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.
Factors to look for when choosing a Periodontist:
- Treats complicated cases of periodontal disease or implants with advanced disease.
- Membership in Dental and Periodontal Societies.
- Uses the latest technology and methods in diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease.
- Has the latest equipment and technology together with a trained export team of assessments and staff.
