What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dental health professional who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infections and diseases in the soft tissues surrounding the teeth and the jawbone to which the teeth are anchored. 

A periodontist is also eminently qualified in the placement of dental implants, which can restore functionality to the mouth when teeth have been lost.

Conditions Treated by a Periodontist

The periodontist is able to treat mild, moderate and advanced gum disease. 

Where one or several teeth are missing, dental implants are an effective option. 

Periodontists also perform a vast range of periodontal plastic surgery (cosmetic gum) procedures to enhance the smile.

Reasons to see a periodontist include:

  • Problems with failing teeth or missing teeth (single, multiple or all teeth)
  • Receding gums
  • “Gummy smile” appearance (excess gum tissue)
  • Bleeding while eating, brushing or flossing
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Related health conditions  (diabetes, pregnancy, heart disease and stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory disease)
