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 keep 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, our Royal Oak, MI dentists and staff take gum disease treatment very seriously.

Dr. Alvin Daboul on Gum Disease Treatment Read Transcript

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

If your gums have begun to recede due to gum disease, we can return them to health with a treatment called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Concerned about your gum health? Call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522.

If you appreciate the thorough nature of our dental exams, including our 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.

Laser Keeps Your Treatment Comfortable

Our dentists use the latest dental technology, like the PerioLase laser which makes scaling and root planing quicker and more comfortable for you. If your gum disease has advanced to the point where we need to remove inflamed gum tissue, a laser:

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

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.

To find out more about gum disease treatment, call our Royal Oak, MI dental office at 248-712-1522. In addition to Royal Oak, North Oaks Dental serves nearby communities like Troy, Huntington Woods, Madison Heights, and Southfield.
