Treatment for peri-implantitis is designed to remove disease and infection from around a dental implant. Usually the result of improper oral hygiene, peri-implantitis develops when bacteria from plaque and tartar buildup around dental implants infect the gum tissue. As bacteria spreads, the gum tissue will recede and expose both the implant and bone to further infection and deterioration. Using our laser therapy protocol, we can painlessly eradicate diseased tissue, bacteria, and damaged bone from around the dental implant. If bone grafting is needed to restore support, we can complete this procedure as well. With this comprehensive treatment, we can help ensure your dental implant can be saved and provide you with a healthy smile long-term.
