We can often use procedures to regenerate bone loss around teeth and close “pockets” in the gum. Without sufficient bone for dental implants to attach to, they face complications that can cause them to fall out. A variety of procedures promote the regeneration of bone density in order to support long-term replacement solutions.
Chief Complaint: Carl had implants placed in the 1990s but recently was noted to have bleeding and bone loss around the last one.
Treatment Received: Since he was taking anticoagulants, we decided to do minimally invasive, laser assisted peri-implant treatment (LAPIP®), which did not require altering any of Carl’s medications. He achieved significant bone regeneration (4 threads) after one treatment and had virtually no pain or recovery time. The radiograph taken 1 year later shows a significant amount of bone regeneration.
Chief Complaint: Tonya had a recurrent periodontal pocket and bone loss on her lower first molar with many previous attempts at treatment.
Treatment Received: After considering many options, we decided to do minimally invasive, laser assisted treatment (LANAP®)). There was virtually no pain or recovery time and the radiograph taken 1 year later shows nearly complete regeneration of the bone support.
