What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist that specializes in treating soft tissue and bone problems within the oral cavity. Periodontists go through extensive schooling and training to qualify as a periodontist. Periodontists aim to prevent gum disease by diagnosing any early signs of gingivitis, periodontitis, and bone loss. Periodontal diseases are progressive and can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal conditions include mild, moderate and advanced periodontitis.
