What Is a Periodontist?
A Periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and also places and maintains dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school.
By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, they can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
