LANAP = Laser Assisted Regeneration (LAR)
An FDA-cleared laser treatment called the LANAP protocol offers a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional surgery. LANAP=LAR is the only scientifically researched methodology that results in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth, and gum tissue reattachment.
LANAP and LAR are 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 treating gum disease because it can target the source of the inflammation without hurting or removing any healthy gum tissue, slow or stop attachment loss and decrease pocket depth, and allowing the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for scalpel or sutures.
No Cut, No Sew,
Originally developed as a simple communication to help patients understand the differences between the LANAP protocol and traditional periodontal surgery, the No Cut, No Sew, No Fear logo helps educate patients and increase treatment acceptance.
By helping to reduce the fear associated with gum surgery, we can help more patients receive the treatment they need.

Healing Is Perceived To Be Faster And More Comfortable Than Conventional Surgery
Eighty percent of US adults suffer from some degree of gum disease, making this one of the most common diseases in America. Yet, only 60 percent know they have gum disease. Worse yet, only 3% of adults with moderate to severe levels of gum disease will accept treatment.
Gum Disease Stages
Gums disease begins when a film called plaque accumulates on the teeth and calcium from saliva hardens the plaque — this calcified plaque is called tartar or calculus. Certain types of germs that live in this plaque and calculus damage gum tissue. Your body tries to fight this infection with an inflammatory attack, sending white blood cells to the area to destroy the bacteria. This inflammation causes the tissue to bleed easily when you brush or floss. This stage of the condition is called Gingivitis.
If the infection and inflammation persist the result is a chronic inflammatory condition where, in addition to the gums, ligament and bone around the teeth are destroyed — often with no symptoms. At this stage it is called Periondontitis.

Treatment Options for Gum disease
Success is determined by the treatment’s ability to reduce or eliminate gum inflammation, slow, or stop attachment loss and decrease pocket depth — and that can vary depending on the type of treatment.
Traditional Gum Surgery
A scalpel is used to cut the gums and then fold or “flap” the gums back in order to expose the roots of the teeth and the jawbone. This allows the dentist to clean all the tartar from the roots and view the bone supporting the teeth. If any damaged bone is present, the bone is then reshaped and/or bone graft material is placed. The top of the gums may also be cut in order to achieve a periodontal pocket that is 3mm deep to allow the patient to clean effectively. For example, if you had a 6-millimeter pocket depth, then 3 millimeters of gum tissue (healthy or diseased) would have to be removed to create a 3-millimeter pocket. The gums are then stitched back in place and recovery begins.
