The Short Answer: We’re a specialized type of dentist, with three additional years of formal training, and we specialize in the management and treatment of periodontal diseases, including gingivitis, periodontitis and gingival recession (gum recession). We are also experts in dental implants.
The Long Answer: The American Dental Association recognizes 12 specialties of dentistry. Periodontics is one of them. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical and non-surgical treatment of diseases and conditions of the periodontium. So what’s a periodontium? Great question. It’s the specialized tissues that surround and support your teeth.
We treat and manage all forms of gingivitis, periodontitis (gum disease) and gingival recession (gum recession), and we also have specialized training in dental implants.
If you’re reading this, you’ve most likely been referred to a periodontist by another dentist or physician. And your next question may be: what makes Piedmont Periodontics different?
Well, there are many good periodontal practices in the Upstate. Some offer great service. Some offer new technologies and expertise. And some make you feel welcome and comfortable. We offer all three.
So if you want to be treated with respect and kindness, by proven periodontal experts (offering both hearts and brains), with access to state-of-the-art technologies, surrounded by a welcoming, friendly atmosphere that wants what’s best for your oral health, Piedmont Periodontics would love to help.
