LANAP® Laser Treatment

The LANAP ® Protocol for General & Periodontal Practices

LANAP steps image

The LANAP protocol is a laser-based approach to gum disease using a free running pulsed laser requiring specific knowledge and skills drawn from the whole dentistry. The LANAP protocol is a laser-based approach to gum disease using a free running pulsed laser requiring specific knowledge and skills drawn from the whole dentistry.

To you, the patient, 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.

We use the LANAP protocol to treat gum disease to: remove only the diseased tissue without removing any of the healthy tissue, maintain the height of the tissue around teeth, minimize pain and discomfort to the patient, get a closure of the periodontal pocket wound around teeth, and allow healing to take place.

Controlling periodontal disease makes it possible to save and restore otherwise hopeless teeth.

Treatment Procedure

A) Perio probe indicates excessive pocket depth.

B) Laser light removes bacteria and diseased tissue.

C) Ultrasonic scaler and special hand instruments are used to remove root surface tarter.

D) Bone is modified at time of surgery.

E) Laser finishes cleaning pocket and aids in sealing the pocket closed so new germs cannot enter.

F) Healing of gums to clean root surface occurs.

G) Bite trauma is adjusted.

H) Healing occurs.

 

The LAPIP ® Protocol for Saving Ailing & Failing Implants

LAPIP steps image

LAPIP_logoThe LAPIP protocol is a laser-based approach to helping to treat ailing and failing dental implants. The LAPIP protocol utilizes the unique PerioLase® MVP-7, a free running pulsed laser requiring specific knowledge and skills derivative of the LANAP protocol.

To you, the patient, 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 downtime, and less recovery time which is decidedly less costly to you and your employer.

The LAPIP protocol:

  • Allows removal of diseased tissue without removing any of the healthy tissue
  • Eliminates the infection
  • Helps maintain the height of the tissue around implants
  • Minimizes pain and discomfort to the patient
  • Closes the periodontal pocket wound to allow healing to take place.

The LAPIP protocol is a no-risk first-line treatment that preserves other treatment options. Controlling peri-implant disease makes it possible to save and protect your implant investment.

Treatment Procedure

A) Perio probe indicates excessive pocket depth.

B) Laser vaporizes bacteria, diseased tissue, pathologic proteins, and titanium corrosion contaminants in soft tissue.

C) Ultrasonic scaler tips are used to remove surface accretions.

D) Bone is modified at time of surgery.

E) Laser is used to form a stable fibrin blood clot containing stem cells from bone.

F) Adhesion to clean surface, with a stable fibrin clot at the gingival crest to create a ‘closed system’.

G) Occlusal trauma is adjusted.

H) New attachment is regenerated.
