Periodontist FAQ

1. What is a periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease (gum disease) and in the placement of dental implants.

2. What conditions do periodontists treat?
Periodontists treat gum disease, receding gums, gum inflammation, gum recession, and place dental implants. They also perform procedures to regenerate bone and tissue lost to gum disease.

3. When should I see a periodontist?
You should see a periodontist if you have persistent gum inflammation, bleeding gums, receding gums, loose teeth, or if your general dentist recommends specialized periodontal care.

4. What are the symptoms of gum disease?
Symptoms of gum disease include red, swollen, and tender gums, bleeding while brushing or flossing, receding gums, bad breath, loose teeth, and changes in bite or tooth alignment.

5. How is gum disease treated?
Treatment options for gum disease include deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), antibiotics, and surgical procedures such as flap surgery, bone grafts, and tissue regeneration.

6. What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who have lost one or more teeth.

7. Are dental implants right for me?
Dental implants are an excellent option for most people with good oral and general health, sufficient bone density in the jaw, and a commitment to maintaining good oral hygiene.

8. What is the process for getting dental implants?
The process involves several steps: an initial consultation, implant placement surgery, a healing period for osseointegration (bonding of implant to bone), abutment placement, and finally, the attachment of a custom-made crown.

9. How long do dental implants last?
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene are essential to their longevity.

10. What should I expect during my first visit to a periodontist?
During your first visit, the periodontist will review your medical and dental history, perform a thorough examination of your gums and teeth, take X-rays, and discuss your treatment options based on the findings.

11. How can I prevent gum disease?
Prevent gum disease by maintaining good oral hygiene, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, using mouthwash, avoiding tobacco, and visiting your dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups.

12. What is the difference between a dentist and a periodontist?
A dentist provides general oral health care, including teeth cleaning, fillings, and check-ups. A periodontist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease and the placement of dental implants.

13. Do I need a referral to see a periodontist?
While a referral from your general dentist is often helpful, it is not always necessary. You can contact Westwood Periodontics directly to schedule an appointment.

14. What are the benefits of seeing a periodontist?
Seeing a periodontist provides specialized care for complex gum issues, expert placement of dental implants, advanced treatment options, and a focus on preserving and enhancing gum health.

15. How much do periodontal treatments cost?
The cost of periodontal treatments varies based on the type and extent of treatment needed. During your consultation, the periodontist will provide a detailed cost estimate and discuss payment options.

By addressing these questions, Westwood Periodontics can provide valuable information to potential patients and improve their online visibility for relevant search queries.
