CERRITOS, Calif., July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dentistry Today's Readers have recognized the PerioLase MVP-7 as one of the top 100 products in 2016. The 30th annual award showcases what is new and innovative in dentistry.
"We're honored to have been recognized by our colleagues and peers," comments Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, founder of Millennium Dental Technologies (MDT). "This award follows MDT's receipt of a completely new, novel, pioneering FDA clearance for True Regeneration using the PerioLase MVP-7 based on completely new scientific evidence and clinical performance data."
The pioneering FDA clearance states: Periodontal regeneration - true regeneration of the attachment apparatus (new cementum, new periodontal ligament, and new alveolar bone) on a previously diseased root surface when used specifically in the LANAP® Protocol. 510(k) 151763
The PerioLase MVP-7 is the only dental laser specifically designed for the LANAP protocol. The unique wavelength targets and destroys the bacteria causing gum disease during a minimally-invasive, highly effective treatment proven to re-grow bone.
"What's really special about being chosen for this award is it reflects the votes of general dentists and specialists as to the products they see as innovative and game changes," remarks Dawn M. Gregg, DDS, MDT Vice President and Training Director. "Over 2,000 of our colleagues are helping patients reverse advanced gum disease with the LANAP protocol. The growing interest from the dental community in minimally invasive, tissue-sparing, fiber-optic delivered, and patented laser protocol is matched by patients demanding less invasive treatment options."
