Periodontics/Dental Implants Do I Need a Periodontist? If you notice swollen gums, bleeding or discomfort, you likely need a periodontist. 75% of adults over age 35 have gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease. If left untreated, bleeding gums and gingivitis can lead to a more serious form of gum disease, called periondontitis. Periodontists have special expertise in gum disease, which is often the underlying cause of unhealthy or missing teeth. A periodontist also focuses on treating the structures that support your teeth, and in placing dental implants. Periodontal Services at Eastman Periodontal therapy returns your gums and jawbone to normal health. Dental implants provide you with new teeth to replace ones that are either missing or damaged. Dental implants not only look like real teeth, they have the stability, comfort, and functionality of real teeth, too. For the very best implants, you need the care of both a periodontist and a prosthodontist. At Eastman Dental, our coordinated team approach ensures that both of these specialists will be guiding your care. Check out these videos of patients who received care from Eastman Dental!
