LAPIP stands for laser-assisted peri-implantitis procedure. It is a surgical procedure that uses a specialized laser to target and eliminate the bacteria causing inflammation and infection in the gum tissues surrounding dental implants. By removing these harmful bacteria, LAPIP can help to reduce inflammation, promote gum tissue regeneration and prevent bone loss around the implant.
If you are experiencing gum inflammation, swelling or bleeding around your dental implant, LAPIP may be the right treatment for you. The procedure is minimally invasive and generally causes little to no discomfort for the patient.
During a LAPIP procedure, our skilled dentist will utilize a specialized perio probe to examine the depth of the pockets between your teeth and gums. By utilizing the power of laser technology, the diseased tissue and bacteria will be eradicated and a sterile environment will be established. An ultrasonic scaler will then be employed to remove any accumulated plaque or tartar. Once the affected area has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, the laser will once again be utilized to create a stable blood clot that will seal off the treated area and promote healing.
After the procedure, patients can expect to experience minimal discomfort and will be provided with post-operative instructions to aid in a speedy recovery. With LAPIP, our team can help restore the health of your gums and keep your dental implant functioning properly for years to come.
Do not wait to take care of your dental health. Schedule an appointment with Mid Town Dental Services today and learn more about how LAPIP treatment can benefit you. Our friendly and knowledgeable team is here to answer any questions you may have and provide you with the best possible care.
