Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Periodontists are experts in the field of gum disease and treating the structures in the mouth that support the teeth. They focus on prevention and treatment and have further education in the specialty, including hands-on experience in diagnosing gum disease conditions. General dentists can treat most gum disease cases, but if it progresses to an advanced stage or presents as a rare form of gum disease, a periodontist will be called in.
