Periodontol Certification & Training
Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the maintenance of health and the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease, as well as the placement of dental implants.
A Periodontist is a dentist who has completed an additional university post-graduate specialty program in Periodontics (DChDent).
A dentist must first graduate from an accredited dental school, five years, before undertaking an additional three years of advanced study within a periodontology residency training program, in order to qualify as a Periodontist.
Periodontists are trained to treat and manage various forms of gum disease through the use of both non-surgical and surgical procedures. They also perform various surgical cosmetic procedures in relation to the gums and including the placement of dental implants. Other specialized services include assessment of periodontal treatment modalities, regeneration of periodontal tissue components and bone augmentation around implants in areas of deficient bone.
Periodontists work in partnership with their Prosthodontic and Oral Surgical colleagues to aid in the planning and surgical placement of dental implants, which will then be restored by the Prosthodontist.
DChDent is the accredited specialist training program for the management of periodontal conditions and the planning and execution of oral implant therapy fulfilling the criteria for specialist recognition identified by the Dental Council of Ireland.
