LANAP® = Laser Assisted Regeneration (LAR)
An FDA-cleared laser treatment called the LANAP protocol offers a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional surgery. LANAP=LAR is the only scientifically, research proven methodology that results in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment, minimay invasive and discomfort. The therapy doesn’t involve instruments such as scalpels or sutures. The LANAP=LAR treatment is one of the most successful protocols in treating gum disease because it can target the source of the inflammation without hurting or removing any healthy gum tissue, slow or stop attachment loss and decrease pocket depth, and allowing the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for scalpel or sutures.
This technology is available on both teeth and dental implants and is changing the treatment of periodontal disease the same as LASIK changed ophthalmology options.
Implants have been a “game changing” innovation in dentistry as a solution for missing teeth. Patients have invested significantly in this approach, only to be confronted with ailing and failing implants. The LAPIP protocol gives patients a first-line treatment option to protect their implant investment.LAPIP treatment is preferred by patients as a less invasive way to treat periodontally-involved inflammation around implants. Maintaining healthy tissue is proven to give longer life to implants – and to your patient’s smile.
The LAPIP protocol is the only patient-friendly, predictable solution for ailing implants. Studies indicate 95% of the failing implants treated with the LAPIP protocol have reintegrated in the pocket and stabilized with bone growth of 3-8 threads.
Because no resection or reflection of a vertically oriented flap is needed, the integrity of the structural tissue is retained. Thus all other future treatment options remain. Read More
