WHAT IS PERIODONTICS?
Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing on gum and health around teeth.
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, bone reconstruction and health, and in the placement of dental implants.
Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. As specialists in periodontal disease, they are experts in the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. They are also trained in cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Periodontists treat cases ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis. Periodontists offer a wide range of treatments, such as scaling and root planing, root surface debridement, and regenerative procedures. When necessary, periodontists perform surgical procedures for patients with severe gum disease. Additionally, periodontists are trained in the placement, maintenance and repair of dental implants.
