If you are suffering from gum disease, your dentist in Puyallup, WA may refer you to a periodontist. How can a periodontist help you achieve better oral health? Watch this video to find out.
Periodontists specialize in treating inflammatory gum diseases. They receive three additional years of training beyond dental school specifically in managing conditions that affect the gum tissue. They can offer advanced treatments of gum disease, including surgical care and dental implants, using the very latest technology. Because they have more specialized training in the management of gum disease than a general dentist, they can often prevent gum disease from reaching the stage at which it causes tooth loss, if they provide treatment early enough.
