A Periodontist is a dentist who has completed three additional years of specialty training and hands-on experience to prevent, diagnose and treat periodontal disease. They have advanced knowledge of placing dental implants and maintaining the oral health of their periodontal patients.
If your general dentist refers you to a periodontist you most likely are exhibiting signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease affects the gums, teeth, and bone beneath the gum tissue. If not treated correctly, this illness can result in the loss of teeth, bone, and gum tissue.
“A periodontist is skilled at saving natural teeth. Additionally, a periodontist is skilled at restoring bone, gum tissue and placing implants” – Dr. Brown
Once the appropriate diagnostics have been gathered, Dr. Brown prefers to have an opportunity for thorough study and evaluation of the information presented to develop treatment plan options specific to helping you achieve oral health.
Your second visit will include a consultation at which time we may discuss the treatment plan options and answer any further questions you may have.
“Overall my experience was pain-free and successful. I would definitely come back.” – Lucy S.
