LAPIP® Laser Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure
Dental implants are exceptional ways to restore the look of your natural smile. However, some patients experience dental problems such as peri-implantitis, a condition that affects the hard and soft tissues surrounding the implant. Peri-implantitis can lead to serious deterioration of the teeth, gums and bone adjacent to the prosthetic tooth.
To prevent further damage in patients suffering from peri-implantitis, the periodontists at our office may suggest using the laser-assisted peri-implantitis procedure (LAPIP®). This technologically-advanced solution uses lasers to deep clean and reshape the area affected by peri-implantitis with the aim to protect and enhance the patient’s oral health. When combined with proper, consistent at-home and in-office periodontal hygiene, LAPIP® can effectively stop progressive bone loss, gum inflammation, decay and more.
