A: At times periodontal disease has progressed to the point where little or no bone remains to support your natural teeth, and extractions are the best course of treatment. However, we have had success treating many teeth that other doctors have condemned. At your consultation visit, we will perform a thorough examination to determine if you are a good candidate for LAPS. Our goal is to provide predictable, long lasting results.
A: The laser is comparable to the fee for conventional periodontal surgery. It is not more because it is new technology. Our fee has actually been less than some of the offices using the conventional technique.
A: You may experience some ache, throbbing or soreness. The doctor will prescribe some pain medication to take care of any discomfort you may experience.
A: Usually one to two treatment visits and a couple of post-operative visits. Dr. Friedberg and your dentist will then prescribe visits with a hygienist every three months to keep up what he has started.
A: We do not use any special codes because it is laser. We use the same codes that every office uses.
A: We offer Care Credit Financing. It is a credit card for medical as well as dental services, which is easy to qualify for. We would be glad to assist you in the application process.
A: The doctor can answer all of your questions regarding treatment. We allow ample time during your consultation for you to ask questions. You can meet the doctor and staff and have a demonstration of the laser performed for you. You may take comfort in knowing that Dr. Friedberg uses the only laser with FDA clearance for treatment of periodontal disease.
For a limited time, Dr. Friedberg is offering a $150 credit towards any dental treatment to all new patients!
