    Millennium Dental announces research showing superiority of LANAP protocol over conventional treatment
    Millennium Dental Technologies Inc (Cerritos, CA) announced new research that shows that the minimally-invasive LANAP protocol with the PerioLase MVP-7 laser can eliminate or markedly reduce these dangerous microbial pathogens around teeth. As published in the Journal of the International Academy of Periodontology, the LANAP protocol is able to immediately decrease bacteria associated with severe human periodontitis to levels undetectable by microbial culture, even in periodontal pockets greater than 6 millimeters. The study compared adults with severe periodontitis, who were treated with the LANAP protocol, with others, who received conventional ultrasonic root debridement alone. The results found that 85% of patients treated with the LANAP protocol were completely culture-negative immediately after treatment for red and orange complex bacterial species, which are strongly associated with severe periodontitis, in comparison to only 16.7% of patients treated with conventional ultrasonic root debridement.

    Moose rings Alaska home's doorbell
    A moose used the doorbell to awaken a couple in Alaska. The couple thought maybe it was an aftershock or some kids playing a prank when the doorbell rang in their Anchorage home early Wednesday. Kyle Stultz told local news he looked out the door and found nothing. He assumed it was kids playing "ding-dong ditch." Stultz decided to check his security camera. The video showed a large moose backing its caboose right into the doorbell. The family was relieved it was nothing else.
