Specialty of Periodontics

 

Periodontal Specialty Care in Anniston, AL
The specialty of Periodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association®.

Periodontists complete three additional years of education beyond dental school. Their training is focused on studies in advanced techniques in oral soft tissue and bone grafting, dental implant placement and integration, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and cosmetic periodontal procedures.

Ongoing clinical research in Periodontics is focused on the development of new techniques and implementation of emerging technology in periodontal plastic surgery, oral reconstructive surgery, tissue regeneration and implantology.

Periodontists and medical professionals continue to pursue improvements of therapies used in the treatment of periodontal disease through the study of systemic relationships between periodontal health and whole body health.

General Dentists and other dental specialists refer their patients to a Periodontist for the treatment of periodontal disease or for placement of dental implants. They also rely on the Periodontist to perform gum-sculpting and grafting procedures that complement cosmetic dental restorations such as porcelain veneers and crowns.
