Even though millions of Americans live with gum disease, many don’t visit the dentist to get help, which is not good. Gum disease can also cause other health complications such as diabetes, heart disease, pancreatic cancer, and low birth weight in babies. Many people feel like it is just inconvenient, but if left untreated, it can cause a lot of other problems.
Though treatment used to be painful, new technologies have really made a difference. In the past, treatment required dental surgery, in which we would have to cut and remove some of your gums and even some of your teeth. Dentures and dental implants were needed for missing teeth. However, with the new technology that is available now, we have a more precise alternative. We are proud to offer PerioLase® MVP-7™ and the LANAP® protocol.
LANAP,® which is short for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, uses a very precise PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser. This allows us to give our patients a less invasive treatment that is more acute.
We are able to kill the bacteria that cause gum disease while also removing the damaged gum tissue. It also allows us to reattach the healthy tissue back onto the tooth and root, removing pockets where bacteria can hide.
With our LANAP® treatment, we can treat patients without causing much pain, even in the cases of those suffering from gum disease, gum recession, or even periodontitis, which used to require treatments that have always been quite painful. It is also a long-term treatment.
Our LANAP® is the only FDA-approved laser on the market. There have been many studies, here and abroad. We truly believe that our laser helps to save many teeth that would have needed to be pulled otherwise. It promotes bone regeneration and reduces the growth of deep pockets, allowing our patients to have healthy mouths!
LANAP® is the only FDA-approved laser treatment for periodontitis, backed up by a lot of research and studies. Because of this, you should make sure that your dentist is using the LANAP® treatment with the PerioLase® MVP-7™.
There are many benefits of using the LANAP® treatment.
Since the LANAP® treatment is mostly non-invasive, patients will heal much faster than those who go through traditional treatments.
There is less discomfort and pain when using PerioLase® MVP-7.™ It also decreases healing time. Usually patients don’t need extra pain medication after the procedure.
Many patients don’t take much time to recover, going back to their daily routine right away.
Gum line recession is very minimal, if there is any at all. This is due to the fact that we are able to remove only the tissue that is damaged.
There is less inflammation and bleeding. Also, the LANAP® treatment works quickly and efficiently. We can often remove up to ninety percent of inflammation with just one treatment. By using the PerioLase® MVP-7,™ we can target the bacteria without harming healthy tissue.
By using LANAP,® more people are able to save their natural teeth, even when other dentists believe that they are unsaveable.
By using the LANAP® treatment, we can help with the regeneration of bone around your teeth. It is scientifically proven to be the only way.
Our protocol is very safe. There are no contraindications with LANAP.® We can treat people who suffer from many diseases and even those who take daily medications.
