Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure
Laser-assisted periodontal therapy (LAPT) and/or laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP) is a non-surgical therapy for treating gum disease. It is a scientifically proven methodology that results in periodontal regeneration, new bone growth, and gum tissue reattachment. Laser therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that is used to treat your
The PerioLase MVP-7 (Nd: YAG) uses a specific wavelength that is utilized to the first target and then destroys the tissue that is affected by the disease and terminates the underlying bacteria that has accumulated within the
periodontal pockets. The laser eliminates the periodontal bacteria and promotes the re-growth of the surrounding gum and bone, giving you a healthy natural smile that can last a lifetime.
The bacteria that are responsible for gum disease live on the root surface and gum tissues. The pinpoint precision of the PerioLase MVP-7 laser energy targets and retorts disease tissue and bacteria from the periodontal
pockets. The removal of the diseased tissue allows access for thorough root debridement of the tartar or calculus that is linked to inflamed gums that often lead to bleeding when brushing and flossing. The laser eliminates disease without harming the surrounding healthy tissues and promotes healing. In the final step, the laser is applied to the clean and sterile roots and gums to form a seal or blood clot. This hinders the regrowth of infection and promotes an environment where the gum and bone may regenerate and stabilize the teeth. The laser energy promotes biostimulation and
increases the body's healing response.
Lasers are safe and have been approved by the US FDA as safe for periodontal treatment, periodontal cosmetics, and implants as well as a variety of other dental procedures.
