Periodontal Laser Surgery with Dr. Robert Henshaw, a Periodontist in Portland

Periodontal disease strikes millions and is the leading cause of tooth and bone loss in the jaw. But as common as gum disease is, so is delaying treatment, which isn’t good because advanced stage periodontal disease has been linked by medical research to heart disease, cancer, pre-term deliveries, diabetes and other serious conditions.

Periodontal laser surgery performed by a prominent periodontist in Portland, Dr. Robert Henshaw. He is reversing this trend with the minimally-invasive Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®). It’s the only FDA-cleared periodontal laser surgery protocol available from a leading periodontist in Portland. LANAP® delivers long-lasting, therapeutic results with less pain and side effects than traditional gum disease treatment. With periodontal laser surgery, there’s none of the cutting and heavy bleeding or long, painful recovery associated with traditional gum disease treatments. Fully supported by human histological studies, LANAP® periodontal laser surgery brings gum disease treatment to a whole new level of care.

The Remarkable PerioLase® MVP-7™ Periodontal Laser Surgery Tool

Periodontist in Portland, Dr. Henshaw, performs the LANAP® periodontal laser surgery using the PerioLase® MVP-7™. Also FDA-cleared, this dental laser is the tool of choice among the laser trained periodontist in Portland and the nation because it does what the scalpel couldn’t. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ delivers painless pulses of light that go straight to the source of infection to kill bacteria on contact. It never touches or harms the nearby healthy tissue. Once diseased tissue and bacteria is eliminated, the healthy tissue can reattach to the roots of the teeth and make them strong again. LANAP® periodontal laser surgery also encourages new bone to grow around the teeth, further lessening the chance of tooth loss.
