LAPIP Infected Implant Treatment

Save dental implants without surgery

Ideally, every dental implant procedure would go smoothly, but unfortunately, this is not always the case, and dental implant complications do occur. Implants can get infected the same way that the teeth can get periodontal disease. The good news is that LAPIP infected implant treatment can treat implant infections quickly and easily. It’s an advanced laser treatment that can save decaying implants with no pain or surgery.

What is LAPIP infected implant treatment?

The goal of LAPIP infected implant treatment is to treat infected dental implants by removing the infected area around the base of the implant. In addition to removing any trace of the infection, LAPIP incites gum tissue restoration.

Reasons for LAPIP infected implant treatment

If you have peri-implantitis, a bacterial infection that causes the gum and bone structure around a dental implant to become inflamed, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team in San Francisco may suggest LAPIP. The most common symptoms of this condition are red, tender gums around the implants, noticeable discharge at the implant site, severe swelling, pain when biting down, changes in gum color, and bleeding when brushing your teeth.

What does LAPIP infected implant treatment involve?

Dr. Samadian’s team will conduct a comprehensive exam to determine the rigor of the infection. If Dr. Amin Samadian and his team do not feel antibiotics will be effective in treating your infection, they’ll perform LAPIP. He’ll use a cutting-edge PerioLase® laser to target the same bacteria that leads to periodontal disease. This will allow the soft tissue around your implant to improve and the bone tissue to reconstruct itself.  

You can expect your LAPIP procedure to be completed in just 1 or 2 treatments, compared to the multiple treatments you would need if you opted for surgery.

Is LAPIP infected implant treatment painful?

One of the greatest perks of the LAPIP infected implant treatment is that it’s practically pain-free. It is minimally-invasive and doesn’t involve any scalpels, cutting, or sutures. If you do experience any distress after the treatment, over-the-counter pain relievers usually are enough to help.

What results will I see?

The LAPIP infected implant treatment can preserve your dental implants and prevent serious dental developments from occurring in the future.
