Doctors at Bivens Periodontics
Paul W Bivens, D.D.S.
I saw Dr. Bivens for a gingival graft. I was under the impression that the worst-care scenario was that the graft wouldn't take. However, that was incorrect, because not only did the graft not take, but it made the recession WORSE. I feel that these sorts of risks should be more clearly communicated before a patient undergoes a recommended but unnecessary surgery. Dr. Bivens said he would re-do it for free, but I'd rather find another periodontist than risk further worsening of my gum tissue, which may eventually lead to tooth loss (and I'm still in my 20s!)
