I visited a periodontist who recommends laser therapy in 3 quadrants even if only 4 teeth has high readings between 5 and 8 and the rest low reading 1, 2, 3. Also recommends bite adjustment which I don't want because my teeth are very sensitive. I don't grind, clench my teeth. I had braces twice, my bite if not perfect should be better than average after braces. For braces the orthodontist remove the 4 bicuspids and could not close some gasp and he explained that in order to maintain a good bite he could not close the gaps. The periodontist who also does implants, says he would not treat me with the laser therapy unless I agree to do the bite adjustment. Is a bite adjustment part of the laser therapy and not optional? It that means I can't have a laser therapy without a bite adjustment? Can I have laser treatment only on the teeth with high reading? What do you recommend to treat my 4 teeth with high reading?View Thread
