The Periolase MVP-7 Laser
Most Popular Laser Periodontics Procedures
- LANAP Laser Gum Therapy: The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP, is a revolutionary laser treatment for gum disease that has been compared to the LASIK equivalent for gum surgery. This innovative procedure utilizes the Periolase MVP-7 laser, which selectively eliminates bacteria and diseased tissue while preserving healthy gum tissue. Laser therapy stimulates the regeneration of the surrounding tissues and the reattachment of the gums to the teeth, promoting healing and restoring the natural function of the mouth. LANAP also promotes laser-induced stem cell regeneration, offering a less invasive and more efficient surgical alternative to periodontal surgery.
- LAPIP Laser Dental Implant Restoration: Laser-Assisted Perio-Implant Procedure, or LAPIP, is a cutting-edge technique that uses the Periolase MVP-7 laser to salvage failing dental implants. It generates a new profit center by attracting more implant patients and periodontal patients looking for solutions for failing implants. Dr. Alghadban utilizes LAPIP to eliminate the disease-causing bacteria around the implant, helping to restore and maintain the health of the surrounding tissues, and ultimately saving the dental implant. This procedure can significantly enhance the longevity and functionality of dental implants.
- BLAST Laser Dental Implant Maintenance: BLAST, or Biofilm Laser Anti-microbial Sustained Therapy, is a preventive measure that effectively reduces bacteria and inflammation before or after implant placement. Using the Periolase MVP-7 laser, the BLAST procedure targets the biofilm that harbors bacteria around dental implants, effectively eradicating harmful pathogens while preserving the implant and surrounding tissues. This method significantly lowers the risk of implant failure and prolongs the life of the implant, ensuring overall oral health.
- Laser Gum Depigmentation: Often referred to as gum bleaching or gum whitening, laser gum depigmentation is a cosmetic procedure performed to remove excessive pigmentation in the gums, resulting in a lighter, more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Using the Periolase MVP-7 laser, Dr. Alghadban can selectively target and remove the melanin pigments that cause the darkening of the gums. As one of the advanced dental gum plastic surgery procedures, this method is quick, minimally invasive, and yields immediate results, transforming the patient’s smile and boosting their confidence.
Other Gum Conditions Laser Periodontics Treat
Hemangiomas: Hemangiomas are non-cancerous growths composed of blood vessels that commonly appear in the mouth or on the skin. The PerioLase MVP-7 Laser can efficiently treat oral hemangiomas, minimizing bleeding and discomfort while accelerating the healing process.
Mucoceles: A mucocele is a type of cyst that forms in the salivary glands of the mouth, often as a result of trauma or blockage. The laser technology of the PerioLase MVP-7 enables effective treatment of mucoceles, reducing the risk of recurrence and facilitating swift recovery.
Aphthous Ulcers: Commonly known as canker sores, Aphthous Ulcers are small, painful sores that form inside the mouth. With the precision and gentleness of the PerioLase MVP-7 Laser, these ulcers can be treated effectively, easing discomfort and aiding faster healing.
Lichen Planus: This is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the mucous membranes inside your mouth. Laser periodontics with the PerioLase MVP-7 can help manage oral lichen planus by reducing inflammation and promoting the healing of lesions.
Shingles, Herpes, or Cold Sore Treatments: Viral conditions such as shingles, herpes, or cold sores cause painful blisters and sores. The PerioLase MVP-7 Laser provides a non-invasive, effective treatment option that can alleviate pain, speed up recovery, and prevent future outbreaks.
