Searching for the Best Periodontist in New York City

Most General Dentists provide dental care for the entire mouth. Dentists can help you take care of your teeth and gums. However, when gum problems are beyond their expertise, they may recommend you see a periodontist.

Many patients who have advanced or sever gum problems search for a periodontist on their own. A periodontist specializes in the care of the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Becoming a periodontist requires 2-3 years of additional training after one becomes a dentist.
