Periodontal Treatment FAQs
No, you don’t need a referral to visit a periodontist. Your regular general dentist might refer you to a periodontist if they notice a gum-related issue that they aren’t able to treat, but you can also book a consultation and treatment directly with a periodontist on your own.
General dentists can identify and treat early-stage gum disease, but once the disease reaches more advanced stages, a periodontist is typically the more suitable choice. If you notice one or a combination of the following signs, you should book a consultation with a periodontist.
- Gums with heavy bleeding or swelling
- Sharp or throbbing pain in your gums
- Teeth that feel loose
- Changes to your bite alignment
- Receding gums
Since periodontal treatments are provided with anesthesia, most people don’t experience much, if any, discomfort.
You might experience soreness or sensitivity after scaling and root planing or gum surgery, but nothing that can’t be easily managed with over-the-counter medication.
In many cases, reducing the symptoms or discomfort from mild to moderate periodontal disease just takes an initial deep cleaning and follow-up maintenance visit scheduled a few weeks apart.
