Laser Periodontal Treatment

The leading laser gum therapy in Melbourne.

Wyndham Periodontics and Dental Implants now offers a minimally invasive way to treat gum disease using Laser Assisted New Attachment Protocol (LANAP®). Dr Leela R Movva obtained further training and certification in United States to use LANAP® protocol for gum disease treatment.

Gum disease isn’t widely talked about, but can have a big impact on your life.  Patients suffering from gum disease often feel less confident and fear losing their teeth.  Dr Leela R Movva is certified in a unique laser gum disease therapy, the LANAP® protocol.

The LANAP® protocol uses the specific wavelength PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser to vaporize bacteria deep within the pockets of the gums while leaving healthy tissue intact. A tiny fiber about the width of three human hairs in inserted between the gum tissue and teeth, where it targets and destroysbacteria deep within the pockets of the gums without affecting healthy tissue. Patients undergoing this type of treatment enjoy fast healing times and more predictable results.

Because of the gentle nature of the procedure, patients typically see immediate results with less bleeding when brushing and less bad breath.  Of course, your gums need time to recover and heal, but after LANAP® treatment, you can drive your car, go back to work, or do anything else you like.
