The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.
According to the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), a periodontist is “a dentist who specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal diseases and the placement of dental implants.” They have completed three additional years of training after graduating from dental school.
Periodontists treat cases that can range from simple gingivitis to advanced cases of gum disease that can cause bone and tooth loss. They offer a wide range of treatments, such as deep cleaning of the infected root surface to a regenerative procedure like the reversal of bone loss. They are also very well trained in the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants. They also offer cosmetic series such as gum grafts to cover the root services, fix the gummy smiles, frenotomies and biopsies.
To simply state it, Periodontists are like gum gardeners, meaning they concentrate specifically on the gums and the bones that support the teeth.
