Question:
My teeth are not loose but I do have sore gums sometimes. I just had a scaling and was told I should have bone grafts on both sides and top and bottom.

This makes me very nervous. Is it necessary since my teeth are not even loose? ...Visitor from FL

Answer:
It sounds like you have bone loss issues.

To confirm the need and efficacy of bone graft treatments, consult a Periodontist. If the recommendation was made by a periodontist, then get a consult from a Prosthodontist with 15+ years experience.

The window for treatment success in these types of situations is a often a short one.... wait too long and you may lose your candidacy for being a bone graft patient. Usually, when the teeth become loose, it is too late for bone graft procedures.

The use of a PerioLase is popular for treating loose teeth.
