A periodontist is a dentist who is specialized in treating gum disease. This covers prevention, diagnoses as well as treatment and also includes dental implant placement. If you’re experiencing any type of gum condition, this is the type of dentist that you want to see.
Who is Your Periodontist?
A periodontist, like all other specialists, need additional training beyond general dentistry. They are familiar with all of the very latest techniques, diagnostics as well as treatments. They also have extensive training in additional cosmetic periodontal procedures.
At Midtown Dental Group, we feel that you need the most qualified doctors treating you. A periodontist is always available to give you the care you need. Unfortunately, a majority of the people neglect visiting a dentist and may not know they even have a problem.
Gum disease can be undetectable unless you are aware of the warning signs. Here are some signs that may indicate the need to schedule an appointment and see a periodontist.
- Receding gums
- Bad breath
- Dry mouth
- Bleeding gums
- Swollen gums
- Loose teeth
- Deep gum pockets
The signs may or may not indicate a problem, but if you do experience one or many of them, you should immediately schedule an appointment and get examined.
Also, the majority of people put off going to the dentist, or the periodontist, because of fear of pain. You don’t have to worry about the pain. We only use the very best techniques and state of the art equipment that significantly reduces discomfort and gets great results at the same time.
Most gum conditions can be easily repaired and reversed. We don’t want you to lose your natural teeth by delaying a visit, because of the fear of a painful treatment. Give us a call and schedule an appointment. We offer very comfortable dental treatments in a uplifting and positive environment.
