Want more info on LANAP, the PerioLase, and Gum Disease Treatment in North/South Carolina?

Ok, then you’re in luck!  Here is a video that will give you pretty good information about periodontal (gum) disease in general, as well as about conventional non-surgical and surgical treatment options, and then about LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Protocol).

Something very important to know: the Periolase MVP-7 dental laser, made by Millenium Dental Technologies, and for which the required training is provided by the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD), is the ONLY dental laser available that can be used with LANAP.  DON’T BE FOOLED INTO THINKING THAT ANY OLD LASER CAN DO THIS! There are only 4 doctors in Charlotte, NC (as of today September 17th, 2009) who can offer this treatment to you, including me; make sure it’s the real deal.   Dr. Robert Gregg and Dr. Delwin McCarthy, who founded Millenium Dental and developed the Periolase and LANAP, are passionate about protecting patients from harm by dentists who don’t have the right background or understanding of lasers, which is why they patented the protocol with the FDA.  Only doctors who complete the initial 3 days of training receive a license and laser.

Further Information on LANAP Treatment for Gum Disease in Charlotte

OK – so I’m just going to be adding a LOT of information about periodontal (gum) disease and how the Periolase MVP-7 laser treats it so well; in addition, I’ll finally be getting around to adding more information on the significant health effects that gum disease can have, including:

  • Increased risk of heart attack
  • Increased risk of stroke
  • Risk of worsening diabetes
  • Increased risk of pre-term births
  • Increased risk of low-birth-weight babies

Just so you know I’m not making this stuff up 🙂  , here are a few videos by national news programs that will help fill in the gaps:

And in case you missed Whoopi Goldberg talking about her gum disease on “The View,” don’t miss it again!

Painless Laser Gum Surgery and One-Visit Smile Makeovers in Charlotte NC

Man oh man, am I excited!  We are taking some bold new steps in technology here at Smiles by Payet Dentistry by upgrading to the newest version of our In-office, 1-Visit Crowns CAD/CAM system, the CEREC AC Bluecam, AND we’re FINALLY adding the Periolase MVP-7 laser to our practice, which is THE most effective treatment for gum disease available today.  Lots more information will be forthcoming as we get closer to the equipment arriving.  The Periolase will hopefully be in the office by late August, and the CEREC Bluecam by early September.

But what do each of these additions mean to YOU?  Some pretty good things, actually:

1) The CEREC Bluecam is even faster and more accurate than my current CEREC 3D, and it’s software is designed to make doing 4-6 or more veneers/crowns much easier, faster, and better.  The other really cool thing is that, even if we can’t do the actual restoration with the CEREC, it’s software allows us to take digital impressions and EMAIL them to the lab!  That means NO MORE GOOEY IMPRESSIONS!  And the accuracy is just phenomenal.  With it’s speed and accuracy, we anticipate being able to complete a 6-10 tooth Smile Makeover in JUST ONE VISIT!  How amazing would that be?  It can be done with the current version I have, but it’s slow, clunky, and would take absolutely forever – no thanks.

2) As excited as I am about the Bluecam, what I’m MOST excited about is the Periolase MVP-7 laser.  This is groundbreaking technology, but it’s not just the laser itself, it is that it’s backed by a FDA-approved, patented protocol for success, not just some company’s word that it works.  The Periolase has more research backing it up on it’s successful treatment of gum disease than any other laser currently available.  Periodontal disease is responsible for more teeth being lost/extracted even than cavities, and studies show that about 50% of all Americans currently have some level of gum disease, but only 7% actually get treatment. What makes this really crazy is that periodontal disease has been linked to a drastically increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, as well as low birthweight and pre-term babies.

Much more news will be forthcoming about both of these fabulous new technologies that we’re adding for your benefit as we approach their delivery dates.  Stay tuned, and be ready to call 704-364-7069 for a consultation or Make an Appointment Online.
