How LANAP® Can Fix Loose Teeth and Reverse Bone Loss

Bone regeneration is a constant, natural process in the human body. Whenever you fracture, or even break a bone, the human body immediately starts to re-form that bone structure. The bone supporting your teeth is no exception.

Traditionally, there were few options when it came to the “my teeth feel loose” feeling and fixing loose teeth. Dentists were required to inform patients that sometimes “hopeless” teeth must be removed via surgery. This painful procedure used harsh, invasive methods of removal that worked against your body’s natural healing process.

Thanks to technological advancements, we now have a better option.

Stopping Bone Loss with LANAP®: Periodontal Bone Regeneration

Because of the specific laser used, LANAP® kills the bacteria and disease under and surrounding the gums, while also stimulating the cells in those areas to begin their natural healing process. With the vast reduction of harmful bacteria and the stimulation of cells, the gums and bone structure can often heal to the point where bone regeneration can occur where it was once prevented.

In fact, the LANAP® laser is the only FDA-approved laser for tooth loss and bone tissue regeneration.

True periodontal regeneration of the attachment apparatus (new cementum, new periodontal ligament, and new alveolar bone) has been shown to occur in LANAP® patients (FDA 510(k) K151763).

As the Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry states: “The wavelength of the PerioLase MVP-7 targets the diseased tissue without harming healthy tissue, and the laser light penetrates 4 mm beyond the tissue surface for effective bacteria kill. Once the site is clean, the laser interacts with the patient’s hemoglobin to create a stable fibrin clot.”

Instead of working against your body, LANAP® works with the body’s natural healing process by giving it a push in the right direction.
