New article published on LANAP in the AAP Journal. P. 96-103http://onlinedigeditions.com/publication/?i=155994&p=66 Introduction: The focus of periodontal surgical procedures has shifted over the past three decades from philosophy basedon resection (subtractive) to one of regeneration of lost tissues (additive). This shift has had particular significance in cases of advancedperiodontitis. When a patient presents with severe attachment loss, regeneration cannot take place until the etiologic factorshave been effectively managed or reversed and the disease progression arrested. Traditional surgical techniques have been successfulin facilitating access and addressing the goal of “pocket elimination.” However, such surgical methods often result in unpleasantside effects, which can be painful and disfiguring. Clinicians have come to accept previous tissue breakdown as often irreversible.Additionally, the theory behind conventional pocket elimination was to produce an environment that promoted ongoing disease controlby facilitating personal oral hygiene. At its best, traditional pocket surgery often falls short of achieving these goals and objectives.Additionally, conventional resective surgical techniques do not adequately address esthetic concerns, whereas surgical techniques,which are directed toward regeneration, have as their ideal outcome the preservation and/or restoration of lost periodontal tissues.Case Series: This case series presents six clinical cases illustrating favorable results using laser-assisted new attachmentprocedure. In all cases, mobility and other

This video illustrates the reason why gum surgery should not be done any more. Or at least used as a last resort. This technique continues to be used to this day.
