LANAP-Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure
Dr. Morarasu uses a minimally invasive alternative treatment to traditional Periodontal Surgery. Laser treatment involves no cutting or suturing and will help experience a faster, easier recovery with minimal postoperative pain, bleeding and swelling.
Reports are showing that LANAP results are similar to and sometimes better than traditional osseous surgery and with fewer side effects. Patients appreciate that there is little discomfort. Retrospective studies show that in 90% of the cases pockets are reduced by at least 50%. Histology shows there is true bone regeneration most of the time.
Doctor Morarasu was fortunate to be trained in LANAP with Doctor Raymond Yukna, who has done major research on LANAP. Below is a schematic representation of the procedure.

Meet Dr. Morarasu
Dr. Morarasu was born and raised in Romania. Ukiah is his new home, after living in the Bay Area where he practiced Periodontics. Dr. Morarasu completed a residency in Advance Periodontics at the University of Colorado where he received his Certificate in Periodontology as well as his Master in the Science of Dentistry. His master thesis focused on the use of Cone Beam technology for Dental Diagnosis. He also received additional training in Implant Dentistry with Dr. Carl Misch. Dr Misch is considered a world wide expert in Implantology. Dr. Morarasu is very fortunate to be trained by him.
Dr. Morarasu practiced General Dentistry for five years in Minneapolis before starting his Graduate Program at the University of Colorado. He also taught at the University of Minnesota as an Adjunct Clinical Professor for the Department of Emergency and Comprehensive Care. He completed another residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Minnesota. With a Doctor in Dental Surgery degree and 15 years experience in the dental field he proudly says that many roles played in the dental world help him to be a better practitioner: treatment coordinator, register dental assistant, manager, general dentist, educator and periodontist. Having been a general dentist gives Dr. Morarasu greater insight into the outcomes the general dentist is attempting to achieve for the patients.
He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, an exceptional status that only 2,200 periodontists have achieved since 1939. He is a long standing member of American Academy of Periodontology and American Dental Association.
