Smile Savers Dentistry, a Columbia-based full-service dental practice dedicated to helping every individual realize the benefits of seeing a professional and passionate dental team, this week announced that their founder, Dr. Daniel Stewart, has officially received his LANAP (short for “Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure”) Regenerative Specialist Certification.
Having completed the proficiency training for the LANAP protocol, Dr. Stewart is now an officially certified LANAP Regenerative Specialist according to the curriculum guidelines and standards for Dental Laser Education and the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry.
“I am very proud to receive certification as a Regenerative Specialist. The LANAP technology is cutting-edge and the very best in the business today. With it I have been able to give my patients phenomenal successes in addressing their periodontal concerns. I cannot recommend highly enough, the importance of using LANAP.” said Dr Stewart.
With gum disease affecting close to 85% of United States adults today, it is the #1 cause of tooth loss. The LANAP protocol helps patients keep their teeth, and in the process, ensures their mouths become healthier. This regenerative procedure enables patients to essentially re-grow parts of their gum, just like a salamander or newt when a limb or tail is pulled off.
LANAP is distinctively different from any other type of gum disease surgery today. Regeneration through the LANAP protocol is a return to the normal architecture and functional health of the mouth, while repair through traditional surgery is not. With LANAP, there are no bone grafts, stitches, artificial membranes, or biologicals used, and it can re-grow the tissues and bone lost to gum disease.
Now certified administers of LANAP regeneration, Smile Savers Dentistry can oversee LANAP periodontal surgery in a full-mouth procedure usually completed in only two, 2-hour visits. Dr. Stewart’s dental practice is one of the few dental offices in the Columbia, Maryland area that offers LANAP as an alternative to traditional gum surgery. Using the laser to treat gum disease is something that many present and future patients can take advantage of, though it’s worth noting that it is not the right procedure for every type of case study.
