Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease or periodontitis, ranges from gingivitis to tooth loss, and can be more common as we age. There are other risk factors – smoking and diabetes among them. Periodontists are specialists trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gum disease. No matter your age or circumstance, here’s what to look for when choosing a Utah periodontist for preventing, diagnosing and/or treating periodontitis, including dental implants.

  1. Periodontists are Dental Specialists: The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of eight specialties within the dental field. Periodontists complete dental school and extra training, including a 3-year periodontic residency, followed by National Board certification and continual recertification. This means a periodontist should always be at the top of their game. If you are a Utah resident and in need of a Utah periodontist;  look for a Board Certified Periodontist.
  2. Periodontists Offer Specialized Treatment: All the specialized education required of periodontists is focused on the diseases and infections that affect the gums and the bones inside the mouth, yielding in-depth knowledge of their prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. You might be referred to a periodontist by your dentist, and self-referral is also an option. 
  3. Periodontists Deliver State-of-the-Art Care: As dental specialists, periodontists stay up to date on advancements in the industry, including technology and equipment. Periodontists are skilled in surgical and non-surgical techniques, including dental implants.
  4. Periodontists Provide Personalized Care: The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of eight specialties within the dental field. Periodontists complete dental school and extra training, including a 3-year periodontic residency, followed by National Board certification and continual recertification. This means a periodontist should always be at the top of their game. If you are a Utah resident and in need of a Utah periodontist;  look for a Board Certified Periodontist.

Ultimately, choosing a periodontist should leave you with a smile on your face – all the more attractive following the process and procedure.
