    I need to refer somebody for implant surgery. Which speciality takes care of that: Perio or OS?

    Periodontists, prosthodontists, and oral surgeons all place implants. Some general dentists even get extra training and do implants also, but they are probably fewer in number than the specialists that do them. Which one you refer to depends on the practitioner's experience and who you like.
