Why do there seem to be conflicting opinions on the best way to treat my gum disease?


Sorry it has been a confusing time for you, but there will always be differences of opinion in healthcare.

The approach of one dentist versus another often relates to their training, their further qualifications, their experience and previous results. Sadly it also includes some of their cognitive biases and long-held misconceptions.

Professionals are human too, and none of us know everything.

Regardless you are doing the right thing in researching, informing yourself and taking control. Often we find that those who don’t care don’t win the battle, so are resigned to the fate of losing their teeth.

Still not sure?
