the tooth of dark grooves and shallow cavities. This procedure would

Wilke was the first dentist in San Antonio to adopt this technology
for the treatment of gum disease. This patented procedure is termed Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) or simply Laser Periodontal Therapy. Without scalpels, gum disease is removed
with laser light and then the gumline is treated so that the disease
cannot easily return. In fact, our procedure was featured on a news
segment aired on a local San Antonio television station. Watch the video
