/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Respected periodontists, Drs. Richard Amato
and Michael Kang
, are saving dental implants in Bridgeport, CT
from failure after they are affected by peri-implantitis. When a dental implant and the area around it becomes infected from bacteria, patients are at risk of implant failure, meaning their dental implant will have to be removed. Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut
offers leading peri-implantitis treatment through gentle LAPIP™ laser dentistry.
"It's very important for me to come here knowing that Dr. Amato is always up on the new and latest technology, and he will use whatever technology I am most comfortable with," says Elizabeth, a patient at Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut
. "He's very good at promising there will be no pain, and he delivers on his promise."
Patients who are suffering from gum disease around a dental implant are affected by peri-implantitis. This is a common condition that causes gum tissue to pull away from a dental implant, often exposing the titanium threads. Without timely treatment by experienced periodontists, patients can run the risk of implant failure as the jawbone deteriorates and the implant has minimal support. When an implant fails, it will have to be removed and a new implant will have to be placed. However, LAPIP laser dentistry provides a minimally invasive solution to peri-implantitis.
LAPIP laser treatment for peri-implantitis is so revolutionary for dental care because it simply uses gentle laser light to remove bacteria and infected tissue. There are no scalpels or sutures required, minimal bleeding and patients report virtually no pain. Traditional treatment for peri-implantitis involves surgically cutting away the infected tissue, then cleansing the area and suturing the gums back around the teeth. With LAPIP, the laser gently eliminates bacteria within the tissue that surrounds a dental implant. Once the bacteria are eliminated, the healthy tissue surrounding the implant is able to reattach and provide a solid foundation again.
Drs. Amato and Kang strive to help patients preserve their implant investment. LAPIP treatment for peri-implantitis is not only safe and comfortable for patients, but also affordable. This team of trained periodontists can save dental implants placed by any doctor if the condition is caught and treatment begins as soon as possible. Extensively trained in dental implants, the jawbone and gum tissue, Drs. Amato and Kang are adept at saving dental implants as well as placing them.
