Periodontology cares for patients with gum disease and conditions affecting the structures of the teeth.
Periodontology at Wellstar
Wellstar’s highly trained and specialized periodontists diagnose and manage the care of gum disease and related conditions that affect the structures of the teeth. They typically see dental patients with oral inflammation and other complex dental cases.
Our periodontists can perform a range of surgical procedures and non-surgical treatments, such as scaling, root planning and deep cleaning below the gum-line. They also provide root surface debridement or removal of damaged tissue. These specialists place dental implants, and oversee their maintenance and repairs. Periodontists receive training as dentists and then three years of additional specialized training.
