LANAP Laser Surgery (Alternative to traditional periodontal surgery) 

With the introduction of the PerioLase® MVP-7™and the LANAP® protocol (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) we are able to remove and kill only the bacteria within the pockets of your gums while leaving the healthy tissue behind to reattach to the root surface! Why is this important? You can now enjoy less pain, less discomfort, less recession, less sensitivity, and much better and more predictable long-term results. LANAP® is the first and only FDA cleared laser protocol on the market and has been proven through extensive science and research studies in the United States and abroad. Quite simply it is the highest standard of care available in the world for the treatment of periodontal disease. Often we can save teeth that have previously been deemed hopeless by naturally regenerating the bone around the tooth.

If saving your teeth, reducing your pocket depths, and maintaining optimum periodontal health is important to you, this is a treatment that you must consider!

Beware of Phony Laser Treatments and False Advertisements!

LANAP® is the ONLY FDA cleared protocol for the treatment of periodontitis! It is also the ONLY laser with the science, research, and human histological studies to PROVE its claims! No matter what clinician you decide to get laser treatment from be sure that your doctors is LANAP® Certified and they are using the PerioLase® MVP-7™.
