What does it cost to have a million-dollar smile? Thankfully, not a million dollars! Still, maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a job that requires constant vigilannce. The last thing you want are unhealthy gums that can no longer support your pearly whites. That’s why it is essential that you make visiting a periodontist (a gum specialist) a routine part of your preventative dental care.
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating diseases of the gum and the bone tissue that support the teeth. Gum specialists attend four years of dental school, then commit another two to three years to further training to become experts in their specialty, according to Perio.org.
In addition to treating periodontal diseases such as gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and periodontitis (gum disease), a periodontist can also perform cosmetic procedures to enhance your smile.
