If you have replaced any of your missing teeth with dental implants, you already know and value the importance of protecting your tooth and jaw health. Having a healthy mouth is vital to maintaining your overall health. However, bacteria can still cause great harm to your implants even after they are fully integrated with your jaw bone and supported by healthy gum tissue. If you have noticed any changes in the look, feel, or function of your dental implants you could have peri-implantitis and you must seek treatment immediately from Dr. Shaaban, your dentist in Garden Grove, CA. Contact our office today.
Peri-implantitis is an infection that causes inflammation and destroys the supporting bone structure and soft tissue surrounding dental implants. If left untreated, the infection will worsen and ultimately lead to the loss of the implants. The infection can also spread to the surrounding teeth and bone causing further tooth and bone loss as well.
Fortunately, Dr. Shaaban is able to safely and effectively treat peri-implantitis with minimally invasive laser dentistry. The precision of the dental laser removes the infected tissue from around your dental implants, decreasing the risk of implant failure and repairing the health and function of your restorations.
