Peri-Implantitis Treatment - St. Johns, MI

Focused on Effective Peri-Implantitis Care

We Can Save Your Smile

While dental implants have a 98 percent success rate, there are still situations that can cause them to fail, like peri-implantitis, lack of bone volume, or trauma. If you are experiencing symptoms of failing dental implants, you need to seek care from our experienced St. Johns, MI team immediately. We treat peri-implantitis using the REPAIR Implant™ protocol from BIOLASE®, a leader in dental laser technology. This protocol uses patented laser technology to provide more precise and predictable treatment for peri-implantitis. Dr. Mark Connelly is clinically trained in the use of this dental laser and helps patients preserve the integrity of their dental implant before returning to optimal oral health.

The Leading Cause of Failing Dental Implants

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.
