Gum disease causes about 75% of adult tooth loss in this country. Gum (periodontal) disease has been linked to many major diseases. If you have been referred to a periodontist by your family dentist, your pyorrhea (periodontal disease) has possibly advanced beyond the early stages. Delay of treatment can have serious consequences. Our goals are to prevent loss of the teeth and bone and to help you improve your oral health. We urge you to call our office at 314-721-4860 today to schedule your visit with our experienced periodontist. We are eager to improve your smile!
