The LANAP protocol is a laser-based treatment for gum disease. The LANAP protocol is less invasive than traditional surgery as there is no cutting and suturing with the procedure. Patients typically report less pain and discomfort during and after the procedure, compared to traditional periodontal surgery. This patient friendly procedure helps you get healthy again comfortably, without fear. The LANAP protocol is a patented periodontal treatment, cleared by the FDA in 2004. The procedure can only be done with the PerioLase® MVP-7; this laser operates at a specific wavelength that attacks the bacteria that contributes to gum disease while leaving healthy tissue intact. Post-surgical recession and tooth sensitivity, which can be significant following traditional gum surgery, are also greatly reduced.
Drs. Jennifer and Richard Vermillion were trained in the LANAP protocol by world-renowned periodontist, Dr. Jon Suzuki. Training involves a year-long live patient hands-on experience in Cerritos, California.
“I just received a whole mouth LANAP procedure performed by Dr. Jenn. The procedure was split in two separate visits 1 week apart. The procedure was painless as was the recovery. I would highly recommend getting this procedure if you’re a candidate for it. I have been a patient for well over 40 years and the doctors and staff are excellent, I actually look forward to my dental visits due to the courteous, friendly and professional staff. It is definitely a 5 star dental office!”
