A breakthrough, FDA approved treatment for patients with moderate and severe gum disease. Gentle, effective, and regenerative, there is only one laser (the PerioLase) and one procedure that have proven to the FDA their effectiveness.
Laser Periodontal Therapy (also called Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure or "LANAP") is the alternative to conventional surgical techniques for signifacant periodontal disease. It is a gentle, minimally invasive surgical protocol that produces major changes by allowing the body to heal itself.
A good way to think about LANAP is to consider what LASIK laser surgery has done for eyes. Very precise and sophisticated procedures can be done with a laser that just can't be done with a blade. In addition to the great regenerative potential of LANAP, there is very little discomfort after the procedure. Unlike traditional surgery, there is normally no swelling, gum recession, or root sensitivity following the procedure.
If you've been told you have significant gum problems, you owe it to yourself to check out Laser Periodontal Therapy. See the patient portion of www.millenniumdental.com for much more detailed information including advantages, frequently asked questions and an animation of the procedure.
