Peri-Implantitis Is A Form of Gum Disease that Can Compromise the Integrity of Dental Implants

Dr. William Wang Discusses Peri Implantitis & Gentle Laser Gum Treatment

Expert Treatment for Peri-implantitis

Peri-implantitis is to dental implants what gum disease is to natural teeth. When untreated, the bacterial infection around your new implant can cause the attached bone structure to shrink away, leaving the implant mobile and susceptible to falling out. It is usually due to an unhealthy oral environment, untreated periodontal disease in adjacent teeth, or poor oral hygiene.

As periodontal health specialists, Drs. William Wang and Thomas Lin offer comprehensive laser dentistry treatments for peri-implantitis. Thanks to fast and effective solutions with a gum disease expert, you can preserve your implants and the investment you’ve made in your smile. If left untreated, peri-implantitis will ultimately result in the failure of the implants involved. To lower your risk of developing such conditions, we recommend a stringent oral hygiene routine as well as treating active periodontal disease prior to beginning any type of dental implant treatment.

Symptoms of Peri-implantitis

Treating peri-implantitis is something that usually extends outside of a general dentist’s scope of care or experience. Because the condition occurs less frequently than other types of gum infections, it often requires the attention of a periodontal specialist for a successful outcome. Our doctors have invested in state-of-the-art laser dentistry technology, making gingival treatments gentler, more effective, and improving the recovery time for our patients.
