A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, as well as the placement and maintenance of dental implants. Periodontists are experts at treating all forms of periodontal disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and gingival recession.
The American Dental Association recognizes Periodontics as one of the nine specialties of dentistry. Periodontists receive extensive training, including three years of additional education, beyond dental school.
By choosing a specialist, you will benefit from the latest procedures for treating periodontal disease and placing dental implants tailored to your needs. In addition, Dr. Lyons has been a dentist for more than 20 years and a Board Certified Periodontist for over 10 years.
