Nash Family Dentistry in Vicksburg, MS provides patients with hope that peri-implantitis can be reversible and that treatment can be relatively painless through the use of laser dentistry.
VICKSBURG, Mass., July 02, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The dentists of Nash Family Dentistry in Vicksburg, MS now welcome new patients for minimally invasive laser peri-implantitis treatment. A more efficient and gentle solution, peri-implantitis treatment assisted by laser technology saves patients' dental implants without scalpels, incisions, or sutures. While traditional treatment involves cutting the gums to properly remove bacteria, laser dentistry offers a less invasive and more comfortable alternative to saving dental implants.
Peri-implantitis is the infection of the tissues surrounding a dental implant. Over time, peri-implantitis can damage the hard and soft tissues surrounding the implant and lead to implant failure. Dental implants are placed to serve as a permanent replacement for missing teeth. However, if a patient experiences peri-implantitis and does not treat it, this puts the permanency of a dental implant in danger.
Laser technology provides an opportunity for Drs. Kenneth Nash and Jonathan Nash to use more conservative methods than are possible with a scalpel. Drs. Nash use their BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus® laser to gently treat numerous soft tissue conditions at Nash Family Dentistry. This laser combines water, air and laser energy to target harmful bacteria and remove infected tissue while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Plus, the laser is so easy on gum tissue that sedation dentistry is frequently not required. Patients experience the same or better results with this precise, scalpel-free solution over traditional counterparts.
The advantages of laser peri-implantitis treatment include the ability to:
- Avoid damage to implant surfaces
- Improve the speed and accuracy of treatment
- Encourage faster wound healing
- Remove bacterial growth on the implant's surface
- Avoid cutting the gums as required in traditional solutions
"There are three things we want to focus on in dentistry," Dr. Kenneth Nash explains while discussing the advantages of laser treatments. "We want to be kinder, gentler, and more efficient for the patient. That's what the laser accomplishes."
