Why Choose a Periodontist - Torrance, CA
Specialized, Advanced Periodontal and Dental Implant Care Offers Great Benefits for Your Health and Smile
What Is a Periodontist and Implant Specialist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the field of periodontics and surgical placement of implants. Periodontics involve the advanced diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and conditions affecting the gums, bone and structures supporting the teeth. Implantology is the area of dentistry that focuses on replacing missing teeth with dental implant solutions. Periodontists attend an additional three years of highly specialized training beyond the four years of dental school. Seeing a dentist who specializes in periodontics affords significant advantages for your oral health and smile, and is especially valuable when it comes to complex procedures like dental implant placement.
What Are the Benefits of Seeing a Periodontist for Periodontal Treatment?
Similar to visiting a cardiologist for a heart condition or an orthopedist for a knee replacement, choosing a periodontist for your gum, bone and tooth replacement needs gives you access to the highest standard of care in dentistry. Periodontists receive more advanced training in periodontal and implant treatments. These specialists have an advanced ability to properly diagnose and treat problems involving gum and bone health, as well as place dental implants. As an additional advantage, choosing a periodontist affords greater accuracy with treatment planning, and the advanced skill, knowledge and expertise necessary to restore health and function to your smile.
