While dental implants have a 98 percent success rate, if you have noticed any of the below symptoms, your implant investment may be at risk of failure. If you are experiencing failing dental implants, you need to seek professional help immediately from the specialists in the field. At Lynn Dental Care, Dr. Brock Lynn is a board-certified periodontist who has an in-depth understanding of bone, gums, dental implants and how they all function together. We are able to treat many of the causes that lead to failing dental implants, with an emphasis on effective peri-implantitis care through the LAPIP® laser dentistry techniques.
Peri-implantitis is one of the leading causes of failing dental implants and is characterized by symptoms similar to gum disease, causing the gums and bone to recede from the implant post. Peri-implantitis typically becomes a problem when patients do not take proper care of their oral health, but it is treatable. Through LAPIP in Dallas, TX, we can carefully remove bacteria and tartar buildup from around the implant as well as remove infected gum tissue to create a healthy environment for your dental implant. This is all doable with our dental laser, which involves no scalpels, sutures or bleeding. LAPIP is silent, and vibration-free, meaning you won’t have to worry about drills or much discomfort. Best of all, it is proven to be effective at saving failing dental implants, which is why Dr. Lynn has incorporated it into our practice.
Dr. Lynn is a trained periodontist with a specialty certificate in periodontics from the prestigious Baylor University and participates in over 100 hours of continuing education yearly. With over 38 years of dental experience, our doctor and team have the knowledge and skill to handle most situations that may cause failing dental implants with our modern LAPIP treatment. During a consultation, we will identify the root cause of your problems and create a practical treatment plan to address those issues with LAPIP and ensure that your mouth and implants stay healthy.
