Periodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of problems associated with oral soft tissues and bone surrounding natural teeth and implants.
A periodontist is a certified specialist dealing with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of periodontal and peri-implant diseases as well as development and maintenance of healthy, functional attachment levels, around teeth and implants.
Periodontists are involved with the building and establishment of the hard and soft tissues and maintaining these as healthy foundations to support teeth and implants in the gums and bone. Periodontists are therefore in a unique position to achieve and maintain optimal results esthetically and functionally, long-term.
Periodontists receive 3 years of extensive and accredited training beyond dental school and are continually upgrading their training to remain current with advancing technologies and best practices of care.
