Failing Dental Implants Cape Coral FL

Skilled Technique for Saving Failing Dental Implants

Are Your Dental Implants at Risk?

Dental implants carry a 98 percent success rate and rarely need to be replaced. But in a small number of cases, failing dental implants threaten a patient’s tooth replacement and oral health investment. Factors like improper placement, excess dental cement, an uneven bite and poor oral hygiene can lead to failing dental implants among Cape Coral, FL, patients. The most common cause of failing dental implants, however, is peri-implantitis. Similar to gum disease, peri-implantitis is an infection of the gums and bone surrounding a dental implant. Dr. Mauricio Martinez offers personalized consultations to identify the signs and symptoms of peri-implantitis and determine whether your implants are at risk. As a highly skilled implant dentist, he performs traditional and advanced laser peri-implantitis treatments to save failing dental implants and restore health to your smile.

Experience Matters

When it comes to dental implants, it is important to partner with a dentist skilled and experienced in implant care. This reduces the risk of failing dental implants and offers long-term success for your tooth replacement investment. Dr. Martinez is a respected Diplomate of the American Dental Implant Association and has over 15 years of experience in implant dentistry. He uses exemplary technique when performing traditional and laser peri-implantitis treatments for Cape Coral, FL, patients.

Conventional and Laser Peri-Implantitis Treatments

We offer both traditional methods and laser peri-implantitis treatment, which saves failing dental implants by eliminating diseased tissue, irritants and harmful bacteria from within implant sites. This creates a healthy environment in which tissues can reattach to the implant surface, improving health and stability for your tooth replacement. Dr. Martinez may incorporate Plasma Rich Growth Factors into peri-implantitis procedures to encourage healing and regeneration of new tissues. Bone grafting may also be integrated into care to strengthen support for implants if significant bone tissue has been lost.
