UPDATE: Long Island Periodontist Emphasizes Potential of LANAP for Treating Gum Disease

Dr. Sam Morhaim of Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates Performs Laser Periodontal Treatment to Provide a More Comfortable Process and Ideal Outcome for Patients

GREAT NECK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Dr. Sam Morhaim, a periodontist on Long Island, strives to provide state-of-the-art periodontal treatments for improved efficacy and patient comfort. With this goal in mind, he is proud to offer the advanced technique of Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, also known as LANAP™ (PerioLase MVP-7™ by Millennium Technology). He describes the laser treatment as a "revolutionary procedure," noting its significant improvements in comparison to conventional gum surgery.

The PerioLase MVP-7™ is the first and only FDA cleared laser with an outcome claim of regenerating gum and bone tissues associated with periodontal disease. Dr. Morhaim highly recommends this advanced procedure to his patients as an alternative to traditional surgery, which often requires longer, more frequent visits to the office. In addition, he explains that conventional treatment of gum disease typically results in root sensitivity, stitches, and significant post-operative discomfort. According to Dr. Morhaim, "You're trading one problem for another."

Through his experience as a LANAP™ clinician, Dr. Morhaim has found the treatment to provide improved oral health results and an overall positive response from patients. Furthermore, by undergoing gum disease treatment using the LANAP™ treatment protocol, Dr. Morhaim informs patients they can look forward to a number of advantages including:

  • Little to no downtime
  • Bladeless procedure with no sutures
  • Virtually no pain, swelling, or sensitivity
  • Minimal gum recession
  • No need for bone grafting

Another major advantage of the LANAP™ protocol in comparison to conventional surgical procedures is the treatment of medically compromised patients is facilitated due to its conservative approach. An example of this would be diabetics and patients who are on blood thinners.

During the procedure, Dr. Morhaim utilizes a laser light, guiding it between the gum and tooth to remove harmful bacteria and to stimulate the regeneration of new, healthy tissue. He notes that the majority of the treatment is done in two, two-hour visits during which he will also adjust the occlusion (bite) as necessary. Over the following three months, Dr. Morhaim will monitor the patient's results, making sure they are healing properly and avoiding further damage from the disease. He says feedback from his Long Island and surrounding area patients has been nothing but positive, noting that many claim they would do it all over again, as well as recommend it to others.

Dr. Morhaim is one of the few LANAP™ clinicians in the region who is certified by Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc., the manufacturer of the LANAP™ system. He advises anyone interested in the procedure to do their research and find a certified professional, as this is the only way to know they are qualified and specially trained to perform the laser treatment.
