What is the importance of visiting a board certified periodontist?
- Posted on: Jun 15 2020
Just like a traditional dentist, a periodontist completes a four-year undergraduate degree to become a dental professional. When they graduate from an accredited dental school, they receive the title of either DDS or DMD. However, a board-certified periodontist has even more training and significant experience in the area of dental work. In fact, a board-certified periodontist will often have an additional three to seven years of specialized training at an ADA-accredited periodontology program. This allows them to receive the title of “board-certified.”
Why choose a board-certified periodontist?
A periodontist offers several different services for patients. This includes:
- The diagnosis of periodontal disease
- Treatment of oral inflammation
- The placement, restoration, and repair of dental implants
- Scaling and root planing to treat gum disease
- Root surface debridement
Choosing a board-certified periodontist means you are getting the best possible care from a dental professional. With continued education and training, a board-certified periodontist will ensure that conditions such as periodontal disease and treatments using dental implants are done correctly. Effective treatment of periodontal disease is especially important due to the damage that can occur if left untreated. Our team is dedicated in providing proper diagnosis and treatment of this and other conditions that may impact the smile.
