A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, the placement of dental implants, as well as other specialised dental treatments. Periodontists are also experts in the treatment of oral inflammation. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.

Periodontists often treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. They can also treat patients with severe gum problems using a range of surgical procedures. In addition, periodontists are specially trained in the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants.

Below are some of the treatments:

  • Treatment of Gum Disease (Gingivitis and Periodontitis)
  • Implants
  • Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
  • Oral Cancer Screening Plus Diagnosis
  • Treatment of Oral Disease and conditions
  • Treatment of Gum Recession
