Question:
Which type of dentist to see first? I have receding gums, bone loss due to missing teeth, and may need root canals in same area.

What do I take care of first? Who do I see? ... Visitor from Texas

Answer:
Getting a consult or two with a Periodontist or an Implant Dentist with a substantial treatment history would make the most sense at this point. Tissue conditions (both bone AND gum tissue) should be paramount.

If a Periodontist specialist is not available, consider consulting with a Prosthodontist. Getting Root Canal Treatments before establishing tissue health conditions could lead to a considerable waste of treatment costs.
