Loose Implant due to Peri-Implantitis-Melbourne, FL
The patient presented with inflammation and a loose implant abutment and crown, due to an overgrowth of gum tissue and Peri-Implantitis. The gum tissue had become so overgrown and inflamed that it had essentially "pushed" the abutment and crown out of the implant. Using the WaterLase laser, Dr. Patel removed the overgrown tissue and bacteria around the implant surface. He was able to decontaminate and re-contour the bone that was lost due to the peri-implantitis. Finishing the treatment process with the WaterLase, Dr. Patel disinfected the original abutment and crown, so the patient was able to utilize them once again.More
