Dental implants are a trusted and reliable way to restore peoples smiles when they have one or more missing teeth. In some cases, however, a condition known as peri-implantitis, characterized by symptoms such as gum swelling and irritation, can develop after dental implants are placed in the patient’s jawbone. The good news is that peri-implantitis can be treated with LAPIP™ In New York, NY.
Here is how a caring and advanced office uses the LAPIP treatment to treat patients’ peri-implantitis.
How Is My Peri-Implantitis Treated With LAPIP In New York, NY?
When gum disease causes patients to develop peri-implantitis, they can go to an experienced periodontist to get treated with LAPIP. During a LAPIP procedure, the periodontist uses LAPIP to vaporize and eradicate the infected tissue surrounding the dental implant by gently inserting the dental laser between the patients gums and teeth.
LAPIP restores and maintains the health of the patients gum tissue and bone tissue by removing harmful bacteria that has caused an infection. This is very important, because if left untreated, toxic bacteria that has infected gum tissue can travel to bone tissue or other parts of the body and can result in systemic conditions such as heart disease or stroke.
With the LAPIP dental laser, infected gum tissue is gently removed in a minimally invasive, state-of-the-art manner and eliminates the need for more invasive procedures of infected gum tissue removal, including osseous surgery, where scalpels and sutures are used. The advantages of LAPIP laser treatment are many, and include:
- No scalpels or sutures
- Minimal bleeding and pain
- Treat multiple teeth in one appointment
- Quick healing with minimal downtime
- Promotes healthy bone and gum regeneration
With the gentle and effective LAPIP, there is no reason to continue dealing with the symptoms of peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis has the potential to weaken the health of the patient’s teeth and oral structures. With the LAPIP laser, the patient’s oral health can be efficiently restored, saving their dental implants and their new, healthy smile.
