Periodontal in St. Peters, MO

Why are your gums so important? Gums are responsible for protecting your teeth and the surrounding structures that keep them in place. Without proper and consistent oral health care, plaque begins to build up, causing harm to your gums and teeth.

When gum disease progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to treat. If you suspect that you may have gum disease, call Spencer Creek Dental Care today. Our doctors have over 35 years of experience restoring patients' oral health!

Stages of Gum Disease
Gum disease has two different stages depending on its severity. The beginning stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. During gingivitis, gums may bleed when brushed or flossed and are often swollen or red. Gingivitis is typically reversible with a good regimen of brushing and flossing when caught early.

The advanced stage of gum disease is called periodontitis, which can cause extreme damage to the gums and surrounding structures. Deep pockets form around teeth when gums pull away due to shrinkage caused by periodontitis; in some cases, teeth may have to be removed due to loose sockets. Treatment of periodontitis is usually needed for restoration.
