Laser Assisted Regeneration (LANAP) with PerioLase MVP-7
An FDA-cleared laser treatment called the LANAP protocol offers a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional periodontal surgery. LANAP is the only scientifically, research proven process that results in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment. The procedure is accomplished with the PerioLase MVP-7. It is a free-running, variable pulsed Nd:YAG laser. The LANAP treatment is one of the most successful protocols in treating gum disease because it can target the source of the inflammation without hurting or removing any healthy gum tissue, slow or stop attachment loss and decrease pocket depth, and allowing the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for scalpel or sutures.
