New York, NY (PRWEB) June 05, 2015
Madison Avenue Periodontics is proud to now offer laser dentistry for the treatment of peri-implantitis around dental implants. Dental implants require the same care necessary for maintaining healthy, natural teeth. A bacterial infection around the post can cause considerable pain and may cause an individual to lose an implant. Drs. John Lanzetta, Chris Chondrogiannis, Alyssa Gursky, Panos Papapanou and Matthew Neary urge patients who have developed peri-implantitis to consider LAPIP®. Few periodontists in New York, NY, are qualified to offer this minimally invasive laser dentistry treatment option.
Peri-implantitis is a bacterial infection similar to the one that causes gum disease. It affects the hard and soft tissues surrounding dental implants, which allows bacteria and inflammation to cause the surrounding teeth, gums, and bone to deteriorate as well. The infection can occur because of a systemic disease, inadequate oral hygiene, teeth clenching or other risk factors. Issues with cement or loose components from an implant surgery may also lead to the inflammation associated with peri-implantitis. Experts estimate that the disease affects one out of every 10 people who receive implants, due to the frequency of incidents involving faulty products or carelessness during the surgery.
Once the disease develops, conservative treatment options such as improved oral hygiene or professional cleanings are rarely effective. Some periodontists in New York, NY, recommend oral surgery and bone grafts. However, at Madison Avenue Periodontics, the doctors are qualified to offer LAPIP® laser dentistry. This procedure uses the FDA-cleared PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to counter the damage caused by gum disease. A specially calibrated beam of light targets bacteria and infected tissue, eradicating disease and cleaning the area around the implant. Periodontists are able to effectively arrest the bone loss and decay to prevent further damage.
The periodontists at Madison Avenue Periodontics are committed to helping their New York, NY patients enjoy excellent oral health. Laser dentistry is significantly less traumatic than traditional oral gum surgery. It stimulates healthy tissue growth to encourage optimal healing and a speedy recovery.
