Referring You To a Periodontist

Your general dentist has determined that your gums require special care, and has referred you to a periodontist. Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of gum disease. By referring you to a periodontist, your dentist is showing a strong commitment to optimal dental care.

To help you understand why the treatment might be needed, and how your teeth can be saved, our Patient Education Center will answer some of the most frequently asked questions about periodontal therapy.
