Is There An Alternative To Flap Surgery Which Is Less Painful?

I am 38 years old and have gum disease. My teeth are healthy but my gums are not. I now several ‘pockets’ and receding gums. I also now have a loose back tooth. I am desperate to see if someone can be done. I have searched lots of things on the internet. I do not really want ‘flap’ surgery as it sounds quiet traumatic! I understand that I could have laser treatment or BOST? Please could you let me know your opinion on the best treatment available? Thank you for taking the time to listen to me.
Hello and thank you for getting in touch regarding this matter. I would suggest you find a periodontist you feel completely at ease with. Make a list of all the worries and concerns you have and go through them with an experienced periodontist. BOST is something that requires more long term evidence for me to begin to recommend it as a treatment option over more traditional treatments for treating gum disease. I hope this helps. Dr Mitsas.
