A periodontist is a dental specialist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists are experts when it comes to treating oral inflammation. For patients with more severe gum disease, a periodontist is the one to visit.

Gum disease also referred to as periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth.
One of the main causes of gum disease is a build-up of bacteria on teeth and around the gums. If these bacteria aren’t removed by a regular oral care routine of brushing and flossing, they can cause gum inflammation (gingivitis).
