LANAP Protocol®Palm Beach Gardens, FL

World’s First & ONLY Scientifically Proven † FDA Clearance for *True Periodontal Regeneration™­

The LANAP protocol is a laser-based treatment for gum disease. There is no cutting and suturing with the LANAP protocol. Patients typically report less pain and discomfort during and after the procedure, compared to traditional periodontal surgery. This patient friendly procedure helps you get healthy again comfortably, without fear. Generally, the LANAP protocol is less invasive than traditional surgery and helps maintain a beautiful smile line

The LANAP protocol is a patented periodontal treatment, cleared by the FDA in 2004. The procedure can only be done with the PerioLase® MVP-7; this laser operates at a specific wavelength that attacks the bacteria that contributes to gum disease while leaving healthy tissue intact. Post-surgical recession and tooth sensitivity, which can be significant following traditional gum surgery, are also greatly reduced.

The LANAP protocol is the world’s first and only scientifically proven laser gum disease treatment with FDA clearance for True Periodontal Regeneration.

The LANAP protocol utilizes the unique PerioLase® MVP-7™, an Nd:YAG free running pulsed laser requiring specific knowledge and skills derivative of the LANAP protocol.

To you, the patient, this means:

  • No cutting
  • No stitches
  • Less pain
  • Regeneration of bone and tissues lost to gum disease
  • Hope for hopeless teeth

The LANAP Protocol:

  • Eliminates the infection
  • Allows removal of only diseased tissue without removing any healthy tissue

Controlling periodontal disease makes it possible to save and restore otherwise hopeless teeth.

  1. Periodontal probe indicates excessive pocket depth
  2. PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser energy selectively vaporizes bacteria, endotoxins, diseased tissues and denatures pathologic proteins
  3. Ultrasonic scaler tips remove root surface tartar
  4. Bone is modified to release stem cells growth factors, and aids in sealing pocket closed so new germs cannot enter
  5. PerioLase MVP-7 finishes cleaning pocket, stimulates natural
  6. Healing of gums to clean root surface occurs
  7. Bite trauma is adjusted
  8. Tissues and bone regenerate for true healing
