What is a Periodontist?
Gum Disease Specialist and Treatment
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.
The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education beyond dental school.
By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, Paul A. Barabas, DDS, FACD and Daniel C. Barabas, DDS, MSD can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
