Prosthodontists specialize in oral rehabilitation. They make, fit and install crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, complete and partial dentures, and dental implants. They treat temporal-mandibular joint problems; traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structures; congenital anomalies of the mouth; and snoring and sleep disorders. Prosthodontists also perform reconstructive work on patients who have had oral cancer surgery. In addition to undergoing dental training, prosthodontists have been trained in the aesthetics of dental repair and improvement.
A periodontist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (or gum) disease and oral inflammation. Therefore, Periodontists treat infections with scaling and root planing. — a procedure that cleans the infected root of a tooth — or actually remove damaged tissue. They may also use other surgical procedures to treat periodontal disease. In addition to examining the teeth and gums, the periodontist may take X-rays or probe between the teeth and gums to see whether pockets of infection have formed.
