MONROE, Conn., May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Noted periodontist, Dr. Richard Amato,
LAPIP has become a gold standard of care for those with peri-implantitis in Monroe, CT as well as internationally. This condition occurs when the soft tissues around the dental implant post become swollen and infected with an abundance of bacteria. Without intervention, the infection will continue to destroy healthy gums, eventually leading to the loss of dental implants.
Peri-implantitis indicators may be mild or severe. Early warnings include bleeding gums, sensitive gums, pus emanating from around the dental implant, and loose dental implants. Persons experiencing these sensations should contact a periodontist immediately as peri-implantitis will not go away on its own.
To stop the spread of bacteria, reduce the risk of complete dental implant failure, and restore the mouth to a healthy level, Dr. Amato uses a minimally invasive laser-based technique to rid the area of destructive bacteria. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, used in the LAPIP technique, enables him to comfortably and precisely resolve peri-implantitis. In addition, high-end computer software helps guide this procedure. To date, LAPIP has a 95 percent success rate for patients.
Dr. Amato welcomes individuals with dental implants who feel they may have peri-implantitis in Monroe, CT as well as Danbury, Newtown and Fairfield County. Self-referrals are accepted and do not need prior authorization from a dental provider unless expressly necessitated by insurance. Appointments at The Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut can be made by calling 203-712-0917.
