What is a periodontist?
A periodontist is trained to provide treatment for gum disease and restore missing teeth with dental implants. Periodontists specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum related problems and work to improve oral health.
Do I really need to see a periodontist?
Periodontal disease is most often painless in the early and moderate phases and then may become more noticeable and symptomatic in the later stages when it’s more difficult to control. If you have any, some, or all of the following symptoms then you need to see a periodontist right away: periodic bleeding or taste of blood in your mouth, any swelling of the gums that comes and goes, bad taste in your mouth, pain on flossing, on brushing, or on chewing or biting, shifting of your teeth or increase spacing between your teeth, or food trapping. The un-treated periodontal disease can increase your risk of developing or worsening other health issues – so it’s important to identify it and address it as quickly as possible before your health further deteriorates. Dr. Ari Moskowitz may recommend different types of periodontal therapies and treatments such as gum grafting, bone grafting, laser gum disease treatment, dental implants or the perio protect gel tray system to improve your oral health.
