Treatment Options in [CITYSTATE]
Peri-implantitis can quickly cause damage to the tissue and bone supporting the implant, if left untreated. The risk of losing the implant and the attached crown is also likely. Removing the infection is imperative to restoring oral health and preventing the loss of the implant and surrounding tissue.

Common treatment options include removing the bacterial plaque with surgical or non-surgical options. Laser therapy is becoming increasingly popular, which is a minimally-invasive way of effectively eradicating harmful bacteria while keeping healthy structures intact. Check with our doctor to see if this is an option for you. Additional procedures such as bone grafting may also be required if a significant amount of bone has been lost.
