Peri-implantitis is an infection of the gums and bone surrounding a dental implant. Similar to gum disease, peri-implantitis can lead to degeneration of the bone tissue that supports your implant, infection developing in the gum tissue surrounding it and the ultimate failure of the implant itself. With timely treatment of peri-implantitis by a skilled periodontist like Dr. Lopez, we can save your implant investment and get your mouth back to a healthy state.
As a periodontal practice, we specialize in soft tissue treatments of the mouth, including frenectomies, gingivectomies and crown lengthening treatment. The soft tissues of the mouth are sensitive and require a specialist touch to ensure accurate, gentle care. These soft tissue treatments will get your mouth on the path to health and beauty.
This is an advanced technique that assists in proper bone regeneration for bone grafting procedures. As the name implies, we can help guide your jaw bone grafts to their proper place as it heals. Guided tissue regeneration prevents the gum tissue from interfering with the bone graft and ensures a healthy rebuilding of the bone.
