Affordable Dental Implants for Everyone
Dr. Bramanti is a Board-Certified Periodontist and does not employ Laser Therapy in his practice as it offers no significant clinical benefit compared to conventional periodontal treatment methods. As a Dentist-Scientist, UCSF professor, and clinical educator, Dr. Bramanti is constantly studying the scientific literature in an effort to bring the vanguard of care and highest professional standards to his patients. Since the scientific and clinical community do not soundly validate the use of Laser Therapy, Dr. Bramanti does NOT currently recommend or endorse the use of Laser Therapy for the treatment of periodontal and implant disease.

Laser therapy LANAP represents a novel treatment modality used by some periodontists in the treatment of gum disease and other periodontal problems. While current research does not support laser treatment for all forms of gum disease, it has not been shown to be very beneficial with certain cases for surgical and non-surgical treatment.
The Consensus Statement on LASER THERAPY determined by extensive study of randomized clinical trials, has been advanced by Board-Certified members of the American Academy of Periodontology. The examining body has determined that laser surgery offers NO significant clinical advantages over conventional gum treatments alone or in combination:
In patients with moderate to severe periodontal disease do lasers used alone or as an adjunct offer better clinical outcomes than Scaling and Root Planing alone?
Lasers offered a very slight advantage in deeper gum pockets >7mm
In gum pockets <7mm, lasers offered no additional improvement.
In patients with peri-implant disease, do lasers used alone or as an adjunct offer better clinical outcomes than Scaling and Root Planing alone?
Periodontal Clinicians should be cautious in setting patient expectations for outcomes of laser treatments that have not yet been rigorously evaluated.
