Peri-implantitis is one of the leading causes of failing dental implants and is characterized by symptoms similar to gum disease, including gum and bone recession around the implant post. Peri-implantitis typically becomes a problem when patients do not take proper care of their oral health, but it is treatable. We are skilled in providing therapy for failing dental implants caused by peri-implantitis. By carefully removing bacteria and tartar buildup from around the implant as well as removing infected gum tissue, we can create a healthy environment for your dental implant. In some cases, we may need to reshape your jaw bone or perform bone grafting treatment to restore a solid foundation.
