LANAP = Laser Assisted Regeneration (LAR)
An FDA-cleared laser treatment called the LANAP protocol offers a less invasive treatment alternative to conventional surgery. LANAP=LAR is a scientifically, research proven methodology that can result in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth, and gum tissue reattachment. LANAP and LAR is accomplished with the PerioLase MVP-7. It is a free-running, variable pulsed Nd:YAG laser. The 7 variable pulse durations can be thought of as “different lasers” in one device as they have discrete and discriminating tissue interactions. The LANAP=LAR treatment is one of the most successful protocols in the treatment of gum disease because it can target the source of the inflammation without removing any healthy gum tissue, slow or stop attachment loss and decrease pocket depth, and allows the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for scalpel or sutures. Dr. Adams and Dr. Whitt can determine after your initial exam is the LANAP laser is the right fit for your specific treatment.
