Plaque and tartar that form beneath the surface of your dental crown, around your implant, in in your gum tissue can harbor harmful oral bacteria. Accumulating bacteria will produce a rampant infection if it’s not removed.
Implant infection treatment targets the vulnerable tissue areas surrounding your dental implant. The area is cleaned, treated with a disinfecting solution, and, if necessary, with antibiotics.
The procedure also checks for any bone tissue damage. Further treatment of your implant site could be necessary to determine if your bone will reattach to your implant following infection treatment.
