Solve My Problem: Using a laser to return stability to failing implants

Dental Products Report, Dental Products Report November 2019, Volume 53, Issue 11

The Problem

Dental implants can be an ideal treatment, but peri-implantitis can put implant stability and treatment success at risk

Peri-implantitis is an inflammation in the gingiva around the site of a dental implant, and when untreated it can lead to bone loss around the implant, eventually jeopardizing implant stability.

The Solution

PerioLase® MVP-7™ and the LAPIP Protocol

  • The LAPIP protocol is a tissue-sparing, regenerative approach to treating peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis using the PerioLase MVP-7

  • The LAPIP protocol targets diseased tissue leaving native tissues intact and removes metal corrosion contaminants in soft tissue walls

  • Creates a clean, sealed, closed environment for wound healing and True Bone Regeneration

  • Immediate treatment to resolve the infection with less pain, less bleeding and less swelling

  • Probe depth reductions via regeneration, not resection

  • Maintain crestal tissue height and increase crestal bone mass around implant

  • No foreign biologics, no exogenous growth factors, no bone grafts, no artificial membranes, no sutures and no scaffolding
