Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP)
A Revolutionary Breakthrough in Gum Disease Treatment, Laser Therapy & Periodontal Surgery
The free running (FR) pulsed Nd:YAG lasers have been used safely & effectively by Periodontists & Cosmetic Dentists for over 20 years. In July 2004, Millennium Dental Technologies & the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry's Laser-NAP Protocol was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The LANAP or Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (Millennium PerioLase®) is the latest & most advanced piece of laser therapy technology in your periodontist or cosmetic dentist's arsenal. Developed to offer patients a significantly less traumatic alternative to traditional periodontal surgery, the LANAP specifically treats periodontal disease & is able to regenerate soft tissue and bone by encouraging the body's natural healing properties.
The power to treat gum disease, and even grow bone, lies in the technology of the PerioLase® MVP-7 Laser - the world's most widely used dental laser platform. Through the elimination of Gum Resection, our patients' original gum tissue is preserved, enabling them to maintain their smiles and avoid unsightly root exposure and associated temperature sensitivity.
This Newly FDA approved procedure to treat periodontal disease, reduces periodontal pocketing and can be achieved without periodontal surgery, using the PerioLase® laser. The laser both sterilizes the pocket and stimulates tissue formation, thereby resulting in pocket reduction.
Changing Lives Though New Dental Technologies
There are only a handful of offices in Southern California which utilize this highly advanced gum disease treatment & therapy protocol to help their patients.
In an on-going effort to improve the over-all health of our patients, the Coleman Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can now provide this level of non-invasive, conservative, definitive treatment for all levels of gum disease.
