Millennium Dental Technologies showcases periodontitis treatment at GNYDM

Periodontal patient suffering may someday be a thing of the past due to a radically more effective, less invasive way to treat moderate to severe periodontitis — the LANAP protocol. A groundbreaking topic planned for multiple discussions at the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM) on December 2 and 3, 2013, Millennium Dental Technologies, developer of the FDA-cleared LANAP protocol and the manufacturer of the PerioLase MVP-7 digital dental laser, will offer dental professionals rich educational resources via multiple speakers, live demonstrations and hands-on workshops. With a mission to change the standard of care in gum disease treatment, Millennium Dental Technologies is improving the odds — and changing the industry — one periodontal patient at a time.

Gone are the days of scalpels and sutures in gum disease treatment. The LANAP protocol is a patient-friendly, tissue-sparing, laser periodontitis surgery, resulting in scientifically proven regenerative outcomes. Patients experience significantly less post-operative pain, require fewer treatment sessions, and enjoy quicker recovery times and lasting results.

“No matter what medical field you’re in, the goal is always to achieve better patient outcomes — and periodontal dentistry is no exception,” explained Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, president and co-founder of Millennium Dental Technologies. “With the LANAP protocol, the level of improvement for the patient is so life-changing, all clinicians should embrace and offer the treatment option to their periodontitis patients.”
