Value of the LANAP and LAPIP Protocols Increases Again
Published: Sep 11, 2018
CERRITOS, Calif., Sept. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of two new USPTO patents for the LANAP® and LAPIP™ protocols (US patent 9943379 B2 and US patent 9597160 B1, respectively), and the value they bring to dentists and their patients receiving treatment, Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. is announcing an increase in the investment for acquiring the PerioLase® Periodontal Package™. Effective Saturday, October 27, 2018, the first day of the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Periodontology, the investment will increase a modest 4% of $4,995 from $124,995 to $129,995. This represents an average monthly payment adjustment of $97, from $2420 to $2517, for the ability to regenerate the destroyed periodontium in effected patients.
"The LANAP and LAPIP protocols are unique in dentistry," states Robert H. Gregg II, DDS, Founder and President of Millennium Dental Technologies. "There has been a constant demand for 'more research' to prove the efficacy of the LANAP protocol throughout the years. Millennium has continually responded to this demand; investing over a million dollars in rigorous scientific research, including a multi-center clinical trial and two human histological studies published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals. As the body of evidence supporting the LANAP and LAPIP protocols has increased, it has driven a parallel increase in the total value of the PerioLase Periodontal Package. This modest price increase is overwhelmingly justified based on the 2 recent patents issued for LANAP and LAPIP protocols."
As research establishes proof of the efficacy of the LANAP and LAPIP protocols, recognition and adoption is occurring within universities, state dental boards, VA hospitals, and the US Armed Services.
The PerioLase Periodontal Package includes the PerioLase MVP-7 dental laser, turn-key package of accessories, equipment, patient & practice integration materials, 4 clinical mentors, 5 days of live-patient, hands-on training for the LANAP and LAPIP protocols through the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry, and a 6-month clinical results guarantee.
"The ever increasing body of scientific evidence and intellectual property supporting the LANAP and LAPIP protocols is coupled with expanded training. These factors dramatically reduce any perceived risks to doctors and patients," adds Dawn M. Gregg, DDS, Millennium Dental Technologies' Vice President of Operations and Director of Training for the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry.
The PerioLase MVP-7 for the LANAP protocol is the first and only medical device to achieve FDA clearance for True Periodontal Regeneration - the regeneration of new alveolar bone, new periodontal ligament and new cementum - based on scientific and clinical evidence.
