A Periodontist is a dental specialist who focuses on the treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and other oral conditions affecting oral tissue.

Periodontal disease affects the support around teeth including the jawbones and gum.

Specialists in aesthetics

Pre-prosthetic surgery can also be carried out to improve aesthetics and function of restorations such as crowns and bridges. The placement of dental implants is frequently undertaken by Periodontists especially when aesthetics are concerned. Periodontists work closely with other dental professionals, hygienists and other dental specialists to restore health, function and anaesthetics to the smile.
