Should I See My Dentist or a Periodontist?

Periodontists Partner with Dentists

Research suggests that there is a relationship between periodontal disease and other chronic diseases of aging. Having a trained, specialized expert can help, particularly with more complex cases. These cases are often best managed for the patient with a partnership between the dentist and a periodontist.

Do I need a referral from my dentist

No. A referral is not required. If you are concerned about the health of your mouth or you want a better smile, you can schedule an appointment with Dr. Clagett in Elizabethtown, KY, without a referral from your dentist.

How do dentists and periodontists partner up

Dentists primarily work on teeth and are considered restorative specialists. Periodontists work on the gums and bones that support your teeth as well as offer solutions for missing teeth with dental implants. Dentists and periodontists will work together as teammates to solve all of your dental needs.

Periodontists Have Extensive, Specialized Training

The periodontal needs of some patients can be managed by a dentist. The more severe the periodontal disease, the more potential benefits there are of working with a periodontist. All dentists have some training of periodontics. Periodontists have more training (3 years of additional graduate school, plus ongoing specialized training in periodontics.)
