Another unique procedure that Dr. Wong is performing is LANAP. This acronym stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Protocol. It is the only FDA approved procedure that involves using a laser to help regenerate bone and gum attachment to a tooth. Periodontal disease can be serious and causes bone loss around a tooth. Not only are the results great, but it is minimally invasive to the patient.
