How Do I know I Have Peri-Implantitis?
The gums and connective tissues around people’s dental implants may grow irritated and infected over time. This is known as peri-implantitis and is an extremely uncomfortable situation that must be expertly addressed. If a person’s peri-implantitis is not immediately addressed by a trained periodontist in Monroe, CT, then they may be at risk of losing their dental implants and/or experiencing lasting problems in the affected area.
Key symptoms of peri-implantitis include:
- Swelling of the gums around the dental implant.
- Pus coming from the gums around the dental implant.
- Bleeding from the gums around the dental implant.
When people experience any of these symptoms following the placement of their dental implants, a skilled periodontist may recommend a comfortable, modern treatment, such as the LAPIPTM laser dentistry protocol, to fully remedy these symptoms and restore the health of their gums.
How Does The LAPIPTM Dental Laser Protocol Help A Periodontist Treat Peri-Implantitis?
The LAPIP dental laser protocol is a revolutionary method to treat peri-implantitis (infection of the soft tissues around dental implants) that is proven, safe, and very effective with minimal pain or discomfort. The LAPIP laser dentistry treatment is just one example of the state-of-the-art, modern technology used by a high-quality periodontist.
During the LAPIP laser dentistry process, the knowledgeable periodontist will remove the infected gum tissue, which is caused by bacteria that has become trapped in the area underneath the dental prosthesis, fully eliminating the inflammation, pain, and discomfort associated with peri-implantitis.
The LAPIP dental laser protocol causes minimal bleeding and is used to seal up the surgical area to ensure no bacteria can become produced in the treated area. It protects the patients gums from additional damage, preserving the health of their gums and the integrity of their dental implants. Using the LAPIP dental laser protocol eliminates the need for sutures or stitches.
It also improves and speeds up the healing process because the laser only targets infected gum tissue, while protecting surrounding healthy gum tissue. The LAPIP dental laser protocol is a predictable way for the periodontist to ensure the patients dental implant investment is fully restored and can last a lifetime with proper dental hygiene.
