Periodontics

Stevensville General Dentistry of Teeth & Gums

Periodontics is a specialty in dentistry that focuses on your gums, the supporting tissue around your teeth, and accompanying conditions. At Thompson Creek Dental, we offer treatment of common to severe gum disease conditions such as plaque, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Gum disease is subtle, slowly escalating the signs of aging by elongating the look of teeth with gradual diminishing gums that can also leave space between your teeth and gum tissue.

Some common signs of gum disease:

  • Tooth movement or loss
  • Infection or increased sensitivity
  • Receding gum line or gum depression
  • Inflammation or discoloration of tissue
