What do Periodontists do?

Periodontists are dentists that specialize in the maintenance, diagnosis, and treatment of the gums and bones in the mouth. Periodontists have extra education and training beyond general dentistry, allowing for their concentrated specialization. Periodontists will also consult on procedures involving the gums, such as the placement of dental implants.

When Is Periodontic Care Needed?

Patients are referred to a periodontist when they have moderate to severe gum disease, such as gingivitis. Periodontists can provide expert diagnosis and treatment options. Periodontists are also the experts who determine whether an individual is suited for dental implants and where to place them. If you are considering dental implants and have gum disease or gum loss, we may recommend you see a periodontist first.
