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 health conditions such as low birth weight in babies, diabetes, and heart disease. Because of this, your dentists and staff take Royal Oak gum disease treatment very seriously.Stay on the right path for health Read Transcript
So gum disease treatment is very important to your body. There's normal cleanings that a lot of people get on a regular basis every four to six months, but sometimes if it runs in your family, or if you haven't been to the dentist in a long time, you can develop gum disease. Gum disease is a major contributor to your overall body and health. It creates inflammation in your bone and in your tissue, that inflammation gets into your body, and you're four times, five times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke by having that inflammation in your body.
One treatment that helps that is some laser treatment that we do. It's also routine cleanings every three to four months. This is following getting a deep cleaning done.
Our hygienists, they've got different tools that make it comfortable for you to get the cleaning done if you're really anxious or just are afraid of the feeling, and they'll put some numbing gel, just some gel over there to make it easy for you. We actually have some patients who, not just the gum disease, but they've got a lot of work going on in their mouth, and we put them to sleep, IV sedation. They get their deep cleaning done and their fillings fixed, and then they're just put into a normal path with their hygienist for regular cleanings every four to six months. And our hygienist will do everything she can to help you stay on that right path and maintain it.

A Laser Keeps Your Treatment Comfortable
Our dentists use the latest dental technology, like the PerioLase laser that makes 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.
