If you are one of the many people who have had a dental implant fail, you may be feeling frustrated and hopeless. You may think that your only option is to have the implant removed and go back to wearing dentures. However, there is another option: Galvosurge treatment. This innovative treatment can save implants that would otherwise have to be removed. In this blog post, we will discuss what Galvosurge is, how it works, and who is a good candidate for treatment.
Galvosurge is a new technology that is revolutionizing the way we treat failing dental implants. This minimally invasive procedure can often save implants that would otherwise need to be removed and replaced.
The GalvoSurge procedure uses a unique mode of action, creating hydrogen bubbles on the implant surface, breaking away the biofilm and leaving the implant clean and prepared for bone grafting. In other words, it “resurfaces” the implant, making it possible for your implant to be saved! The procedure is minimally invasive, pain-free, and can be done in just one visit to our office.
Before this procedure existed, implants that were losing bone had to be removed and replaced. Now, with Galvosurge, we can often save these implants and avoid the need for implant removal and replacement. This procedure is perfect for patients who have been told their implants are failing and need to be removed.
In our clinical experience, Galvosurge has helped save implants that had a severe bone loss of up to 8mm, were infected, and were considered unsalvageable.
If you have been told your implant is failing, or if you are experiencing any problems with your implant, please call our office. We would be happy to evaluate you and see if Galvosurge is right for you.
