You care about keeping your teeth and gums healthy, so when you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, you want to remedy the issue as soon as possible. Part of this essential process involves finding a periodontist who can help you restore the health of your gums and provide effective treatment options.

Factors to Consider 

As you start looking for the right periodontist, you should consider the following factors before scheduling an appointment:

  • How long the periodontist you are looking into has been practicing
  • The continuing education or recertification courses the periodontist has taken and how recently they were completed
  • The periodontist’s proposed treatment plan and the official diagnosis provided
  • The periodontist’s specific training or clinical experience performing the procedure or treatment you need
  • The technology the periodontist uses at the office, and their commitment to researching new periodontal technology

You should also consider things such as the periodontist’s office hours, whether the office staff is accommodating and professional, and the estimated cost of the proposed treatment.

When to Schedule an Appointment

Generally speaking, your dentist will provide recommend scheduling an appointment with a periodontist if you require specialized services not provided at your usual office. In many cases, your dentist will suggest seeing a periodontist if you have advanced gum disease and need treatment to restore the health of your gums.

At the McCawley Center for Laser Periodontics and Implants, we use laser gum disease treatment, which is an advanced form of treatment that only targets the bacteria and diseased tissue in the mouth. Recovery is rapid, and this type of treatment generates new bone growth so existing teeth are supported and protected.
