Patient Comments: Oral Health and Bone Disease - Concerns

What are your particular concerns regarding low bone density in your jaw and dental health issues?

Comment from: Jane s, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: July 23

I have had laser gum pocket treatment with multiple infusions of Arestin. I have scaling and cleaning every 3 months with Arestin infusions for deep pockets. I am concerned that the disease process continues even with this treatment. I have had headaches and tachycardia after the last two infusions so I assume I shouldn't have more. So what's next?
