Peri-implantitis is a disease that can affect patients with dental implants. This condition can occur when the soft tissues around the implant become inflamed, leading to bone loss around the implant site. It’s similar to gingivitis or gum disease, but it forms around implants instead of anatomical teeth.
If left untreated, peri-implantitis can cause significant damage to the surrounding bone and can result in implant failure.
At Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists, we understand the importance of educating our patients about the potential risks associated with dental implants. That is why we take the time to thoroughly evaluate our patients to determine if they are a good candidate for implants. If we detect any signs of peri-implantitis, we will work with our patients to develop a personalized treatment plan to manage this condition.
One of the best ways to prevent peri-implantitis is through great oral hygiene habits, regular dental cleanings and routine check-ups. Our experienced team of dental professionals can help to identify early warning signs of this condition and develop an effective treatment plan.
