The LANAP protocol is a comprehensive approach to treating gum disease around teeth and dental implants using the Millennium PerioLase MVP-7, a free-running pulsed Nd:YAG laser requiring specific knowledge and skills drawn from the whole of dentistry.
It is the only FDA approved procedure for treating periodontitis and for regeneration of lost bone. The LANAP protocol targets the diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact, while maintaining the height of the tissue and a closure of the periodontal pocket wound. This allow healing to take place while minimizing pain and discomfort to the patient. This means less pain, less bleeding, less swelling, no stitches, less down time and less recovery-time dramatically.
