Who is a periodontist?

The term periodontist comes from peri which means around and odon which means tooth, together creating the reference to the erosion of the gums and bone around the teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who has specialised in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum related diseases or periodontal disease, bone grafting and in placing dental implants. Periodontists specialise and focus on gum disease and soft tissue issues. There are a number of reasons that can lead to developing gum disease which will require you to consult a periodontist.

  • No proper oral hygiene
  • Smoking
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Hard to clean crooked teeth
  • Stress
  • Age
  • Poor diet
  • Diabetes
  • Genetics
  • Medications that reduce saliva
  • Hormonal changes from pregnancy, oral contraceptives or menopause

Gum disease is one of the main reasons for tooth loss in adults. If you have mild gum disease symptoms then your regular dentist will be able to treat you but anything more severe and you will likely be referred to a periodontist.

What areas do periodontists specialise in?

If you need gum disease treatment then a periodontist is who you will need because that is their area of expertise along with dental implant treatments and bone grafting. They can also perform tooth extractions.

What are the treatments carried out by a periodontist?

Periodontists specialise with treating periodontal diseases and help patients heal and prevent gum disease by doing effective routine dental cleanings. They receive extra training on the latest technology and techniques and how to use both to diagnose and treat gum issues. Not treating gum disease or an ongoing gum infection can lead to tooth and bone loss.

Sometimes symptoms can be obvious and sometimes not so much so if you are feeling any discomfort then you should seek dental care. If caught at the gingivitis stage, gum disease is reversable which is why you should immediately book an appointment with a periodontist if you suspect that you are suffering with it. If not treated periodontal disease can lead to serious health problems.

Some common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Loose teeth
  • Tender, swollen or red gums
  • Receding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Pus between the gum and teeth

There are four main stages of gum disease:

Gingivitis – This is the first stage and is caused by a build-up of plaque and tartar at or around the gum line. This stage is reversible and can be treated with professional cleaning and continuous home care. A combination of antibiotics and medicated mouthwashes will help kill any remaining bacteria.

Chronic Periodontal Disease – This stage of the disease affects the bone and fibres that support the teeth roots. At this stage it begins to destroy the bone and by this stage it cannot be completely cured because the supportive gum tissue cannot be rebuilt. Scaling, root planning together with antimicrobial treatments will help treat it and stop it developing further.

Moderate Periodontal Disease – This stage has deeper periodontal pockets allowing the bacteria to aggressively attack bones and bloodstream. It has to be professionally cleaned thoroughly with gum disease treatment.

Aggressive Periodontal Disease – This is the final stage and when bones have already suffered significant deterioration and will require periodontal surgery or laser treatment to be treated. Bacteria-filled pockets are deep cleaned. If not treated it can lead to gaps between the teeth, serious health problems and the need for dentures.

Periodontists perform both non-surgical and surgical treatments.

  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Laser Treatments
  • Periodontics’ Tray Delivery Systems
  • Dental Implants
  • Regeneration
  • Soft Tissue Grafting
  • Gingivectomy

Periodontists offer plastic surgery services like:

  • Dental crown lengthening to fix an uneven gum line
  • Ridge augmentation to restore the natural curve of the gums after replacing a missing tooth
  • Gum grafts to reduce the appearance of long teeth

What to expect at an appointment with a periodontist?

If you have been referred to a periodontist with suspected gum disease then during your initial consultation your periodontist will check your gums for confirmation. Various instruments and x-rays will be used to identify the issue. Full-depth measurements and assessments of your gums and bone condition will be done and evaluated, to determine whether your bone can provide support to your teeth and if you require tissue regeneration.
A periodontist will also do the initial evaluation if you are considering a dental implant to ensure that your gums and jaw are in a healthy state for the procedure.
