LAPIP – Laser Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure
What is Peri-Implantitis?
Peri-Implantitis is a disease similar to Perioodontal Disease. It consists of an inflammatory reaction in the tissues around a dental implant, and progresses with loss of supporting bone to that implant
How predictable is the procedure?
The Periolase laser has demonstrated through clinical results that it can eliminate the inflammatory reaction in Periodontitis and Peri-Implantitis therefore allowing healthy tissue including gums and bone to regenerate.
How does the treatment work?
The Periolase laser targets and destroys the same pathogenic bacteria that cause both Periodontitis and Peri-Implantitis, while not harming the healthy tissue around the teeth. By removing the infected tissue and the bacteria present, the body has the ability to regenerate the lost tissue around teeth and implants.
