LAPIP™ Laser


a smiling LAPIP patientLAPIP stands for Laser Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure and is an alternative to traditional Flap and Osseous surgery for implants.

The procedure is for people who have gum disease around dental implants. Here are the highlights:
•  For an accurate diagnosis your dentist will have to take a full series of x-rays and evaluate the bone support around your implants.
•  Then, and this is critically important, your dentist needs to evaluate your gums by taking six measurements per implant with a periodontal probe.
•  The instrument is placed between your gum and your dental implant and a measurement is taken in millimeters. Healthy numbers are one, two and three millimeters. Anything greater than three as well as bleeding is a sign of gum disease.
•  If your dentist does not take these measurements it is time to find a new dentist. Gum disease is responsible for being the number one cause of implant loss.
•  The laser procedure, unlike traditional gum surgery, requires no cutting or amputating of the gums.
•  Since the tissue is not amputated nor peeled off the bone, no sutures are needed.
•  Patients who have gone through LAPIP treatment usually say that the day after and the week after they only have about a two on the pain scale from one to ten.
