Who is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in periodontal disease (gum disease) therapy, as well as cosmetic periodontics and the placement of dental implants. Periodontists focus primarily on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease. A periodontist is also an expert  in the treatment of oral inflammation. A specialization in periodontics requires two to three years of additional training through a hospital or university based program accredited by the American Dental Association.
