A periodontist is a dentist who focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and in the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school.

This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort.
