Gum Disease Treatment

Your gums are the foundation of your dental health. Gum disease which includes periodontitis, gum recession and other problems is the most common cause of tooth loss. This is why we focus on the health of your gums prior to any cosmetic procedure.

At the Birmingham Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Milan and his team offer conservative non-invasive gum procedures to restore both the health and cosmetics of your gums. Preventing, treating and monitoring gum disease is essential not only for your dental health but your general health as well.

Dr. Milan was the one of the first Dentists in Michigan to offer the Pinhole gum technique which treats gum recession without incisions or sutures. It is a technique that can literally be done during you lunch break and the results can be dramatic. Read more.

Your smile is an important part of your appearance. And though the size, shape and color of the teeth are most frequently associated oral cosmetics, the gums play an essential role too. When gingival tissues begin to recess, your teeth may look oversized and uneven. Soft tissue grafting is often used to restore the gum line using a bio-compatible grafting material that is attached to the gums to protect the tooth surface. The resulting augmentation produces restored dental symmetry and eliminates a ‘toothy’ smile.

that gum recession can be more than just a cosmetic problem? The enamel below the gum line is more prone to decay and tooth sensitivity when exposed. A receding gum line can put your long-term dental health at risk – potentially causing cavities, bone loss, additional gum recession, and even tooth loss.
