Laser-Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure
The LAPIP protocol is the only patient-friendly, predictable solution for ailing implants. Studies indicate 95% of the failing implants treated with the LAPIP protocol have reintegrated in the pocket and stabilized with bone growth of 3-8 threads.
Because no resection or reflection of a vertically oriented flap is needed, the integrity of the structural tissue is retained. Thus all other future treatment options remain.
A. Perio probe indicates excessive pocket depth.
B. Laser vaporizes bacteria, diseased tissue, pathologic proteins, and titanium corrosion contaminants in soft tissue.
C. Ultrasonic scaler tips are used to remove surface accretions.
D. Bone is modified at time of surgery.
E. Laser is used to form a stable fibrin blood clot containing stem cells from bone.
F. Adhesion to clean surface, with a stable fibrin clot at the gingival crest to create a ‘closed system’.
G. Occlusal trauma is adjusted.
H. New attachment is regenerated.
The LANAP protocol is a minimally invasive gum disease treatment that uses a specific dental laser, the PerioLase® MVP-7™.
The LAPIP protocol is the only patient-friendly, predictable solution for ailing implants.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue grafts are used to stop gum recession and/or to improve the esthetics of your gum line.
We provide single and multiple teeth dental implants based on your needs.
To fix too much gum tissue, we perform a dental crown lengthening procedure.
