									Seattle Periodontists Offer FDA-cleared LANAP Treatment for Patients with Advanced Gum Disease


Doctors Michael Cohen and Robert Gottlieb were among the first to perform LANAP in Seattle at their
practice, Implant & Periodontal Associates Northwest (IPANW)), which has offices in Kenmore and Richland,
WA

Online PR News – 12-June-2013 – An innovative therapy shown to grow new gum and bone tissue is being
performed at Implant & Periodontal Associates Northwest (IPANW). Headed by Seattle periodontists Dr.
Michael Cohen and Dr. Robert Gottlieb, IPANW was the first specialty practice in Washington to offer this
FDA-cleared procedure, which quickly and effectively treats periodontal disease.


“Unlike traditional gum disease treatment, which requires incisions and stitches, LANAP is non-surgical and
offers a quick recovery time,” says Dr. Cohen. “But, the greatest advantage of LANAP is its ability to help
stimulate the growth of new tissue, which can guard against tooth loss.”


Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in American adults. LANAP not only stops the
progression of the disease, but it has also been shown to stimulate the growth of new cells in the tooth root
and connective tissue, which are important for keeping the teeth strong and healthy.


How does LANAP work? A special laser is pointed on bacteria buildup and damaged tissue, completely
removing it while sparing healthy cells. The laser also sterilizes and seals the area, and its patented
wavelength actually stimulates the growth of stem cells in the gum and tooth structures. “While LANAP can’t
completely restore damage caused by gum disease,” explains Dr. Gottlieb, “if done in time, it can help save
your smile.”


Patients who get LANAP are advised to maintain good dental care habits, including regular professional
cleanings and exams, to help ensure their periodontal disease will not come back.


“I encourage anyone diagnosed with serious gum disease to look at treatment options, including LANAP,”
says Dr. Cohen. Interested patients can learn more about LANAP and other periodontal therapies on their
website www.ipanw.com, or by calling 425-486-9111 to set up an exam or consultation for LANAP treatment
in Seattle.
