If You have Peri Implantitis you can lose your dental implant due to inflammation that destroys the bone around the dental implant. LAPIP is a procedure that can save ailing and failing implants and save the tissue surrounding it.
Lapip (short for Laser Peri-Implantitis Treatment) is a cutting edge laser treatment to save failing dental implants. Preformed by using the MVP periolase Dental laser. The treatment involves disinfecting the dental implant and creating a healing clot around the dental implants, which calls on your body’s healing ability to produce bone around the implant and and in essence stabilizes the implant. Studies indicate 95% of the failing implants treated with the LAPIP protocol have reintegrated in the pocket and stabilized with bone growth of 3-8 threads.
LAPIP is an non-invasive procedure that helps save your dental implant. No cutting or sewing is involved since we use a special dental laser to help heal around the dental implant - therefore most patients are candidates for LAPIP. There is no need to stop or alter any medications.
Because there is no resection or reflection of a flap, the integrity of the structural tissue is retained. Thus all other future treatment options remain. The benefits of LAPIP are as follows:
LAPIP is less costly than replacing the dental implant which can cost upwards of $3000, LAPIP is a fraction of that cost.Dental insurance does not cover the procedure, however flexible spending accounts and HSA can be used. We also offer 0% financing options.
