Periodontists have received 3 years of specialized training beyond the normal 4 years of dental school, in the diagnosis and treatment of gum diseases. They are also trained in implant surgery as well. As good as implants are, nothing exceeds the value and quality of keeping your own natural teeth. Even teeth with serious bone loss can be rejuvenated and maintained long-term by bone grafting and proper treatment.
If you have been told that you need teeth extracted, but would rather keep your own teeth, an examination by a periodontist could give you the adequate information you need to make that all important and crucial decision for keeping your own teeth versus replacing them with implants.
