A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the treatment of gingivitis & gum disease, also known as periodontitis. A periodontist is a fully trained dentist who completes additional specialized training in the field of periodontics after completing a general dental degree. This additional training makes a periodontist an expert in gum disease, its risk factors, & the symptoms & conditions that come with this dental disease. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, a periodontist will become a central part of your routine dental care & will work with your dentist to create a treatment plan to keep your condition from getting worse. At Dental Specialties Inc., we are proud to have a periodontist on staff so patients don’t have to be referred out for their treatment.
