CE: Repairing an Apical Lesion Around a Dental Implant
Timothy Kosinski, DDS, MAGD; and Stephanie Tilley, DMD
When an implant is experiencing late failure, treatments are often attempted to halt the disease process and salvage the failing implant. This article examines the efficacy of such treatments, reviews the different types of dental lasers and their applications, and discusses the use of the soft-tissue diode laser to decontaminate the surfaces of infected implants and their surrounding sites. The potential benefits of laser therapy to healing are discussed, and a case is presented that demonstrates the use of a diode laser and grafting materials to salvage a dental implant with an apical defect that developed a fistula to the oral environment.
