If you are a patient that has had an implant with another practice or dental clinician and are suffering from pain, bleeding gums, and discomfort it’s important to seek help. We are happy to discuss your symptoms and treat you.
These symptoms are often an indication that there could be the presence of a condition associated with implants called Peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is an inflammation of the soft tissues around a dental implant, leading to bone loss.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can mean for some patients tooth loss. On some occasions, patients may be offered to have an implant to replace the tooth. A dental implant is a procedure where an exact match of your tooth is surgically implanted into the gum.
For patients who have suffered the loss of a tooth, we do provide dental implants but only if the gums are healthy and in the best possible condition. We ensure gum health is at its optimum using our laser-guided gum disease treatment
Patients who need this treatment, have often lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. If a patient receives an implant and the periodontal disease has not been managed using laser-guided therapy, Peri-implantitis can occur.
Peri-implantitis is a painful condition and it must be treated. The soft tissues around a dental implant become inflamed, due to the bad bacteria caused by periodontal disease, being active in and around the implant. These bacteria can not only cause, pain and infection, but they contribute to bone loss.
Sadly this condition is common because the periodontal bacteria have not been removed and managed correctly before the procedure. We often treat patients who are in this situation, but thankfully because of our expertise and unique laser-guided therapy treatment, we can care for you and create a treatment plan to restore health.
