Periodontics is the dental specialty that focuses exclusively on the inflammatory disease which kills the gums around the teeth and other supporting structures. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and dental implant placement. In these fields, periodontists undergo extensive training, including three additional years of training after dental school. We are experts in the new methods for the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease as specialists in periodontal disease. We are also specialized in periodontal cosmetic procedures.
Periodontists treat cases that range from mild to more severe periodontitis. Periodontists offer a wide range of therapies, including scaling and root planning (cleaning of contaminated root surfaces), root surface debriding (removing damaged tissue), and regenerative procedures (reversal of missing bone and muscle). Periodontists can also carry out surgical procedures for patients with severe gum disease if appropriate. Periodontists are also specialized in dental implant placement, maintenance, and repair.
