LAPIP Failing Implant Treatment - Greenacres, FL
Tackling Failing Dental
LAPIP™ Can Save
Dental implants are the gold standard solution for missing teeth. For most patients, they last a lifetime. However, a bacterial infection called peri-implantitis can lead to failing dental implants, harming the investment that you’ve made in your smile. At Ferber Dental Group, our team has extensive experience treating peri-implantitis in Greenacres, FL. With the Laser Assisted Peri-Implantitis Protocol (LAPIP), we can target and treat infected gum tissue around your implants. LAPIP is the least invasive therapy for failing dental implants, leaving you with a healthy smile again!
How Does LAPIP Work?
Once we diagnose peri-implantitis, we’ll use a small probe to check the depth of your gums’ pockets. Our specially tuned laser vaporizes bacteria, corrosion, and diseased tissue without requiring large incisions or sutures. Dr. Fatemeh Gholami will also ultrasonically scale the surface of your implants and their posts. After this is finished, we use the laser to clot the blood around the site, creating an enclosed system that allows your gums to heal quickly and naturally.
What Can Cause
Failing Dental Implants?
- Bacterial infection of the gums
- Lack of bone density impairing osseointegration
- Poor implant placement
- Smoking or tobacco use
- Reduced blood flow to the implant area
The Process of Preserving
LAPIP uses laser technology to target and remove infected tissues, bacteria, and debris around the implant site. The focused laser energy targets and eliminates infected tissue, bacteria, and debris around the implant site. This meticulous approach promotes rapid healing, reduces inflammation, and stimulates the regrowth of healthy tissue, facilitating the reattachment of gum tissue to the implant surface.
LAPIP is a minimally invasive and efficient solution, often obviating the need for more invasive surgical interventions. This innovative procedure ensures implant preservation while restoring optimal oral health and promoting a swift return to comfort and confidence.
