Successful Periodontal Treatment – Tooth Survival Over Time: A Ten Year History with LANAP in Private Practice
One of the key criteria for determining the success of periodontal therapies is tooth survival over time. This is an important factor for the clinician and the patient to be aware of and to consider when discussing treatment recommendations. The purpose of this information is to evaluate tooth survival over time in a population of patients treatment with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) and to compare that data to previously published studies of tooth survival utilizing conventional surgical treatment methods.
- Periodontal disease etiology, progression and prevalence
- Periodontal disease treatment and challenges
- Laser physics and how that effects laser application, safety, efficacy and predictability
- The history of the PerioLase for LANAP and the progression of its acceptance as part of the standard of care for the treatment of periodontal disease
- The requirements for successful periodontal therapy and achieving it with PerioLase for LANAP
- How LANAP compares to conventional periodontal surgical therapies in helping patients to maintain their teeth over time in comfort and function
