LAPIP

Peri Implantitis Long Island Treatment

What is Peri-Implantitis?

Peri-Implantitis is a newly named disease affecting an old problem.  Have you had dental implants for a long time?  Some of the common issues that arise from having implants over a period of time can include peri mucositis, peri implantitis or even malposition.  Peri-Implantitis is the inflammatory process affecting the tissue, both hard and soft tissue, around the dental implant the patient has. This inflammatory process can wreak just as much havoc to someone with dental implants as with someone who doesn’t have implants and has just natural teeth.

How can I stop Peri-Implantitis?

While there are many types of surgeries for dental implants in Long Island, using the latest technology can help you save your dental implants and reduce the issues associated with peri-implantitis and periodontitis.  A new laser, The PerioLase MVP-7 by Millennium Dental Technologies, has helped many with the Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP).  And now those with dental implants can find refuge in the Laser-Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure (LAPIP).

 

What Does This Laser Dentistry Called LAPIP Really Do?

LAPIP still uses the same laser that is used in the LANAP procedure.  The periodontist guides the laser along the gum line to remove infected tissue and bacteria.  The laser then seals the gum tissue to help stimulate the healing process.

 

What Advantages Does LAPIP Have Over Traditional Surgery?

Traditional surgery involves painful cutting and suturing of the gum line.  A modified smile and gum line usually are part of the unwanted results when having a peri-implantitis procedure in Long Island.  With the LAPIP procedure, this new laser dentistry technology throws out many of the facets associated with the traditional gum surgery.  Not only is there no cutting or suturing of the gum dental line, but healthy guy tissue is not affected by the laser, along with stimulated gum regeneration and the ability for the patient to continue on with their daily activities immediately post procedure.

Most importantly, the procedure is virtually pain free.
