Get Your Gums in Great Shape With Royal Oak, MI Gum Disease Treatment

Without healthy gums, you can’t have healthy teeth. Gums are the support structure that keeps your teeth in place. Unhealthy gums have even been linked to conditions such as low birth weight in babies, diabetes, and heart disease. So your dentists and staff take Royal Oak gum disease treatment very seriously.

We 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. It will:

  • Make your gums look and feel better
  • Help keep your teeth intact
  • Eliminate related dental issues such as chronic bad breath
  • Boost your overall health by ridding your mouth of the bacteria that contributes to other problems

Concerned about your gum health? Call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522. If you appreciate our thorough exams and attention to gum health, refer a friend or family member. They’ll get an exam and X-rays for just $39, and you’ll get a $50 credit toward future dental services.

If your gums have begun to recede due to gum disease, Dr. Daboul is certified to return them to health with a graftless treatment called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Dr. Daboul is one of a very small number of doctors certified to perform this procedure. Please note that Dr. Daboul is the only doctor in our practice certified to perform this technique.

Restore Gum Health With Comfortable Laser Treatment

Our dentists use the the PerioLase laser to make scaling and root planing quicker and more comfortable. If your gum disease has advanced to the point where we need to remove inflamed gum tissue, our laser:

  • Effectively targets diseased gum tissue without affecting healthy tissue
  • Works quickly with minimal discomfort
  • Removes the need for cutting or sutures
  • Cauterizes tissue as your dentist works, which makes infection unlikely and promotes faster healing
  • Often reduces your treatment cost

Because the laser makes your treatment so quick and gentle, local anesthesia is likely all you’ll need. But if you’re nervous about the procedure or have sensitive gums and/or teeth, you can get dental sedation. Unlike many general dentists, we offer three types: laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation.

Call our office at 248-712-1522 for comfortable Royal Oak gum disease treatment. You can also make an appointment online. In addition to Royal Oak, North Oaks Dental serves nearby communities like Troy, Huntington Woods, Madison Heights, and Southfield.

Commonly Asked Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and under your gumline. Your hygienist or dentist will use special instruments to carefully get your gums back into shape, or they will use a gentle laser to remove damaged gum tissue and seal your gums back at the same time.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

At our practice, gum disease treatment isn’t painful at all. That’s because we numb your mouth with a gel first so you don’t feel any pain. We can also use a laser. If we need to remove diseased gum tissue as part of your treatment, the laser makes it quick and simple. There’s no need for cutting or stitches. Most patients need no more than numbing beforehand to stay comfortable, but you can also receive sedation if you like.

What are gum disease symptoms?

In its early stages, there are often no noticeable symptoms of gum disease. That’s why it’s important to visit us every six months for a checkup. As gum disease progresses, you may experience red and puffy gums, tenderness or pain, bleeding gums, bad breath, or loose teeth. Left untreated, gum disease can even cause you to lose your teeth.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that build ups around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulates. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.
