What is a periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist that has completed an additional 2-3 years of post-graduate training in a recognized specialized field of dentistry. Periodontists are trained and educated in the field of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease.  Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal diseases, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.
