First Patent-Pending Application for Treating Ailing and Failing Dental Implants

CERRITOS, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2015) - Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has filed a new patent application on innovations in its LAPIP™ protocol and PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser. This initiative is part of its ongoing commitment to the fight against gum disease around teeth and implants through state-of-the-art technologies and patient-friendly protocols.

"The LAPIP™ protocol is a ground-breaking clinical procedure for treatment of peri-mucositis and peri-implantitis around titanium implants," said Robert Gregg, DDS, founder of Millennium Dental Technologies and innovator of the LAPIP™ protocol.

Dental implants were seen originally as a long-term replacement for teeth, and millions are placed annually. With current dental implant failure rates over 16 percent and rising, patients are being subjected to highly invasive surgeries in an attempt to save these ailing and failing implants. The LAPIP™ protocol is a tissue-sparing, non-destructive, minimally invasive treatment with proven results.

"Our new patent application protects years of research in perfecting the LAPIP™ protocol. This patent application is for a comprehensive patent covering not only the LAPIP™ protocol itself, but also covering innovations in the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser that make the LAPIP™ protocol possible. There are omnibus claims to both," states Dr. Gregg.

Dr. Gregg also outlined plans for filing further patent applications to protect innovations in Millennium Dental Technologies' LANAP® protocol. "The LANAP® protocol is foundational to laser-assisted periodontology, and our innovations in this technique and other laser-assisted protocols, will soon be the subject of major new patent application filings," said Dr. Gregg.
