Dr. Conte and Dr. Guglielmoni now delivering laser treatment

Laser Periodontal Therapy™ is the FDA-cleared and patented laser gum therapy that greatly reduces the pain and recovery time associated with traditional gum surgery. Dr. Conte and Dr. Guglielmoni of The Practice SF are the first periodontists in San Francisco to be fully trained and licensed to perform this breakthrough therapy.

The PerioLase® MVP-7 is the first-ever digital dental laser in the United States marketplace, and The Practice SF is using the technology for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). The laser energy selectively removes diseased or infected pocket epithelium from the underlying connective tissue. Because the treatment spares healthy connective tissue, healing and regeneration of the tissue around the teeth is enhanced. The PerioLase® MVP-7 is the first and only laser to receive FDA clearance for the LANAP protocol, which has been clinically shown to reduce inflammation and infection around teeth and promote a healthy environment for the natural healing of wounds.


“The PerioLase is 21st century digital technology,” said Dr. Guglielmoni. “We recognized it as an important step in moving away from conventional treatments that involve the cutting away of gums.”

“PerioLase is the most advanced laser on the market today,” added Dr. Conte. “It has seven different pulse durations and operates at a wavelength that kills bacteria associated with periodontal disease. We feel it is an essential weapon in the fight against gum disease.”
