What is a Periodontist
Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on the health of the supporting structures of your teeth. A periodontist has completed an additional 3 years of specialty training beyond the 4 years required for general dentistry.
During this time they are trained in preventing, diagnosing and treating gum disease. Periodontists are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures such as crown lengthening and gum grafting.
