A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the management of soft tissues in the mouth and the underlying jawbone which supports the teeth. In order to become a periodontist, a dentist must first graduate from an accredited dental school before undertaking an additional three years of study within a periodontology residency training program, in order to qualify as a periodontist. The primary focus of this residency training is on both surgical and non surgical management of periodontal disease and the placement of dental implants.
The periodontist performs a variety of surgical & non-surgical therapies in order to halt the progression of gum disease, improve the esthetics and health of gums for a beautiful smile, and replace missing teeth with dental implants.
The periodontist is mainly concerned with preventing the onset of gum disease (periodontal disease), diagnosing conditions affecting the gums and jawbone, and treating gingivitis, periodontitis and bone loss. Periodontal disease is a progressive condition and the leading cause of tooth loss among adults.
The periodontist is able to treat mild, moderate and severe gum disease by first addressing the bacterial infection at the root of the problem, providing periodontal treatment, then providing information and education on good oral hygiene and the effective cleaning of the teeth.
