Millennium Dental


(MDT), the developer of the FDA-cleared LANAP@ protocol for the

treatment of moderate to severe gum disease and the manufacturer of

the PerioLase@ MVP-7 digital dental


showcased the LANAP technique's clinically proven outcomes and

impressive results at the annual meeting of the Academy of

OsseoIntegration (AO) in Phoenix this month. Backed by science and

advanced research, MDT was the only laser manufacturer at the meeting,

and attendees were impressed by the full-mouth treatment results as

well as implant treatment successes exhibited. In addition, clinicians

previewed the company's ground-breaking product-display enhancement

for the PerioLase@ MVP-7 featuring the first and only Android-based

control screen in the dental laser industry. The upgrade provides true

laser-device upgradability and enhancements using revolutionary

components and is fully backward compatible.

"We are proud that the overwhelming science, advanced research and

unprecedented clinical outcomes behind the LANAP technique allowed us

to make a strong showing at this high-caliber event," says Millennium

Dental Technologies president and co-founder Robert H. Gregg II, DDS,

a practicing dentist and co-developer of the LANAP protocol for the

treatment of gum disease. "To our knowledge, other laser companies

lack this type of scientific evidence, and were conspicuous in their

absence at this meeting. We were pleased to openly share our proven

regenerative outcomes with this group of professionals who certainly

understand the importance of bone regrowth extremely well."

In the field of laser dentistry, those who have actively and

continuously added to the body of knowledge, innovations, science and

manufacturing for an extended period of time are few and far between.

Although the LANAP@ protocol has been proven in multiple studies, MDT

is still committed to acceptance through research. The annual AO

meeting provided an ideal opportunity for MDT to review its latest

research as well as the LANAP protocol's exciting regenerative results

in detail. It also provided a preview of the company's

first-of-its-kind integration of Android technology into a laser

periodontal-treatment device.

Millennium Dental Technologies co-founders Drs. Gregg and Delwin

McCarthy have been dedicated to advanced laser periodontal treatment

for more than 20 years. The pair identified the safe and effective

combination of operating parameters that evolved into the critical

operations of the LANAP protocol through their research in the early

1990s. This month, Dr. Lloyd Tilt, the first periodontist to adopt the

technique, published clinical data collected over 12 years of

performing the LANAP procedure. The clinical review details impressive

tooth survival over time. Dr. Mark Nevins, a LANAP-trained physician

since 2009, also added to the LANAP protocol's vast body of research

by presenting a human histological study of the treatment that at the

American Academy for Periodontology Corporate Forum in November 2011.

Perhaps most impressively, last August, the company launched a

University-based, five-center study comparing LANAP treatment to

traditional scalpel-and-suture gum disease therapy. The study will

follow 75 targeted patients for 12 months, with preliminary results

expected in 2013.

An increasing number of dental professionals are taking notice of the

FDA-cleared procedure for treating gum disease without the

traditional, painful cut-and-sew technique. The LANAP protocol

utilizes a laser to clear away infection without cutting the gums,

resulting in clinically proven regenerative outcomes. Patients

experience far less post-operative pain, require fewer treatment

sessions and enjoy quicker recovery times and lasting results. To

By providing a simple and comfortable experience with unique

bone-building clinical results, MDT's FDA-cleared LANAP protocol

removes the fear from gum disease treatment, offering a vastly less

painful and less invasive regenerative treatment alternative to

conventional scalpel/suture flap surgery; its PerioLase@ MVP-7 is a

6-watt free-running variable pulsed Nd:YAG dental laser featuring

digital technology and 7 pulse durations -- the most available on the

market -- giving it the power and versatility to perform a wide range

of soft- and hard-tissue laser procedures. Established in 1990, the

company's founding clinicians, Robert H. Gregg, II, D.D.S., and Delwin

K. McCarthy, D.D.S., continue to operate the company with a shared

vision and purpose: To create better clinical outcomes in periodontal

disease patients -- and to remain true to the guiding principle --

"It's all about the patient." For more information, visit
