Laser Gum Surgery

Welcome to our dental practice, where we are proud to offer the latest in periodontal care, including the LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) treatment. LANAP is a revolutionary laser therapy that effectively treats gum disease and promotes gum tissue regeneration. If you’re seeking a minimally invasive and highly effective solution for gum disease, LANAP may be the answer you are looking for.

Understanding LANAP:

LANAP is a cutting-edge procedure that utilizes laser technology to target and eliminate bacteria and diseased tissue in the gums. It is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery, providing numerous advantages in terms of patient comfort, reduced healing time, and predictable results.

How LANAP works:

  1. Laser disinfection: During the LANAP procedure, our dentists use specialized dental lasers to remove bacteria and infected tissue from the gum pockets. This laser energy selectively targets the diseased tissue while leaving the healthy gum tissue intact, promoting optimal healing.
  2. Calculus removal: The laser is then used to gently break up and remove calculus (tartar) deposits from the tooth roots. This process helps eliminate the source of infection and promotes a clean and smooth surface.
  3. Bone regeneration: LANAP also helps to regenerate lost bone support for teeth by stimulating the production of collagen and bone. This provides better long-term results and less tooth loss over the years.
  4. Gum Tissue Reattachment: As the healing progresses, the healthy gum tissue is reattached to the tooth roots, effectively sealing the gum pockets and reducing their depth. This reattachment helps prevent further bacterial invasion and a healthy gum-to-tooth relationship.

The Benefits of LANAP:

Choosing LANAP for the treatment of gum disease offers several significant advantages:

  1. Minimally invasive: LANAP is minimally invasive that eliminates the need for traditional gum surgery, which involves cutting and suturing the gums. The use of laser technology reduced post-operative discomfort, bleeding, and swelling promoting a more comfortable experience for the patient.
  2. Faster Healing Time: Compared to traditional gum surgery, LANAP typically results in faster healing times. The laser’s precision and ability to stimulate tissue regeneration contribute to accelerating healing.
  3. Preservation of Healthy Tissue: LANAP targets only the diseased tissue, leaving healthy gum tissue intact. This preservation of healthy tissue supports the natural healing process and promotes the regeneration of new gum tissue and bone.
  4. Long-term results: LANAP has shown excellent long-term results in treating gum disease. By eliminating bacteria and infected tissue, LANAP helps prevents disease recurrence and supports long-term gum health.
