General dentists in the Cornwall area are trained in a wide variety of dental procedures. However, sometimes, your Cornwall general dentist will refer you to a local Cornwall specialist, or include a specialist as part of your treatment team.
Following are some of the most common dental specialties found in the Cornwall area:
Endodontists in Cornwall specialize in root canal therapy and other procedures involving the root and surrounding parts of the tooth.
Periodontists practicing in the Cornwall area treat the conditions affecting gum tissue and the bone surrounding the teeth. If you have gingivitis or more advanced periodontal disease, you may be referred to a periodontist in Cornwall.
