LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a patented laser gum treatment for periodontal disease. When you receive LANAP therapy, our periodontists and team use a soft tissue laser to eliminate diseased tissue and bacteria in your mouth. We then remove calculus and plaque from the tooth roots to eliminate the source of harmful bacteria, after which the laser finishes sterilizing and cleaning the periodontal pocket. The connective gum tissue is then placed back over the area to begin the healing process.
LANAP gum treatment has many benefits, including:
Easy to perform – there is no cutting or suturing involved in this procedure
Less discomfort – LANAP treatment is more comfortable than traditional gum procedures, both during and after your treatment
Faster treatment time – your LANAP treatment requires fewer visits and less chair time
Quicker recovery – LANAP is minimally invasive, leading to a much swifter recovery than traditional gum surgery
Better long-term results – LANAP does not involve any major loss of gum tissue or remove bone tissue
Safe and hygienic – LANAP therapy is very hygienic and is generally safe for individuals with pre-existing medical conditions
