Protect Your Investment
If you are among the millions of people with missing teeth and have found relief through dental implants, we are happy that you have invested in your smile and your health. You have a new-found confidence and have been enjoying an increased quality of life since replacing your missing teeth. Now it is vital to protect that investment and learn how to recognize the threat of peri-implantitis.
What is Peri-Implantitis?
Peri-implantitis is a bacterial infection that causes inflammation of the soft tissue and bone surrounding a dental implant. An implant that has already integrated into your jaw bone can become infected and loosen to the point of falling out. Fortunately, our team of periodontists at Florida Institute for Periodontics and Dental Implants effectively treat peri-implantitis in a procedure called LAPIP™. Using an innovative dental laser we can eradicate the diseased tissue while preserving and regenerating healthy bone to reintegrate with your implant.
Seek Treatment Immediately
Do not lose the investment of your implants to peri-implantitis. It is imperative to treat your peri-implantitis as soon as we are aware of the condition to prevent disease from spreading and risk losing your dental implant. Our minimally-invasive laser dentistry options will make restoring the function of your implants comfortable and convenient. Call our office to schedule your consultation today!
