CERRITOS, Calif., March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. marks a huge milestone today in the one-year anniversary of the world's first and only US FDA clearance for full-mouth True Periodontal Regeneration. 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.
"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," said Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, co-founder of MDT, inventor of the LANAP protocol and co-developer of the PerioLase MVP-7. "Now all patients have a proven no-cut, no-sew science-based treatment to reverse gum disease."
"With True Regeneration, the LANAP protocol has changed the standard of care in periodontal disease treatment," states Dawn M. Gregg, DDS, CEO & Training Director, the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry. "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."
- 85% of U.S. adults have some level of gum disease; 40% suffer from moderate-to-severe levels.
- Gum disease is linked to systemic diseases including: heart disease, Alzheimer's, stroke, certain cancers, pre-term birth, diabetes and more.
- LANAP protocol is the preferred laser gum disease protocol for over 30% of periodontists and thousands of general dentists

- LANAP protocol is now part of legal informed consent
