Periodontists usually treat more difficult and problematic periodontal cases. For example, patients affected by severe gum disease or those which have a very complex medical history. Periodontists will make a broad range of treatment options available to the patient. This may include a procedure by which the infected surface of the root is cleaned or a procedure by which removes the affected tissue is removed. A Periodontist can if appropriate carry out surgical procedures in case the level of gum disease is extremely severe.

Periodontists are highly trained individuals and experts in the field of oral inflammations. They have enjoyed extensive training in these specific fields. In fact there are three additional years of schooling required after finishing the standard dental school. In addition, they use the most advanced methods available for diagnosing and they also are proficient in performing periodontal cosmetic procedures.
