The specialty of Periodontology or simply, Periodontics, is the specialty of dentistry that studies and treats the supporting and surrounding structures of teeth, and its substitutes. It is one of only two dental specialties that has been recognized by the ADA for surgically  training dentist to manipulate the gum tissue and bone tissue in dental care in the US. So naturally periodontists have became the leaders in Dental Implantology in procedures like dental implant placement, bone grafting, soft tissue grafting and sinus lifts and so on.

Not only that, Periodontist have been treating periodontitis of natural teeth since the dawn of antibiotics, so their research and knowledge of treating such bacterial-induced diseases have automatically became relevant for modern day treatment, care, and maintenance of artificial dentition, as in dental implants and its subsequent treatment of peri-implantitis. 

These are the reason, even though General Practicing Dentist may place dental implants surgically, it is a general recommendation that difficult cases are referred to surgically trained dental specialist.
