Fractional Laser Treatment After Dental Implant

There are no contraindications to laser skin resurfacing after a dental implant.  This goes for regular CO2 laser and chemical peels as well.  As a matter of fact there are almost no containdications for facial cosmetic procedures after a dental implant.  Aas a board certified dual degree oral & maxillofacial surgeon I often combine the dental implant procedures along with facial cosmetic procedures for a true facial and smile rejuvenation

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Laser Resurfacing is my gold standard to remove wrinkles and it works! Fractional CO2 is a step down and gives variable results depending on the manufacturer, energy level and skill of the surgeon. I have many patients who crossover from the dental side of my practice to the facial cosmetic side and so have a lot of experience in this area.

There are NO side effects to have a skin procedure on your dental implants or dental work. I even use my laser to contour the oral soft tissue when needed and this also has no ill effects.

Fractional CO2 laser for face treatment

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Fractional CO2 laser applied to the skin of the face has no effect on the intra-oral tissue, gum, teeth, dental implants or crowns. There is no research that shows any possible side effects on intra-oral implants or crowns.

Is there any contra indication to having facial laser and implants

No documented contra- indication up to now has been observed.  .Implants are titanium posts embedded in the bone. It is as if you had metal crowns, metal fillings.

Agree, I am not aware of any side effects of Co2 laser to the teeth, implants or any other dental restorations such as crowns and fillings.

There is no documented interaction between facial laser treatments like Fraxel and dental restorations and dental implants.   Hope this helps.
