A periodontist is a dentist who has further qualifications in the treatment and management of gum disease.
The first step would be an accurate and full assessment of your condition. At Kent Smile Studio, our periodontist would undertake this and take the necessary x-rays and gum measurements to assess this. Your medical health will also be assessed as this can have an impact on the severity of the gum disease.
The aim of gum disease treatment is not only to look for a cure for the gum disease but to control it before it spreads to other teeth. If caught early, then the periodontist may be able to provide treatment for gingivitis (a milder form of gum disease due to plaque build-up). This ensures that the gingivitis does not progress to periodontitis (gum disease).
The treatment is usually carried out by a specialist in gum disease (periodontist). Treatment can be in the form of:
Cert in Surgical and Prosthodontic Implantology UCL (Eng) Specialist in Periodontology and Oral Medicine (Col) Bachelor of Dental Surgery (Col)
GDC No: 160263
