1. Studies of this minimally invasive treatment with the Millenium MVP-7 Perio-lase laser has comparable results to traditional periodontal regeneration therapy while other lasers used in the same manner have comparable results to initial periodontal treatment. That usually means no regeneration.
2.The Millenium MVP-7 Perio-lase laser specifically targets the pigmented bacteria which cause periodontal disease. These bacteria under a microscope are pigmented. Petri dish experiments have shown that the Perio-lase can stop the growth of these bacteria while other lasers can’t.
3. The Millenium MVP-7 Perio-lase laser energy can penetrate into 4-15mm into unhealthy gum tissue without requiring its removal. This is the typical amount of gum pocket depth that is common in patients who have periodontal disease. Other lasers, however, cannot penetrate as deep. In fact, they are non specific and remove healthy gum tissue with the unhealthy gum tissue. The Millenium MVP-7 Perio-lase, by keeping healthy gum tissue intact, it may allow for regeneration or new stronger attachment of healthy gum to the teeth. This type of healing by the Millenium MVP-7 Perio-lase laser will seal away the bacteria which cause gum disease.
4. The Millenium MVP-7 Perio-lase laser is specific in differentiating infected gum tissue from healing gum tissue, which just happen to look similar. Other lasers cannot differentiate between the two and will remove both preventing regeneration.
5. The wavelength of 1,064 nm, which happens to be the same as the Millenium MVP-7 Perio-lase laser, has been shown to have healing qualities in nature and beneficial for biostimulation. This makes this laser a natural option in treating periodontal disease.Next: Dental Laser Comparison »
