What is The LANAP® Protocol?
Statistics reveal that only a percentage of patients with gum disease actually end up seeking professional treatment. Periodontal disease has been linked to several health issues including heart disease, diabetes, pancreatic cancer, and premature birth. Until recently, the only way to treat this condition was by accessing the infected areas through incisions and suturing the tissue to promote healing. Today, patients can undergo a minimally invasive laser procedure that can eliminate up to 90 percent of the inflammation in a single treatment.
The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser and the LANAP® protocol allow periodontists like Dr. Green to kill the bacteria under the gum line without harming healthy tissue. This makes the entire process more comfortable for patients, who enjoy a faster recovery time as a result. The LANAP® protocol is an FDA cleared gum disease treatment and has proven to be safe and effective for all patients. Not only does it kill bacteria, but it can also promote bone tissue regeneration.
