Topic: The LANAP and LAPIP Protocols: En”LIGHT”ing Therapies for Periodontitis and Peri-implantitis
Venue: North Point Periodontics Education Center 4205 North Point Parkway, Building A Alpharetta, GA 30022
The traditional treatment of periodontal disease, via pocket reduction surgery, has remained unchanged for decades. The LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) protocol is a FDA approved tissue sparing protocol, which now allows for the treatment of periodontal disease, by the body’s own regeneration and wound healing capacity. Treatment is through regeneration of the periodontal apparatus, rather than resective treatment. The patient perception of treatment with laser based protocol is more high-tech, “patient friendly” and less painful and frightening than other therapies. The LANAP protocol takes Periodontics back to its “ROOTS”; we save the dentition. The LANAP practitioner has now redefined the definition of “poor-hopeless prognosis”.
With the increase in implants being placed annually, a concurrent increase in the number of implants ailing and failing, due to peri-implantitis, is being seen in dental practices. As with the LANAP protocol, the LAPIP protocol addresses peri-implantitis in a more patient friendly and tissue sparing way.
