What Is A Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.  Periodontists are often considered the plastic surgeons of dentistry.  If you are looking to improve your smile, a periodontist may be able to help.

The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, which now includes three years of additional education beyond dental school.
