This presentation will compare and contrast conventional surgical approaches (with flap access and biomaterials) with laser-assisted new attachment procedures (LANAP). The goal of periodontal therapy is to regenerate the periodontium and reestablish new cementum, periodontal ligament, and bone adjacent to the previously diseased root surface. This presentation will present a human histologic study evaluating LANAP therapy in addition to case examples from clinical experience.
