This treatment boasts a high success rate and may help you maintain that beautiful smile for life.

We Save Dental Implants
You can develop peri-implantitis as a result of poor oral hygiene or as a side effect of certain diseases.
Undergoing laser treatment for peri-implantitis can reduce the risk of bone loss around the implants, and also lower the risk of developing health problems linked to oral bacteria. The same laser used to treat gum disease can be used to treat the tissues surrounding a dental implant with a very successful outcome.
Laser therapy for patients with peri-implantitis is relatively painless and can be performed as an in-office procedure.
What If I Choose Not To Be Treated Now?
Treating the tissues at the appropriate time can preserve the dental implant and reduce the risk of bone loss.
If the extent of the bone loss is too great, bacteria in the mouth can increase the risk of health problems as oral bacteria enters the bloodstream. Bacteria in the bloodstream has been linked to a number of systemic illnesses and fatal diseases of the organs.
Early treatment is necessary to preserve the health of the patient and also prevent extensive bone loss.
