LANAP is an FDA-approved laser treatment that employs the PerioLase MVP-7 system to generate variable pulsed Nd:YAG laser. For many years, LANAP has been used successfully to treat gum disease. It is a non-surgical alternative to traditional gum surgery. There is no need for any cutting or sutures.The laser focuses on the source of periodontal inflammation, allowing your body to heal from the chronic infection of your gums.
How LANAP Works?
A) Perio probe indicates excessive pocket depth and bone defects
B) PerioLase MVP-7 laser energy vaporizes bacteria, diseased tissue, pathologic proteins, and alerts the practitioner to presence of tartar.
C) Ultrasonic scaler and specialized tips are used to remove root surface tartar and calculus
D) Bone is modified at the time of surgery, Laser-Tissue Regeneration(LTR) initiated
E) PerioLase MVP-7 is used to form a gel-clot containing stem cells from bone and soft tissue collagen.
F) Adherence of rete ridges, stem cells, RBCs to clean root surface with a stable fibrin clot at the gingival crest to create a ‘closed system’
G) Bite trauma is adjusted
H) True periodontal tissue regeneration occurs.
