your dentist at North Oaks Dental can use veneers in a variety of ways to correct smile flaws such as chips, cracks, stains, small gaps, worn teeth, and misshapen teeth. These thin porcelain shells can be custom-fitted to the front of your teeth to instantly improve your smile. Plus, you can usually complete your veneers treatment in only two visits.
