When Should You Refer to a Periodontist?

Posted on 12/19/2022 by Todd Jorgenson
When Should You Refer to a Periodontist?A periodontist is a dentist who focuses on avoiding, detecting, and treating infections and illnesses of the soft tissues surrounding teeth and the jawbone that supports them. In addition to the standard four years of dentistry school, periodontists must complete the third year of training. As a result, they are knowledgeable about the most cutting-edge procedures required to handle periodontal disease and set up dental implants. To fully enhance the smile, periodontists also conduct a wide range of aesthetic operations. When to visit a periodontist is a question that many individuals have.

There are various ways to get periodontist treatment. During a routine dental examination, a periodontist visit may be suggested if a general dentist or dental hygienist discovers signs of gingivitis or quickly worsening periodontal disease. If you experience the following symptoms, then you must see a periodontist:

Bleeding While Eating or Brushing


You need to see a periodontist when you experience unexplained bleeding when eating food or when brushing your teeth. This could be a sign that something is going on.

Bad Breath


Even with a strict oral hygiene regimen in place, persistent foul breath (halitosis) might be a sign of periodontitis, gingivitis, or the start of an infection in the gum tissues.

Gum Recession and Lose Teeth


Longer-looking teeth may indicate bone loss and gum recession brought on by periodontal disease. The jawbone, which serves as the anchor holding the teeth in place, is attacked as the disease advances, making the teeth lose and potentially leading to tooth loss.

Related Health Conditions


Periodontitis and periodontal infections strongly correlate with diabetes, heart disease, osteopenia, and osteoporosis. Through the bloodstream, the bacterial infection may spread to other bodily areas. Besides, patients with exposed root surfaces, 5mm pocket depth, anatomic gingival deformities, and a deteriorating risk profile should seek periodontal treatment.
