My journey into LANAP

I had a patient that I refered to my Periodontist one of the best in Los Angeles, teaches at USC.

He and I both agreed that my patient should have his teeth removed and Implants placed. For everything I knew that was a good recomendation.

His teeth were loose and he had lost most of the bone around his teeth.

But the patient did not want to get screwed with Titanium and searched out an alternative.

Fortunatly he found the creator of the LANAP procedure and had it done in 1997.

This patient has been coming into my practice faithfully every 3 months to have his teeth cleaned.

To this day over 12 years later he still has all his teeth.



  1. After my dentist told me I needed laser gum surgery, I went into a total panic. I have been struggling with periodontal issues for most of my adult life, and have always had some 5 and 6 mm depth pockets in my mouth that have been of concern, but one of them finally flared up to a 9mm pocket. My dentist gave me a referral to a periodontist, and I was about 2 days away from my appointment when I decided to google gum surgery to find out more.
