New Surgical Prep May Diffuse Dental Implant Time Bomb

( — June 19, 2019) Maricopa, AZ — 500,000 people now have at least one dental implant and may not know their jaw harbors a bacterial infection waiting to explode.  Could Peri-Implantitis be a dental implant time bomb?

“That’s why top tier dentists and medical providers are rushing to research a new surgical prep to stop future bone and implant tooth loss,” cites Leona Meditz, founder of HCP Wellnet, a network of health care professionals sponsoring the research.

Periodontal disease causes tooth loss by attacking the bone holding the tooth in place. Peri-implantitis is periodontal disease bacteria that attacks the bone surrounding the implanted tooth causing implant loss.  A ten-year study published in the National Institute of Health found that “The incidence of peri-implantitis was 28.6% in patients with a history of periodontitis, and 5.8% in those patients without a history of the disease”.

Meditz reasoned that if both Periodontal disease and Peri-Implantitis share the same bone destroying bacteria, then reducing that bacteria in the mouth before and after surgery should greatly reduce dental implant loss.  Her protocol includes Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy, Scaling and Root Planing and Clean Kiss Organic Oral Care Products with anti-inflammatory and bone support supplements.  The 30 Second Smile™ toothbrush and Hydrofloss™ oral irrigator are also used.

Dr. Suhail Mati, president elect of the Midwest American Academy of Implant Dentists, agreed with her hypothesis.  Dr. Mati has been using this new protocol with great success.  He encouraged Ms. Meditz to present her findings at the upcoming AAID scientific meeting in October 2019.

Ronald McGlennen, MD, founder of Oral DNA-Access Labs will monitor results. Dr. McGlennen is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and also by the American Board of Medical Genetics, with a Specialty in Clinical Molecular Genetics. He is internationally recognized as an expert in Molecular Biology and Genetics and developed the genetic testing to quantify 11 pathogenic bacteria before and after therapy used in this study.
