While a general dentist may offer a deep cleaning for gum infection or possibly perform a simple tooth extraction, a periodontist is needed for the treatment of advanced periodontal disease
or complex cases of extraction. This is due to specialized expertise in the area of gum tissue and bone, addressing issues such as:
• Gum disease
• Gum recession
• Tooth loss
• Bone loss
will work closely with your dentist to ensure that you receive the best
possible care and that your dentist remains informed of your progress.
Periodontal care is in addition to, not instead of, regular dental care so be
sure to schedule your usual cleanings and checkups with your dentist.
