Does your gum bleed whenever you eat anything or brush your teeth? It might be an early sign of gum disease, but don't panic. Metro Dental clinic is here to provide you with comprehensive periodontal treatments. Part of our dental services includes a range of treatment options for gum and periodontal diseases.

How is a Periodontist Different from a Dentist?

Periodontists are also dentists but they specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating infections and diseases around the teeth, gums, and jaws. Compared to dentists who treat teeth, gums, and other areas of the mouth, periodontists are more skilled in providing treatment for complex, severe, and serious cases of gum diseases.
