You are in the city that is the home of the Millennium periodontal laser, the PerioLase.
This machine provides a means of treating periodontal
disease without cutting away the gum tissue and is capable of regenerating bone.
I would suggest a consult with a dentist who uses this technique. You can start with a referral from their website, _www.millenniumdental.com (http://www.millenniumdental.com). They look for volunteer patients for this procedure for classes that they teach in Cerritos. I would not recommend
being a volunteer, but looking for an instructor in this technique to see if they can help you without surgery, extractions, or implants.
Good luck with this.
