Any longterm succcess stories with laser gum treatment?

My dentist wants to send me to a dentist that does laser gum treatment. I want to see if anyone has had longterm success stories with this type of treatment for pockets.

Thanks
Kellywoo

Re: Any longterm succcess stories with laser gum treatment?

Hello again -
I was so hoping someone might have information in regard to this laser treatment for deep pockets. I understand it is a very new treatment, since 1997. Anyone have any luck with it?
Thank you,
kellywoo

Re: Any longterm succcess stories with laser gum treatment?

Hi,

I had it done in October, and am currently in the midst of the 6 month waiting period to see how much good it's done. I had 2 teeth done, as they had pockets and bone loss as they were adjacent to spaces where teeth had been removed years ago during orthodontic treatment. After 6 months, they will probe and see how much improvement there is, but the dentist is very hopeful--has even successfully done it on his own mom!

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Good morning-
Thank you for your information. I know this is pretty new treatment out there, I just do not want to cause more harm then good. I also have tmjd, which also is an issue. Say, do you know how long ago he did the treatment on his mom?
I hope you have a great New year

I don't know how long ago he did it.

I have TMJD, as well. Had a big flare from having my mouth open for the procedure.

Good luck.
