     LANAP Protocol


The LANAP protocol is a gum disease treatment that uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, allowing for a minimally invasive alternative to surgery.


The LANAP protocol offers the possibility of stimulating the growth of the damaged parts of the tissue of the gums and the mouth, including the regrowth of a new periodontal ligament, new alveolar bone and new cementum. Without these three components, full oral function is not possible.


A. The Perio probe indicates a pocket depth excessive

     and bone defects.

B. The PerioLase® MVP-7 ""' laser energy vaporizes

     bacteria, diseased tissue, pathological proteins and

     alerts the doctor to the presence of tartar.

C.  An ultrasonic scaler and specialized tips are used

      to remove tartar and tartar from the root surface.

D. The bone is modified at the time of surgery, laser

     tissue regeneration (LTR) is initiated.


E.   PerioLaser MVP-7 is used to form a clot gel

      containing collagen stem cells for bones and soft


F.   Adherence of rete ridges, stem cells, red blood

      cells to clean the surface of the root, with a stable

      fibrin clot in the gingival ridge to create a 'closed


G.  Bite trauma is adjusted.

H.  True regeneration of the periodontal tissue.

   Dental Implants


The dental implant, titanium screw intended to replace the root of a missing tooth. It usually has a threaded shape and is made of biocompatible materials that allow it to be attached to the bone.


The implant surface can have different textures and coatings, commonly used to increase its adhesion to the bone. With its placement, because the alveoli contain an element that simulates the root of the tooth, a greater amount of alveolar bone is preserved, and therefore the vertical dimension of the mouth is maintained to a certain degree.



      Dental Bridges

Before the dramatic improvement in dental implants, fixed bridges were the only option available to patients who wanted something natural-looking and non-movable. Unlike a removable partial denture, a fixed bridge has no clasps, feels like natural teeth, and is cemented into place in the mouth.


A fixed bridge can be used to replace one or more teeth, depending on certain circumstances. The technique involved uses the teeth adjacent to those that were lost to support the replacement. The most common way to use adjacent teeth as "anchors" is by placing crowns on them.





Dentures are false teeth made to replace missing teeth. Complete dentures can cover both the upper and lower jaw.


 Talking and eating with dentures may seem different. Be careful when using them because they can make it difficult to perceive hot food or liquids. Also, you may not notice things like bones in your mouth when you eat.

   Dental Bonding

   (Adhesive Restoration)


Dental bonding or adhesive restoration, is an aesthetic material used for fillings in people who have broken, misaligned, fractured, separated or stained teeth can benefit from this treatment. Bonding is also used to repair teeth that have been damaged by excessive decay.


The objective of dental bonding is to make the teeth look and feel natural so that the treated pieces are sculpted according to the patient's needs. The special resin for the procedure is specially chosen to match the natural color of the patient's teeth.






One of the problems most felt by a significant proportion of people is the shape and arrangement of their teeth and jaws, which for different reasons have obvious irregularities. But in addition to being an aesthetic problem, the lack of orthodontics is also a functional anomaly that can cause dental wear, trauma, caries and gum disease.


Brackets in dental orthodontics are different and handle low friction, so that the wire works with all its strength. They are ideal for patients in whom it is necessary not to do an extraction, when the profile is very flat and the teeth are retroclined.


There are different types of orthodontic treatment, metal brackets, aesthetic and also invisalign.




   Periodontal Disease



For the Dental Patient


Tartar removal and root planing. Periodontal diseases (also known as gum disease or pyorrhea) are infections of the gums and the bone that support the teeth. They are often painless, and you may not realize you have a problem until your gums and supporting bone are severely damaged. The important thing is that periodontal diseases can be treated in the early stages with scaling (removal of tartar) and root planing or in advanced cases it requires periodontal surgery. During a checkup, the dentist checks to see if your gums have periodontal problems. An instrument called a periodontal probe is used to gently measure the depth of the space between the teeth and the gums.


 At the edge of the gum line, healthy gum tissue forms a shallow V-shaped groove (called a sulcus) between the tooth and the gums Normal sulcus depth should be 3 millimeters or less. In periodontal diseases, the groove deepens and accumulates more plaque bacteria and is difficult to keep clean. If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, your dentist can treat you, or may refer you to a periodontist, the dentist who specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of periodontal disease. Treatment often depends on how advanced the condition is and how your body responds to therapy.



Prevention and Treatment


Prevention includes a good daily oral hygiene routine. Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and cleaning between your teeth once a day with dental floss or another interdental cleanser helps prevent plaque formation. Regular dental checkups and cleanings are important. Root scaling and planing is a method to treat periodontal disease when the pockets are greater than 3mm.


Scaling is used to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line. A local anesthetic may be administered to reduce discomfort. Using a small scaling instrument or ultrasonic cleaner, the dentist or hygienist carefully removes plaque and tartar from the bottom of each periodontal pocket. Then, the root surfaces of the tooth are smoothed or smoothed. This allows the gum tissue to heal. It also makes it more difficult for plaque to build up on root surfaces.


 Your dentist may recommend, prescribe, and administer medications to help control infection and pain or to promote healing. During a follow-up appointment, the dentist checks how the gums have healed and how the periodontal pockets have diminished. When pockets larger than 3 mm persist after treatment, additional measures may be needed. You will be given instructions on how to care for your teeth and gums while they heal. Maintaining good oral hygiene and ongoing, sometimes lifelong, dental care are essential to help prevent periodontal disease from worsening or recurring.


   Root Canal

Root canal treatment is also known as endodontics, being the dental procedure by which the pain caused by an infection that has already reached the nerve and the interior vessels is relieved.


When the filling is done on time, the caries is resolved and prevents the nerve of the tooth from being invaded, avoiding root canal treatment.


The procedure consists of cleaning and removing the infection and filling the tooth canals.
