LANAP Gum Treatment

LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a minimally invasive surgical therapy designed for the treatment of periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease. This modern technique utilizes a specialized dental laser, the PerioLase MVP-7, to target and eliminate bacteria and diseased tissue while preserving healthy gum tissue.

During the procedure, the laser fiber, which is about the thickness of three human hairs, is inserted between the gum and tooth, removing the infected tissue and killing harmful bacteria without cutting the gums.

LANAP promotes clotting and allows the body to recover naturally, fostering the regeneration of bone and tissue around the teeth. This procedure typically results in less discomfort, swelling, and bleeding compared to traditional gum surgery. The risk of infection is also reduced, and recovery times are notably faster, often with patients returning to their normal routine the same day. LANAP is FDA-cleared and has been shown to be effective in promoting gum tissue reattachment and bone growth, thereby saving teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted. It's an advanced alternative to conventional periodontal surgery, offering a less painful and more patient-friendly approach to treating gum disease.
