  • Recovery is rapid – within 24 hours for most patients and usually without pain medication.
  • Laser dentistry generates new bone growth to support and protect existing teeth.

LANAP Case Study


When providing laser treatment for patients, Drs. Tom and Mark McCawley uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™, which is one of the most advanced and reputable laser tools available and is cleared by the FDA for use in dentistry.

This highly accurate laser gives Drs. Tom and Mark McCawley a more precise way to eliminate bacteria under the gum line. Laser is not concerned with healthy gum tissue, as it only looks for bacteria and disease, making the procedure more comfortable since there is significantly less bleeding and swelling.

Laser delivers additional benefits for patients with gum disease, including new bone growth in the jaw. Gum disease attacks bone and the longer you wait to get treatment, the greater the risk is for tooth loss. Laser is remarkable in its ability to reverse bone loss by generating new growth around your teeth, reinforcing them so that they have a better chance of surviving. Medical studies on advanced gum disease treatment in Fort Lauderdale, FL and our own patient outcomes show that laser fights tooth loss!


Gum disease affects many people, yet too few seek treatment because of the discomfort and stress associated with it. Laser dentistry in Fort Lauderdale, FL with Drs. Tom and Mark McCawley replaces gum disease treatment of the past, making it comfortable, fast, and exceedingly effective.

Laser therapy is widely used today across a number of healthcare fields. In dentistry, lasers were cleared by the Food and Drug Administration in 1991 and has dramatically changed the way periodontists treat a variety of dental conditions, including moderate to severe gum disease. Today, Drs. Tom and Mark McCawley use laser to comfortably diagnose and heal many types of soft and hard oral tissue diseases with greater accuracy, efficiency, and outcomes.

Unlike sunshine, which generates a rainbow of different wavelengths, laser light used in dentistry consists of just one beam or wavelength, which can be used to identify and remove diseased tissue and bacteria more precisely and without harming other areas in the mouth.
