The LAPIP protocol is a minimally-invasive approach to treating ailing and failing dental implants.

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

To you, the patient, this means:

  • Protect implant investment
  • No cutting
  • No bone grafting
  • No stitches
  • Less pain
  • Less tissue removed
  • Less down time
  • Less recovery time
  • Less bleeding
  • Less swelling

The LAPIP Protocol:

  • Allows removal of only diseased tissue without removing any healthy tissue
  • Eliminates the infection
  • Helps maintain the height of the tissue around implants
  • Minimizes pain and discomfort to the patient
  • Closes the periodontal pocket wound to allow healing to take place

The LAPIP protocol is a no-risk first line treatment that preserves other treatment options. Controlling peri-implant disease makes it possible to save and protect your implant investment.

Treatment Procedure

  1. Periodontal probe indicates excessive pocket depth
  2. PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser energy selectively vaporizes bacteria, endotoxins, and diseased tissues; and removes titanium corrosion contaminants in soft tissue around implant
  3. Ultrasonic scaler tips remove debris from implant
  4. Bone is modified to release stem cells
  5. PerioLase MVP-7 finishes cleaning pocket, stimulates natural growth factors, and aids in sealing pocket closed so new germs cannot enter
  6. Healing of gums to clean root surface occurs
  7. Bite trauma is adjusted
  8. Regeneration of bone around implant
