What is a periodontist - Newmarket dentists by Woo Dental

Periodontists specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as dental implant placement. They are experts when it comes to treating oral inflammation. Aside from oral inflammation, they can also perform cosmetic dental surgery.

What do periodontists do?

The main goal of every Newmarket dentist is to save the patient’s bone and tissue as much as possible. He will conduct different techniques to help resolve your dental problem. Here are the examples of  procedures your periodontist may use :

  • Bone grafting and contouring
  • Gum grafting
  • Tooth extractions
  • Dental implants

If you have severe gum problems, your regular dentist will refer you to a periodontist. During your visit, your periodontist will do the following :

  • Look at your medical history for potential contributing factors
  • Examine your mouth for bleeding gums, plaque and tartar
  • Identify your gum pocket depth 
  • Check the bone density with X-rays

With the examinations mentioned above, your periodontist designs a periodontal treatment suited for your needs.

What to look for in a periodontist?

Maintaining your oral health means looking for a qualified periodontist who can help you with your dental issues. Choosing the best periodontist requires consideration of the following factors. 

  • Check their credentials
  • Excellent dental records and experiences
  • Use of technology
  • Availability
  • Pain management

Do you have gum disease? If so, it’s important to get treated as soon as possible. Gum disease is a serious condition that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. The longer you wait, the worse your teeth will become and the more expensive treatment becomes. Don’t let this happen! Call  a Newmarket dentist for an appointment!
