What is a periodontist and why have I been referred to one?

25th July 2019

A periodontist is a dentist who specialises in treating gum conditions. To be a specialist in gums, a dentist must undergo a 3-4 year rigorous training programme.

On some occasions, periodontal disease can be treated by a regular dentist or hygienist. However, if your condition has not responded well to past treatment or if it is severe or extensive, you may benefit from a referral to someone who can provide more advanced care.
