Being trained in the LAPIP protocol gives me a solution to saving ailing and failing implants that patients cherish.
REDDING, Calif. (PRWEB) November 04, 2019
Dr. Mark Cox is now certified in the LAPIP™ protocol for ailing dental implants, a minimally invasive procedure performed with the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser. Maintaining a position on the leading edge of oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Cox can now provide favorable and predictable results to save dental implants and help regrow bone lost to peri-implantitis, as well as help decontaminate extraction sites for successful placement of new implants.
"When it comes to saving smiles, dental implants are an incredible advancement for patients," states Dr. Cox. "Unfortunately, implants do not come with a lifetime guarantee. Being trained in the LAPIP protocol gives me a solution to saving ailing and failing implants that patients cherish."
The LAPIP protocol is a first line treatment approach for failing implants or peri-implantitis as it addresses the underlying causes affecting the health of both the bone and the implant, gum disease. A fiber the width of 3 human hairs is inserted between the implant and the gum. Laser energy kills bacteria, vaporizes cement, and stimulates stems cells found in your bone to reduce the bacterial infection and promote healing.
In addition to rescuing compromised implants, the PerioLase MVP-7 is helpful in decontaminating extraction sites before the placement of a new implant, which may greatly increase the success rate of an implant by placing it in a clean and stable environment free of harmful bacteria.
