American Dental Clinic & Advance American Dental Center is the only License Dental Clinic in the Middle East who performs LANAP treatment.
Approximately 80% of the Americans suffer from periodontal disease and about 97% of those with moderate to severe periodontitis are not being treated.

Another important part of the LANAP procedure is doing Occlusal Adjustment/Bite Equilibrations. The reason for thesis to allow the new attachment to adhere to the teeth surface that are stable and not moving from traumatic occlusion or uneven pressure on the bite as it is difficult for the body to heal to a moving target.
