Peri-Implantitis: The #1 Threat to Your Dental Implants
Your Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime, but Peri-Implantitis Puts Them at Risk
With a success rate as high as 98%, dental implants are a highly reliable tooth replacement option, but given the right set of circumstances, there is one condition that can affect their long-term longevity – peri-implantitis. This inflammatory condition (similar to gum disease) affects the tissues and structures surrounding your dental implants, causing:
Red and inflamed gum tissue
Deep pockets around the dental implants
Protect Yourself Against Dental Implant Failure
Peri-implantitis is a destructive inflammatory process that affects both the soft and hard tissues supporting a dental implant. Left untreated, it can cause damage to the gums, bones and other structures, eventually leading to dental implant failure. Thankfully, because this condition is avoidable with proper care, oral hygiene and guidance from Dr. Daren Becker, your investment in dental implants can still last a lifetime with the right treatment.
Seek Help with Effective Restorative Treatment
Once your dental implants have been affected by peri-implantitis, treatment is absolutely necessary to save them. Dr. Becker has over 19 years of experience in restorative dentistry, with his expertise extending to the treatment of peri-implantitis to protect your long-term investment in permanent tooth replacement. Typical treatment involves:
Eliminating bacterial plaque
Removal any diseased tissues
Regenerative therapy to reverse bone loss and allow gum tissue to re-attach to the tooth structure
