Reverse Gum Disease with Therapeutic Laser Technology at Sleep Dentistry Defined

Gum disease affects millions of Americans. In the past, rudimentary tools to fight this disease left patients fearing the dentist. Now, using the PerioLase® MVP-7™ therapeutic laser, we can reverse gum disease without pain, and without fear.

Of course, a tool is only as good as the person using it. That’s why our team has been specially trained to use this revolutionary tool. Dr. Lampee aka Sleep Dentistry Defined has developed treatment plans for a range of patients that need to treat gum disease. Laser periodontal therapy can be used on its own, or in conjunction with other surgical or non-surgical methods to achieve the best results possible for each patient.

The LANAP Procedure and PerioLase MVP-7

Using our specialized tools and training, we can restore damage caused to your teeth and gums by gum disease. Restoration can be done in just a few steps over one or two appointments.


Gum Measurement

We start by numbing the area and measuring the size of pockets between the teeth and gums. Once we know the severity of the disease, we can take the best, least invasive approach to treatment.


Eliminate Diseased Tissue

We use the MVP-7 laser to micro target areas of bacteria, diseased tissue and pathologic proteins for removal. Thanks to the precision of the laser we can remove all bacteria below the gum-line.


Ultrasonic Cleaning

We use special instruments like ultrasonic scalers to carefully remove bacterial deposits, tartar and root surface accretions from between the gums and teeth.


Gel Clot Formation

The laser is again used to form a gel-clot between the gums and teeth, which contains healthy stem cells that promote natural regrowth of new tissue.


Natural Tissue Regrowth

One of the most amazing parts of LANAP therapy is its ability to promote natural, healthy tissue growth. Once the procedure is done, new, healthy tissue will start growing almost instantly!


Quick, Pain-Free Recovery

Most of our LANAP and dental implants Portland patients feel as good as new just a day after the procedure. We recommend basic Advil tablets if there is any discomfort. Otherwise, enjoy living disease-free!
