Oral Infection Does Not Have To Win

Protect Your Investment – and Your Oral Health

If you have received dental implants in Naperville, IL or the surrounding areas, you have chosen to address your tooth loss with the greatest standard for tooth replacement in use today. Implants are highly preferred over other replacement options and unique in the benefits they bring to your oral health and quality of life. When fully integrated with surrounding bone and properly supported by healthy gum tissue, dental implants effectively restore your ability to enjoy a healthy smile. However, gum and bone tissue that becomes impacted by harmful oral bacteria and other factors impede the implant’s ability to remain effective as a tooth replacement. In such cases, peri-implantitis has likely set in, and protecting the health and longevity of your implant becomes a priority.

Peri-Implantitis Places Your Implant at Risk

What is peri-implantitis, exactly? A condition involving the area immediately surrounding the dental implant, peri-implantitis progressively destroys the supporting bone and gum tissue, rendering the stability of the implant at significant risk. Following are signs and symptoms of this oral infection:

  • Redness or inflammation around the implant
  • Bleeding or pus around the implant
  • In rare cases, pain

Peri-implantitis is a serious condition that could cause you to lose your dental implant if allowed to progress. To save the implant and halt the oral infection, effective treatment must be received immediately.
