Periodontics is a dedicated dental specialty that focuses on combating inflammatory diseases that can damage gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. A periodontist is a highly skilled dentist who specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal diseases, as well as performing dental implant placements. Their expertise is honed through extensive education, including three additional years of training beyond dental school. As specialists in periodontal disease, they stay up-to-date with the latest techniques for diagnosis and treatment, including cosmetic periodontal procedures.
From mild gingivitis to severe periodontitis, periodontists address a wide range of cases. Their treatments encompass various approaches, such as scaling and root planing to clean infected root surfaces, root surface debridement for removing damaged tissue, and regenerative procedures to restore lost bone and tissue. When necessary, periodontists are also proficient in performing surgical procedures for patients with advanced gum disease. Additionally, they are trained in the precise placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants.
With a periodontist’s specialized care, you can optimize your periodontal health and ensure the longevity of your teeth and supporting structures. Trust in their expertise to receive personalized treatments and the highest standard of care for your periodontal needs.
