Gum disease has been linked to a variety of health complications including heart disease and low birth-weight babies. Until now the majority of the treatment options available were invasive and painful. LANAP is minimally invasive and does not require the cutting or stitching of the gums!



Millions of Americans are suffering from gum disease. But only a small percentage actually receive treatment to restore their oral health. Gum disease is an epidemic in the United States and around the world. It has been linked to a variety of health complications including heart disease, diabetes, pancreatic cancer, and low birth-weight babies. Until now, gum disease treatment options included invasive surgery. This involved cutting down the gum tissue or extracting the teeth to prepare for dental implants or dentures. Today, laser gum surgery offers an alternative to traditional procedures, and this means that patients no longer have to fear or put off getting the treatment they need!


With the introduction of the PerioLase® MP-7™ and Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) in Westchester, CA, we are able to remove and kill just the bacteria trapped in the pockets of the gums and leave healthy gum tissue intact. This makes it easier for the gums to reattach to the tooth surface and speeds up the healing time. Patients undergoing laser gum surgery with LANAP® experience minimal pain, discomfort, gum recession, and sensitivity than other procedures, and enjoy more predictable, long-term results.

LANAP® is the first and only FDA-cleared laser protocol for the treatment of periodontitis and is proven through science and research studies in the United States and abroad. Dr. Glenn Sperbeck in Westchester, CA is proud to offer patients this laser gum surgery procedure, and has found it to be a very effective treatment for periodontal disease. We have found that it is much more feasible to save teeth that have previously been deemed hopeless, because the laser procedure promotes bone regeneration around the tooth.


Faster Healing Times

Since laser gum surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, the body can heal itself very quickly.

Less Discomfort

The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser has biostimulation capabilities that ensure little or no discomfort to the patient. It is very rare for us to prescribe pain medication after laser gum surgery.

Less Downtime

Most patients undergoing laser treatment can go back to their daily activities the very same day.

Little to No Gum Recession

Unlike traditional gum surgery procedures, the laser does not lower the level of the gum line so there is little to no gum recession.

Less Inflammation and Bleeding

Since it is such a targeted treatment, the PerioLase® MVP-7™ can remove up to 90 percent of the inflammation in your mouth after a single visit. This results in minimal bleeding and less inflammation of the gums.

Saves Your Teeth

You can save and keep your natural teeth after periodontitis treatment by undergoing a laser procedure.

Bone Regeneration

LANAP® is the only protocol scientifically proven to regenerate the bone around the teeth.

Safe and Effective

Laser gum surgery has zero contraindications, which means that it does not interfere with any disease or medication.
