What is a periodontist?

6th September 2021

Why have I been referred to one?

Periodontal Disease is from a high amount of infections regarding the inflammation of the gums.
So, a periodontist is a dentist who specialises in treating gum conditions. We can help make sure your gums are treated correctly at RW. Perio. Furthermore, 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.
