What Is A Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.
The American Dental Association recognizes periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education beyond dental school. Our doctors are all Board Certified as Diplomates of the American Board of Periodontology. For more information about periodontal diseases, and periodontal treatment, in addition to our website, please visit ADA, American Academy of Perio., or the Academy of Osseointegration.
By choosing a specialist you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, Dr. Pollack and Dr. Sarmiento can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to help you achieve the smile you desire.
