Not another periodontal laser surgery!

Posted Nov 06 2009 10:00pm

perio laser surgery Yes. Two years ago in October I had periodontal laser surgery. I had it again this October. My periodontist and I thought my teeth would be fine because I vigilantly brush and floss regularly and get my teeth cleaned every three months.

I write my truth, so I have to tell you that I have a weak spot involving three teeth and the dreaded periodontal disease flared up again in the exact same spot. It’s been 12 days since my surgery and I’m still on soft food so I’m a bit cranky. The next step? Provisional splinting (bonding). I’ll do the research before I  get the procedure and let you know how that goes in a couple of months. It costs $100.00 a tooth.

I’m feeling a bit defeated, but I will not give up and I don’t want you to give up either if you’re experiencing gum disease. Leave a comment and let me know what your problems are and how or if you’re solving them. Here’s the link to my October 2007 periodontal laser surgery blog.

What I know for sure is that it’s all connected.
