I had a full perio cleaning back in 2011, but failed to keep up with the maintenance. Now my dentist wants me to receive the full scaling perio treatment all over again with laser therapy which cost more. Is that necessary? I feel as though they are taking advantage of me...

  • If you have not done the maintainenace after period treatment then you have to go again for the treatment but it is your choice whether you want to go for normal procedure or lasers. With lasers though the post treatment complications are less but definately the cost is more. You can discuss with your dentist as he knows about your condition.
