A periodontist treats serious forms of gum disease that do not get better with normal dental care. When your roots show and your gums have receded away, there is bone loss. When this happens, more brushing and flossing won’t make it go away. You need a periodontist to fix it.
Periodontists are experts at dental implants. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw, that will hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture.
