Dr. Gordon is not only a highly skilled dentist, he has completed additional advanced training to be specialized in both Endodontics and Periodontics. Periodontics is a dental specialty that involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth or their substitutes and the maintenance of the health, function, and esthetics of these structures and tissues.
What Is A Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and in the placement of dental implants. A periodontist typically has had two to three years of additional training in diagnosing and treating gum disease and its associated problems. Periodontists are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. Moreover, periodontists can perform cosmetic periodontal procedures to improve your smile.
Often, dentists refer their patients to a periodontist when the patient's periodontal disease is advanced. Since Dr. Gordon is trained in dentistry and periodontics, we do not have to refer our patients out like most other dentists do. This makes it extra convenient for our patients to stay in house and receive the specialized care they need from Dr. Gordon, a dental professional they already know and trust.
