Periodontist in Flemington, NJ
The CDC reports that nearly half of American adults have periodontal disease. It’s hard to believe that a disease can inflict so many people. If your dentist was able to catch your gum disease during a routine checkup, then chances are they will also recommend that you see a periodontist. Here at Sand Hill Dental, our periodontal team is here to provide your gums with the tender, loving care it deserves to fight disease and stay healthy.
What is a periodontist and what do they treat?
A periodontist is a dental specialist who treats gum and periodontal disease. They are dentists who go through three additional years of training to become periodontists. During these years, they gain expertise in the oral disease process and how to prevent, diagnose and treat oral disease.
Periodontal disease is caused from bacterial plaque which produces toxins that can destroy the hard and soft tissue support around your teeth. Periodontal disease attacks many hard and soft tissue areas in your mouth, so it's important to take care of your gums and see a specialist if gum issues arise.
