Essex Periodontal Care Specialists
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the treatment of the gums and the bones that support the teeth. As dentists, periodontists also have a comprehensive knowledge of basic dental care. However, they treat patients who require treatment for gum diseases that extend beyond mild gingivitis. They are also specialists that perform some types of prosthodontics, such as dental implants.
