Peri-implantitis is an inflammation of the mucosa (gums) around the implant with loss of supporting bone. These infected implants can be lost if the proper treatment is not provided. Drs. Lincks, Demetter, and Florence have successfully treated numerous ailing and failing implants using the most up-to-date treatment modalities currently available. If your dental implant is showing signs of failure, call our office for an evaluation and treatment. Below is an example of an implant successfully treated for peri-implantitis.
