Safeguard Your Investment And Your Oral Health
If you have received dental implants in San Diego or surrounding areas, you have taken care to get treatment for your tooth loss with the best possible care available for tooth replacement. Today, implants are an overwhelmingly popular and accepted replacement option and offer exceptional benefits for your oral health and overall quality of life. When fully joined with surrounding bone and appropriately held by healthy gum tissue, dental implants restore your ability to enjoy a healthy smile with proven efficiency. But, the bone and gum tissue that is affected by harmful oral bacteria and other factors come in the way of the implant’s ability to continue as an effective tooth replacement. In such instances, peri-implantitis has probably set in, and protecting the longevity and health of your implant takes precedence.
Peri-Implantitis Increases Risk Of Implant Failure
Peri-implantitis is a medical and dental condition and can be identified as an oral infection involving the area surrounding the dental implant. It gradually destroys the supporting gum and bone tissue, putting the stability of the implant at significant risk. The major signs and symptoms of peri-implantitis are given below:
- Pus Or Bleeding Around The Implant
- Inflammation Or Redness Surrounding The Implant
- In Unique Cases There Is Pain
Peri-implantitis is a serious condition, which can result in loss of your dental implant if allowed to proceed without treatment. Adequate treatment must be received as soon as possible to stop the oral infection and save the implant.
