LANAP Laser Periodontal Procedures

Some dentists claim that LANAP laser treatment offers an improvement in periodontal disease treatment. However assessment of the available scientific evidence does not support this claim. A literature search using “LANAP” found no clinical trials allowing us to assess the effectiveness of the treatment method. Several poorly control assessment studies have been performed with samples sizes of 8 to 10 samples per assessment were found but all we all extremely small not allowing any appropriate assessment of the data to be made.
