How to Choose the Best Periodontist in Belmont, MA?

If you need the specialized services, skills, and expertise of a periodontist, you may be referred to a particular practice by your dentist. If your dentist refers you to a specific periodontist, it is likely because that specialist has earned the respect and trust of both the dentist and the dentist’s patients. But, if your dentist doesn’t recommend a specific periodontist, or if you’re seeking periodontal treatment on your own, there are three easy steps to take to choose the best periodontist in Belmont, MA. 

Confirm a Periodontist’s Education, Experience & Training

An online search such as “Belmont Mass Periodontist” will provide a good starting point, directing you to the websites of periodontists in the area. Visit at least a few of the websites and look for information about the practice’s specialists. This information should be easy to find with a tab at the top of the site, providing background information including education, training, experience, awards, honors, and more.  

Read Online Reviews

Online reviews let you know how patients feel about the care they receive from a periodontist. So, when searching for the best periodontist in Belmont, be sure to note the star rating and read reviews on Google, or healthcare-specific sites, such as HealthGrades. Periodontists with excellent online reviews will often make it very easy to find and read their reviews, with links prominently displayed on their websites. 

Confirm the Periodontist Provides Comprehensive Services

Periodontists specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the tissues that support the teeth and in the placement of dental implants. As such, the best periodontists will provide comprehensive services, including both surgical and non-surgical treatments to restore the gums and bones to good health. To that end, confirm that your periodontist provides treatment such as:

  • Non-surgical gum disease treatment (scaling and root planing)
  • Periodontal disease maintenance
  • Gum grafting
  • Bone grafting
  • Crown lengthening
  • Gum contouring
  • Dental Implants
  • Osseous Surgery
  • Periodontal Regeneration
  • Pocket Reduction Surgery
  • Dental Implant Treatment
