Dental implant bacterial infection

| December 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

In March 2000 I had a tooth dental implant in left lower jaw and one in right lower jaw. Gum had severely receded from left implant fully exposing the implant. Recently puss was observed in receded gum. My dentist put me on an antibiotic to kill bacteria. After antibiotic treatment area will be X-rayed.

The dentist believes infected implant will need to be removed. Is there anyway of completely killing bacteria and either saving implant or getting new one at same location?
I am 86 years old and in good health.
Please reply.
