Information for Patients - What does a Periodontist do?

A periodontist treats the different diseases that affect the gum and bone surrounding your teeth. Gum disease is now the leading cause of tooth loss in the adult population and as such we place a strong emphasis on its detection and treatment. A periodontist also provides cosmetic periodontal treatments. We can therefore also offer a number of cosmetic gum treatment options including:

  • Recession coverage to cover exposed tooth root surfaces
  • Crown lengthening to increase the length of teeth and reduce a “gummy” smile
  • Gum recontouring to correct irregularities and give a balanced, symmetrical smile.
  • Regeneration of dental tissues lost to periodontal disease
