Your typical periodontal needs can be managed by a general dentist. However, as more and more patients are exhibiting signs of periodontal disease, your treatment may need a greater level of expertise by a specialist trained in this area. Research shows that there is a link between chronic signs of aging and periodontal disease. Patients with moderate or severe levels of gum disease, or patients with more complex cases, will be best managed by a partnership between the dentist and periodontist.
