Laser treatment is being more commonly used as an alternative to traditional periodontal flap surgery. The laser fiber, which is only about as wide as three human hairs, is inserted between the gum tissue and your tooth, where it removes the noxious elements that cause gum disease. In our office we currently use the PerioLase® MVP-7™. This is a minimally invasive way to treat periodontal disease at any stage resulting in less overall pain and quicker recovery times.
PerioLase® MVP-7™ is alternative to gum surgery, is a less painful, less traumatic way to treat periodontal disease at any stage.
The LANAP® Procedure uses a special kind of laser called the PerioLase® MVP-7™, invented by two dentists in Cerritos, California. Dr. Robert Gregg and Dr. Delwin McCarthy spent years developing a better way to treat gum disease. The laser fiber, which is only about as wide as three human hairs, is inserted between the gum tissue and your tooth, where it removes the noxious elements that cause gum disease.
During your first LANAP® Procedure treatment, you'll receive a local anaesthetic to eliminate any possible discomfort a general anesthetic isn't necessary. The procedure is fast: It takes just two 2-hour sessions.
