Peri-implantitis is a bacterial infection around the implant.
It starts as an infection at the edge of the gums and then continues to spread deeper.
The infection destroys the bone surrounding the implant. Unless treated promptly, peri-implantitis can lead to implant loss! Dr. Zimmer uses a special, minimally invasive treatment supported by a soft-laser to stop the progressive destruction of the bone.
Particularly severe conditions may also require antibiotics. Supplemental use of homeopathic remedies can also help. With these treatments, we can help you keep your implants in most cases, even if severely diseased.
