Dental implants are investments in your smile, so when they become compromised from disease seeking effective treatment is imperative. We can utilize our dental laser to perform peri-implantitis treatment, which eliminates the signs of disease around the implant. Once the disease is removed, the gum tissue will be able to heal back around the implant post, as well as allow for bone to be restored. Timely treatment of peri-implantitis can save your dental implants and keep your smile intact!
A gingivectomy is usually performed when a patient has severe periodontal or gum disease that has not responded well to scaling and root planing or other periodontal procedures and is a procedure that is typically provided by a doctor. It is important to your overall health to effectively treat and control gum disease. Gingivectomies are performed to remove and reshape loose, diseased gum tissue, and to reduce the depth of pockets between the teeth and gums.
