Everyone’s smile is unique. Many patients have a certain predisposition for developing dental problems, while others have few, if any, dental problems over the course of a lifetime. Wherever you fall on that scale, your mouth will be in good hands with us. Over the years, this Royal Oak dentist has seen just about everything, and we can treat problems like sensitive teeth. As you are about to learn, there are a couple of different reasons why your teeth might be sensitive, and such issues are not always directly related to the teeth themselves. Keep reading to hear more and then be sure to give us a call at 248-712-1522 to request your next visit.
Did you know that your tooth enamel is actually one of the hardest substances in your body? True story! Still, even the enamel can erode or fall victim to dangerous acids and bacteria.
Decay can eat through the enamel and then make its way to the dentin and even your nerves. In this way, common cavities can cause sensitivity to cold or hot sensations. At North Oaks Dental, we have a plan for fixing that and it involves tooth-colored fillings that we can employ to restore your smile back to health. If the damage cannot be restored with a filling, we can also provide crowns in a single day.
Gum disease attacks hard and has been shown to be the #1 cause of tooth loss in American adults. This problem often starts out small with a bit of bleeding or swollen gums, but it can quickly take over the entire mouth. Of course, people with gum infection also have problems with sensitive teeth. Once you are a regular patient of ours, we will check for signs of gum disease during every dental exam. If we find any, we’ll treat it with a deep cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing. If your gums have begun to recede due to advanced gum disease, we can return them to health with a treatment called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Not every Royal Oak dentist is qualified to administer this procedure, but our team has loads of experience in this realm.

At North Oaks Dental, we are committed to providing comfortable and gentle treatments for every patient. We are using technology like 3-D imaging and the PerioLase laser to improve the success of treatments and to minimize recovery times. Plus, we can offer a full array of sedation dentistry options designed to alleviate any anxiety or discomfort.
