Periodontics and Periodontists

Periodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. 

Yesterday, we wrote a bit about the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA. Today, we would like to focus on one of those specialties that's near and dear to us: Periodontics.
Periodontics is a dental specialty concerned with dental implants and the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the tissues supporting and surrounding the teeth. (In layman's terms, a periodontist treats dental implants and gum disease.) 
Periodontists are specially trained in the placement of dental implants to help replace missing teeth.  Dr. Versman and Dr. Heller are Periodontists at  Periodontal Associates in Denver - Aurora, CO -  Dr. Versman & Dr. Heller work as a team with your general dentist in coordinating dental implant treatment. Periodontists also supervise patients in the maintenance of periodontal health and are experts in the treatment of oral inflammation.

Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.

Every aspect of periodontal treatment aims at restoring health to the gums and bone so that teeth may be saved. Patients may be referred to a periodontist by their dentist, family, or friends, or they may schedule an appointment or consultation if they are in need of implants or suspect gum disease. 
If you, or someone you know, is interested in replacing a missing tooth or teeth, please contact us today and find out why Periodontal Associates is Colorado's Premier Provider of Dental Implants and Periodontics. In fact, 80% of our work is referred to us by dental professionals in the Denver metro and surrounds area!
