Types of Dentists – What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist specialized in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease and problems related to the supporting bone around teeth. Periodontists obtain at least three years of additional training after Dental School in which they focus on regenerative procedures, tooth extractions and the replacement of teeth using dental implants. Periodontists also perform a range of cosmetic procedures that allow them to provide patients with a beautiful, healthy smile.
