CERRITOS, Calif., Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Dental Technologies announced its sponsorship of a live demonstration November 29th at the 2016 Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM) showcasing the LAPIP™ protocol for failing dental implants. Dental implants, once considered the permanent replacement for natural teeth, have failure rates of 20-40%. (Lindhe & Meyle 2008, Costa et al 2012) The GNYDM session, "The LAPIP Protocol: A Laser-Mediated Solution for the Ailing and Failing Implant," led by Charles R. Braga, DMD, MMS, will provide attendees with the rare opportunity to watch a live surgery plus learn about the science and benefits of treating peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis using the LAPIP protocol.
The LAPIP protocol solves the unique challenges faced in treating ailing and failing dental implants using a less invasive, tissue-saving method preferred by patients. While traditional treatments for failing dental implants include cutting the patient's gums, placement of foreign exogenous growth factors or artificial membranes, then stitching up the site. In contrast, LAPIP treatment helps maintain the integrity of the structural tissue of the gum with positive results - 95% of the failing implants treated with the LAPIP protocol have reintegrated in the pocket and stabilized with bone growth of 3-8 threads. Additionally, it is built upon the foundation of the LANAP protocol, the first and only FDA cleared treatment for True Regeneration™.
Attendees will receive 3 CE credits upon completion of the course. The session will take place on Tuesday, November 29 from 10:00am-12:30pm.
