More PerioLase Periodontal Packages were sold at the 2016 CDA meeting than the past 4 years combined. “The tide seems to shifting from periodontal specialists back to general practitioners, and it’s seismic,” commented Robert H Gregg, DDS, inventor of the LANAP Protocol.
Eight years ago, MDT saw a shift of sales from general dentists to periodontal specialists with the company’s FDA clearance for ‘cementum-mediated new attachment.’ In March 2016, MDT received FDA clearance for periodontal true regeneration – new cementum, new periodontal ligament and new alveolar bone.
“The new FDA clearance for True Regeneration is a clear, clean, simple concept for non-specialists to appreciate the huge significance that the LANAP Protocol makes for patients suffering from gum disease,” remarks Dawn M. Gregg, DDS, MDT vice president operations. “Patients also easily understand the difference between regeneration and other treatment options including ‘deep cleaning’ and classic bone surgery.”
