Roman Shlafer, DDS, PLLC, has, for the last several years, been included in the ranks of an elite group of dental professionals who can provide the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure to their patients for periodontal disease treatment. Only about one percent of dental professionals in the country are trained on this procedure. Patients come from across the state to have the Periolase treatment done if there is not a dentist near them who offers it.

Periodontal or gum disease affects millions of American adults across the country each year. Unfortunately, many of these individuals do not visit a dentist to get treatment. As the disease advances, it can cause gum pain, bleeding, receding gums, bone loss in the jaw, and tooth loss.

Dr. Shlafer wants to alleviate these problems by providing the periodontal disease treatment to patients suffering from gum disease. The new LANAP procedure is only minimally invasive so it promotes a quick healing process. In fact, many patients are able to return to normal activities the same day. In addition, only minimal pain or discomfort is felt with this laser surgery. Results have been excellent, and teeth that might otherwise have been lost were saved with this laser procedure.

Dr. Shlafer uses a probe to determine the depth of the gum pockets so that he can use the laser to remove the bacteria located there, in addition to diseased gum tissue. Next, he uses the fiber optic tip of the laser to remove bacteria. The PerioLase MVP-7 laser is very selective and does not harm healthy gum tissue. Instead, it actually stimulates it to attach to the teeth after the damaged tissue has been removed. This laser has also been scientifically proven to help bone begin the regeneration process.

Patients in the Detroit area do not need to put off getting periodontal disease treatment. Instead, they can get the help they need by taking advantage of the LANAP laser treatment. To learn more about the effects of gum disease and the benefits of the LANAP procedure, visit
