Why a Periodontist is the MD of Implants?

In the realm of dental specialties, periodontists hold a unique position, often considered the medical doctors (MDs) of dental implants. This distinction underscores not only their specialized expertise in implantology but also their comprehensive understanding of oral structures and their commitment to preserving oral health.

As a leading periodontist, Dr. Gupta embodies this specialization, offering unparalleled expertise in the placement, maintenance, and care of dental implants. At Westwood Periodontics, that’s exactly what we do.

Understanding the Specialization of Periodontics

Periodontists receive extensive training focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, as well as in the placement of dental implants or saving misaligned implants. Their education encompasses in-depth knowledge of the complex anatomy of the oral cavity, particularly the supporting structures of the teeth, such as gums and bone.

The Periodontist's Expertise

Comprehensive Care: Periodontists are experts in managing the health of all oral structures, not just extracting problematic teeth. Their training emphasizes saving and restoring these structures, ensuring the longevity of both natural teeth and implants.

Specialized Training: Beyond dental school, periodontists undergo years of additional training in periodontics and implantology, focusing on techniques to effectively manage gum disease and skillfully place dental implants.

Preventive Approach: With a deep understanding of gum health, periodontists are adept at preventing and treating conditions that could compromise implant success, such as peri-implantitis.

Oral Surgeons vs. Periodontists

While both oral surgeons and periodontists are vital to dental health, their areas of specialization differ significantly:

Oral Surgeons: Specialize in surgery of the mouth, face, and jaws. Their training is centered on removing diseased tissues or teeth, reconstructive surgery, and treating facial trauma. Oral surgeons address the broader maxillofacial region rather than focusing solely on the preservation of oral health.

Periodontists: Simply put, periodontists are dental surgeons—surgeons of the teeth. Focus on the structures that support teeth, employing a holistic approach to preserve and enhance dental health. Their specialization in dental implants is backed by a profound understanding of gum health and its critical role in the success of implantation.

Why Choose a Periodontist for Your Dental Implants?

Choosing a periodontist for dental implants ensures that patients receive care that is not only focused on the successful placement of the implant but also on the long-term health of the entire oral cavity.

Tailored Treatment Plans: Understanding the nuances of gum health allows periodontists to create personalized implant treatment plans that address individual patient needs, ensuring optimal outcomes.

Advanced Techniques: Periodontists utilize the latest in dental technology and techniques for implant placement, ensuring minimal discomfort and promoting faster healing.

Holistic Care: The periodontist’s approach encompasses the health of gums and bone, crucial for the support and longevity of dental implants.

The MD of Dental Implants

Just as an MD provides comprehensive care centered on the whole patient, a periodontist provides holistic oral care with a focus on preserving and enhancing the health of all oral structures.

In the context of dental implants, this means not just placing the implant but ensuring that the gums and bone around the implant remain healthy and strong, supporting the implant for years to come.
