What Is Dental Implant REvision?
Dental implants offer an excellent way to replace teeth that are missing, extracted, or irreparable. Implants are generally very effective and carry a high rate of success when placed using advanced techniques and technologies. In a small percentage of cases, however, dental implants fail and do not provide the expected long-term benefits to a patient’s oral health. This may be due to improper placement, insufficient bone health, peri-implantitis (gum and/or bone infection), or a number of other causes. As exceptionally skilled periodontal and implant experts, our team at Premier Periodontics offers advanced care to help save failing dental implants using the LAPIP Protocol and other refined techniques. Get in touch with our board-certified team in Bellevue, WA right away for a dental implant revision consultation if you are experiencing problems with your implant or surrounding tissues.

"Where have these two ladies been my entire life? Maryjo and Anja at Premier Periodontics, are the absolute best dental hygienist I have ever had! I had a dentist for 35 years who died in a ski accident and I was pushed out of my comfortable dental nest, so to speak, so I had the opportunity to find a new provider. My teeth were basically well cared for and I had no periodontal needs but I wanted to be proactive and research what was available. What about gum disease? What about implants that all my friends of a certain age are talking about? So, I made an appointment at the Bellevue office of Premier Periodontics which was comfortable, friendly and welcoming but not ostentatious. I had my teeth cleaned like they have never been cleaned before, and my gums mapped for recession. The advancements in dental care were fascinating and Dr. Dkeidek throughly examined my teeth and presented a plan of how I could better care for them. He also answered my many questions thoroughly and patiently. I was to have my teeth cleaned every 4 months to prevent further plaque build-up or recession of my gums. That was it! There was no hard sell to do any advanced procedures nor pressure to sign up for a package deal. I left the office smiling with a sense of receiving the best professional dental care available."- P.S. / Google / Dec 03, 2016
"In the past 11 years I have received dental implants, laser surgery and gum grafting services from Premier Periodontal Services. Doctors Madden, Ghadri and Gilbert are all exceptionally skilled and professional. I would not hesitate to return to them for services in the future or in referring them to others. Dr Ghadri recently did some surgical gum work for me and I was impressed with the skill, minimal discomfort and positive results that I have had from the surgery. He is exceptionally knowledgable in all things periodontal. I am very thankful that, now retired, Dr James Meyers referred me to Dr Madden in 2009."- L.M. / Google / Feb 14, 2020

When Is Dental Implant Repair Needed?
Dental implant revision may be needed if you are experiencing the signs or symptoms of implant failure. Several types of conditions may lead to failed implants, including inadequate bone support, an infection similar to gum disease known as peri-implantitis, improper oral hygiene, or a poor systemic response to your implant. When this occurs, your implant or bite may feel different, or you may experience one or more of the following indications:
- Bleeding or inflammation
- Implant mobility
- Loss of bone support
- Exposed implant post
- Biting discomfort
What Is the Dental IMplant Revision Process?
Our skilled periodontists use advanced 3D imaging techniques to evaluate the state of your dental implants and support level of the gum and bone surrounding it. We may perform an advanced laser technique known as the LAPIP Protocol to alleviate any infection in the tissues surrounding the implant and stimulate the growth of bone support. Along with this approach, our surgeons may add bone grafting materials and growth factors to the implant site to strengthen its support and long-term health. In some instances, we may need to repair improperly placed implants or remove them altogether and reposition the posts using the latest in guided implant surgical techniques.
How Can I Care for My Mouth After Dental Implant Repair?
