Lurker79 and Aggies93, How are you guys doing after the RPE?
I am considering RPE seriously- my periodontist has given me a really long treatment plan including osseous (periodontal) surgery, bone grafts, tissue regeneration, tissue grafts on multiple teeth. My worst pocket is 7mm. All this surgery sounds excessive.
Aggies, looks like you are at the almost 1 year mark after RPE. So, this would be a good time frame for us to know about your sustained outcome with RPE. Please share if you can.
Lurker, you had yours about 2 months ago. Please share how your experience has been so far.
Also, about the 20mg Doxycycline Hyclate (or PerioStat) pills- were there any side effects of taking this for a year?View Thread
