What is a Periodontist?
A Periodontist is a dental specialist. Periodontists are experts on the ligaments, gums and bone that support teeth, along with the tissues that support dental implants.
Their primary focus is diagnosis and treatment of gum disease, but they manage and treat other conditions that affect the gums and bone.
They have a high level of skill and knowledge in specialised procedures, including the growing of new bone, correcting defects in the gum tissue, the placement of dental implants and undertaking procedures that change the shape or contour of the gums and bones around teeth.
Training to become a periodontist requires firstly qualification & practice as a dentist followed an additional 3 years of university study.
