Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. has reached milestone today in the one-year anniversary of the world’s first and only US FDA clearance for full-mouth True Periodontal Regeneration.
Millenium said Wednesday the LANAP protocol with the PerioLase MVP-7 dental laser is the only laser-based gum disease treatment to demonstrate this extraordinary ability to regenerate all three periodontal tissues: alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and cementum lost to disease.
Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, co-founder of MDT, inventor of the LANAP protocol and co-developer of the PerioLase MVP-7 said: “This unique distinction granted by the FDA a year ago confirmed that the LANAP protocol treats periodontal disease in a way that we could previously only dream of. Now all patients have a proven no-cut, no-sew science-based treatment to reverse gum disease.”
Dawn M. Gregg, DDS, CEO & Training Director, the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry, said: “With True Regeneration, the LANAP protocol has changed the standard of care in periodontal disease treatment. A critical part of informed consent within dentistry is helping patients understand their treatment choices – the choices are do nothing; choose painful and only partially successful repair methods; or choose a highly effective regenerative method. It’s no surprise what patients choose when they want to save their teeth – and their health.”
