Carol is a 71 year old patient of Stoner Periodontic Specialists in Columbus, Ohio. She was referred to Dr. Stoner by her dentist because she was suffering from gum recession and had developed very deep pockets in her gums. Due to her gum disease, her gums were starting to pull away from the tooth, letting bacteria come in contact with the bone.
Carol chose Dr. Stoner because she had laser peridontal surgery in the past and wanted to find a periodontist who performed that procedure in Columbus. During her laser periodontal therapy, Carol experienced no pain and didn’t use any sedation. She wanted to see what was going on!
“There are a lot of people walking around who need this procedure, but for whatever reason don’t have it, mostly because they’re scared of the word laser. I can assure you it is not a bad experience at all,” says Carol. “I would tell anybody, no matter what age, that this is absolutely painless.”
Carol compared visiting Dr. Stoner’s office to a day at the spa. “The whole staff is wonderful. They all seem to have one goal in mind and that is to make the patient comfortable.”
