Now that is a great question: just how "new" is "new"? Here's why we ask it: Recent media stories about the LANAP procedure have called it "new". Well, LANAP is a "new" in the sense that many people are just now discovering the procedure and it's benefits.
It is not new in the sense that the procedure has been developed and perfected over many years. The therapy and the laser used to perform it (The Periolase MVP-7, Millenium Dental Technologies, Inc) have been long in use in the dental communities. LANAP has been performed on thousands of patients throughout the United States with outstanding results. In fact, it is the only laser protocol that is FDA approved for the treatment of gum disease. The results from LANAP have been proven to be effective and predictable.
And, while that may not be "new" it is certainly "news" to many of us!
