As The Dental Lounge team, we make it a point to offer detailed and encouraging guidance to our patients and encourage you to consider all your options before committing to any dental procedure. This is why we have introduced the Lapip protocol for peri-implantitis treatment and also the reason we want you to know more about it. The LAPIP protocol is a minimally invasive laser treatment that uses the PerioLase MVP-7 laser to help save your dental implant.
What Is Peri-Implantitis?
If you have or are considering getting a dental implant, you need to know what peri-implantitis is. It is when the area surrounding the implant is infected. The symptoms of this include receding, inflamed, or red gums. If you are experiencing these signs, we encourage you to book an appointment as this infestation can lead to bone loss as well as the loss of the implant.
Another infection involving dental implants is peri-mucositis. The difference between these two conditions is that while both are infections around the implant, peri-mucositis is the beginning stages of the condition and not as progressed as peri-implantitis.
If this condition is not treated, the infection will keep spreading and even destroy bone. Due to the trauma, the implant will eventually fall out, and the peri-implantitis can spread to the surrounding team.

What Does The Procedure Look Like?
We believe that knowledge is power. To help our clients have a better understanding of what to expect, we have laid out the steps for this protocol. This procedure is a great alternative to other invasive surgical options.
Step 1: The Periolase dental laser vaporizes any contaminants, diseased tissue, bacteria, and any titanium corrosion that may have occurred near the implant.
Step 2: Next, the laser will ensure that there is a stable blood clot in the area affected in Step 1. This clot will contain activated stem cells extracted from your bone which will form a seal.
Step 3: Bite trauma is adjusted.
Step 4: Your implant can now be re-integrated into the bone.
Can The Infection Be Prevented?
The causes that have been linked to peri-implantitis include teeth grinding as well as poor dental health and care. The best way to prevent this infection in your implant is to consult your dentist and always take care to do your utmost to maintain good oral health.
