Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease or disease that involves the supporting and surrounding tissues of teeth or their substitutes. This includes the maintenance of the health, function, and esthetics of these structures and tissues, dental implants, and cosmetic periodontal procedures.
