What is a Periodontist?
New York periodontists deal with the supporting foundation of a tooth’s structure, as well as managing and treating the diseases and conditions that affect them. Gingivitis is a common example of a periodontal disease. Periodontitis is cause by untreated gingivitis and as such, is more severe. This can present itself as chronic, aggressive, necrotizing and other sub-categories that are cause for immediate treatment by a New York periodontist. These diseases cause the gums to separate from teeth and become infected which can lead to the destruction of gum tissue and oral bone structures as well as teeth to become so loose that they need to be removed, leaving the mouth in an aesthetically unpleasing state.
Someone who is affected by periodontal diseases should seek out a New York periodontist in order to avoid bone and tooth loss. Periodontists have the training to insert and maintain dental implants as well as engage in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of other periodontal diseases and oral inflammation.
