Dr. Robert H. Gregg, developer of Laser Periodontal Therapy, discusses how scalpel-free dental laser therapy successfully treats the cause of gum disease (bacteria and resulting endotoxins) with less pain, less bleeding, less infection, and less recovery time. Airdate: May 6, 2008
A Minimally-Invasive, FDA-Cleared Gum Disease Treatment with True Regeneration®
The patented LANAP protocol is a minimally-invasive surgical method of treating and often reversing gum disease.
During the procedure, the PerioLase MVP-7 dental laser is used to gently remove harmful germs and diseased tissue from the gum pocket, keeping healthy tissue intact.
The LANAP protocol is the only laser treatment to receive FDA clearance for True Periodontal Regeneration.
The LANAP protocol can also help loose dental implants. Using the PerioLase MVP-7, we can often save ailing or failing implants using the LAPIP protocol. We use the same laser, but different laser settings and light exposure to help implants stabilize while destroying periodontal pathogens and endotoxins.
A Laser-Based Approach To Helping To Treat Ailing and Failing Dental Implants
Using the PerioLase MVP-7, we can often save ailing or failing implants using the LAPIP protocol.
We use the same laser, but different laser settings and light exposure to help your implant stabilize while destroying periodontal pathogens and endotoxins. The LAPIP protocol utilizes the unique PerioLase® MVP-7, a Nd:YAG free running pulsed laser requiring specific knowledge and skills derivative of the LANAP protocol.
This means the opportunity to protect your implant investment with no cutting, bone grafting or stitches. This means less pain, less bleeding, less swelling, less tissue removed, less down time, and less recovery time which is decidedly less costly to you and your employer.
The LAPIP protocol:
LPD kills bacteria and disrupts biofilm to reduce inflammation. The unique wavelength targets the bacteria that causes gum disease for minimally invasive, highly effective, quick and painless treatment. When isolated pocketing is present, LPD decreases pocket depths without curettage. Ideal for patients with gingivitis.Benefits:
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or biostimulation can be used for many applications within dentistry, in particular to reduce the pain associated with orthodontics or temporomandibular disorder (TMJ).Benefits:
Herpetic lesions can occur in three different forms: recurrent small blisters on the lips, a generalized oral infection, or small ulcers on the palatal mucosa. The most common form is small blisters on the lips, which can be treated with low level laser therapy. Outbreaks may be triggered by sunlight, physical trauma, stress, and other irritants. Lesions will usually resolve in 10-14 days, but may be painful.Benefits:
Dental sensitivity affects more than 40% of adults worldwide, and more than 40 million people in the United States.  Exposed dental tubules are believed to be the predominate cause, with sensitivity to heat and cold the most common complaint. Laser therapy can help close tubules and reduces sensitivity.
