Dental implants are highly regarded as successful replacement options for missing teeth. While they have a high success rate, some people experience complications due to inflammation, or peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is inflammation and infection of the tissues that surround an implant, and like gum disease must be treated to avoid painful and costly repercussions. Foregoing treatment can result in bone loss and severe infection.
To treat peri-implantitis, Dr. Shilpa Koneruemploys help from the LAPIP® laser protocol. This protocol uses the same laser proven to treat gum disease and is highly successful in reducing inflammation, removing bacteria and restoring health.
