Effective Treatment for

Peri-implantitis is one of the leading causes of failing dental implants and is characterized by symptoms similar to gum disease, causing the gums and bone to recede from the implant post. Peri-implantitis typically becomes a problem when patients do not take proper care of their oral health, but it is treatable. Our doctors are skilled at providing therapy for failing dental implants caused by peri-implantitis. By carefully removing bacteria and tartar buildup from around the implant as well as removing infected gum tissue, we can create a healthy environment for your dental implant. In some cases, we may need to reshape your jaw bone or perform bone grafting treatment to restore a solid foundation.
