Yes, we have pioneered the treatment of infected implants with the Laser Assisted Peri-implant Procedure (LAPIP). This procedure has the potential to stop the infection and sometimes regenerate bone. (See appendix) In more severe cases, bone grafting can be tried.
Treatment success on infected implants is variable but the implants can usually be maintained for years. Severely infected implants may need to be removed. The site can then be bone grafted and later a new implant can be placed if desired.
