Has your smile been damaged by gum disease? You are not alone. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates at least 50% of adults suffer from a form on the infection. Although it is easily treatable without invasive procedures during its earliest stage, known as gingivitis, symptoms of the infection often go unnoticed. As a result, it progresses in severity. To save your smile, you may need gum surgery in Canton. Dr. J.D. Robison uses the latest advancements in dentistry to restore your gum health.

When the worst happens, you might not immediately think about how to repair or replace what’s lost. Traumatic injuries and emergencies are frightening, painful, and stressful. It’s no surprise that many people in the midst of these issues don’t think they’ll ever smile again, especially those whose smiles are part of the problem. Following severe facial damage, complete tooth loss, or other serious oral health issues, you may need to consider full-mouth reconstruction. These personalized restorative dentistry plans help patients regain the confidence to share their smiles every day.

Having one or more missing teeth is no picnic. Even one missing tooth can make eating and speaking difficult. And then there’s the self-conscious feeling of knowing that when you smile, people might focus on your missing tooth. These troubles can be eliminated with dental implants. Dr. J.D. Robison at Robinson Dental Group has used dental implants to the restore the smiles of many people in and around Canton, MI, and he can do the same for you!
Although you have other choices when it comes to tooth restoration—crown and bridgework, partial and full dentures—the most lifelike among them is a dental implant. The reason is a dental implant replaces not only the crown of the tooth—the portion that’s visible—but also the tooth’s root. As such, an implant affords greater stability as well as the advantage of maintaining jawbone structure, because the implant averts bone deterioration.
What’s involved in the Dental Implant Procedure?
If we determine that a dental implant is the best option for you, then the first step is minor surgery during which Dr. Robison implants a titanium post in the bone beneath the open socket of your missing tooth. If your dental implant will be used to secure a partial or full denture, then he will strategically place more than one implant along your arch. As you heal, the post or posts and your jawbone will fuse together in a process called osseointegration. During this time, Dr. Robison will likely protect the implant with a temporary crown.
Once you have completely healed, you’ll return to our office to have your permanent, custom-crafted porcelain crown affixed to the implant. The result is a solid tooth restoration that looks a functions like a real tooth.

In our last post, we talked about the powerful effect stomach acid can have on teeth. Most cases of decay aren’t caused by stomach acid, though. Instead, when most patients experience tooth decay, it’s the result of bacteria and plaque. Bacteria reacts to many foods—especially foods high in sugar—by producing acid, which leads to more bacteria and more acid, resulting in an environment harmful to teeth.
What’s more, the buildup of bacteria, plaque, and acid also contributes to gum disease. As one of the most common oral health conditions a patient can face, gum disease can have a dramatic effect on one’s oral health (it’s the most common cause of tooth loss in adults)
Thankfully, Dr. John R. Robison and Dr. J.D. Robison offer care for both tooth decay and gum disease. With services like composite fillings and porcelain crowns, plus periodontal therapy, our Canton dental team can provide effective care against both.
We also recommend coming to Robison Dental Group twice a year for checkups and cleanings. Though we offer these great general and restorative services, regular checkups and cleanings are designed to prevent the most common oral health conditions from forming in the first place.
During your visit we can also offer home care tips that will help you protect your smile in between visits to our Canton dental office. We recommend brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. You may also benefit from an antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash.
Has it been more than six months since your last checkup? Call Robison Dental Group for an appointment. We serve patients from Canton, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, Plymouth, and beyond.

Many patients experience chronic headaches without understanding what might be causing them. The surprising truth is that, often, frequent headaches—plus neck, shoulder, and back pain—are caused by a problem with your bite, labeled as TMJ syndrome.
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. Every patient has two, and they’re located near the ear, where your upper jaw and your lower jaw meet. These joints make it easy to open and close your mouth for eating, speaking, yawning, etc. Sometimes, though, stress or an improper bite can cause the joints to dysfunction, exposing nerve endings and resulting in your uncomfortable symptoms.
Have you experienced symptoms that you think could be related to TMJ syndrome? Dr. John R. Robison and Dr. J.D. Robinson or Robison Dental Group can help. Using some of today’s best technology, we can detect your misalignment and treat it, bringing you relief from your symptoms.
Call Robison Dental Group today to schedule an appointment with our Canton dental team. We want to help you find relief from discomfort and enjoy better oral and overall health. We offer effective TMJ therapy to patients from Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, Plymouth, and beyond.

Periodontal disease is a serious dental health concern. Here at Robison Dental Group we’re committed to checking you for signs of this disease at every appointment. This is yet another reason why it’s very important that you see us twice a year for your regular check up.
A common form of periodontal disease is gingivitis, or inflammation of the gums. Gingivitis is caused by a buildup of plaque and tartar left on the teeth. After a while, they will irritate the gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, where the gums start to pull away from the teeth and infected pockets develop.
Drs. John and J.D. Robison provide periodontal therapy to help treat this condition. We have a non-surgical treatment available to help remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Your gums will go from being swollen and bleeding to a nice, healthy pink color. But first, our doctors will meet with you and create a customized treatment plan to get your gums healthy again!
Some general signs that you might have gingivitis include swollen and bleeding gums, and chronic bad breath. If you’re concerned about the health of your gums, give us a call, we’d love to help you!
If you’re interested in learning more about periodontal disease, call our Canton office today! At Robison Dental Group we’re committed to providing quality oral care to our patients from Canton, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland and Plymouth!

When you have dental work done, the care doesn’t stop at the chair. Oftentimes, there are special care instructions, known as post-operative instructions, that you’ll need to follow immediately after the procedure to ensure you don’t undo the good work that was just done.
The helpful post-operative instructions you’ll receive from Robison Dental Group in Canton will help guide you through the recovery period and ensure your teeth remain healthy. Sometime they’re tips about sensations you may be feeling, and sometimes they’re specific tasks, such as brushing your teeth a certain way. Either way, they’re an important resource.
After your treatment, our trained staff will go over any restrictions or special instructions you’ll need to follow. You can also find a list of our post-operative instructions on our website for reference. There you’ll find instructions for numerous procedures, including crown and bridges, deep teeth cleaning, dentures, extractions, fillings, root canals, implants and gum surgery.
It is very important to follow the instructions carefully. After spending the time and effort to undergo these procedures, you don’t want to do something that could potentially negatively impact them.
If you have any additional questions after your treatment, feel free to call our Canton office! Our doctors are here to help with any questions or concerns you may have. At Robison Dental Group we’re committed to providing quality oral care to our patients from Canton, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland and Plymouth!

What Is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?

Your full-mouth reconstruction could include services like:
- Crowns and fillings

Your doctor will work closely with you to create a treatment plan that achieves the results you’ve been looking for.
