Many people have never heard of a Periodontist, but the fact is that they play an important role in the oral health of many individuals. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of oral inflammation and play a crucial role in everything from the diagnosis to repair and placement of dentures and dental implants.
A periodontist provides effective treatment for gum disease and delivers dental procedures like root planning, scaling, root debridement and more, utilizing the most appropriate and effective surgical procedures.
Although some periodontal needs can be examined and treated by a general dentist, it is still best to see a periodontist if you are experiencing problems your gums or have signs of periodontal disease.
Gum disease falls in various stages starting from mild up to severe condition but a competent, skilled and experienced periodontist can effectively work and treat this disease regardless of the level of severity. Before setting up an appointment, it is advisable to be familiar with the methods and possible treatments.

A periodontist can also determine if an individual is displaying a tartar buildup under his teeth. There are instances that gums are starting to separate from the teeth that eventually cause the teeth to lose. This scenario also leads to gum swelling and irritation which can cause pain and discomfort to patients.
