More than 50% of American adults suffer from gum disease, a serious infection that occurs below the gum line. Unfortunately, gum disease has been linked to various health issues such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and preterm babies. Shockingly, only a small percentage of these adults receive the necessary treatment.

Historically, gum disease treatment required invasive procedures such as gum tissue cutting or tooth extraction. However, with the LANAP® protocol, the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser uses a specific wavelength to remove bacteria deep within the pockets of the gums while still preserving healthy tissue. Patients who undergo this treatment experience fast healing times and can expect more predictable results. If you’re looking to maintain both oral and total health, consider exploring this innovative treatment option.

Benefits of LANAP®

  • Faster Healing–LANAP® is minimally invasive and allows the body to recover and heal more quickly.
  • Less Discomfort–Patients report less discomfort during and after surgery.
  • Minimal Recovery Time–Most patients can immediately return to their daily routine.
  • Little to No Gum Recession–Because the procedure doesn’t require cutting the gums, there is less risk of recession and your beautiful smile is maintained.
  • Reduction in Gum Inflammation and Bleeding–The PerioLase® MVP-7™ targets inflammatory bacteria without injuring healthy tissue.
  • Saves Teeth–Patients can keep their natural teeth sometimes even when the teeth have been deemed ‘hopeless’ with traditional treatments. Keeping your natural teeth has been linked to a longer lifespan!
  • Safe for patients with Health Concerns–LANAP®protocolis safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking medications such as Plavix or aspirin.
