Do you have advanced periodontal disease? The experienced team at Poulos and Somers in Denver can help with laser therapy.


LANAP Laser Therapy in Denver

Gum disease is a serious condition that affects about 50% of American adults. If you have advanced periodontal disease, LANAP laser surgery can restore and regenerate your soft tissue and bone, and save your natural teeth. This treatment is a less invasive (and often less intimidating) alternative to traditional gum surgery. If you believe you suffer from periodontal disease, call or contact us online today to learn about your options for treatment at our Denver practice.

How It Works

The Laser Therapy Process

During LANAP laser therapy, our dentists use the PerioLase MVP-7 laser to remove diseased gum tissue, restore your teeth, and encourage the growth of new periodontal ligaments and bone. After a thorough oral exam, one of our doctors will use a small laser fiber to clear away infected gum tissue without using a scalpel or cutting your gums. Then, this laser is used to clean tooth roots, removing tartar and plaque from the entire gum line. Typically, one half of your mouth is treated during each session, so you’ll come back for a second appointment at our Denver office to complete the procedure.

The Benefits Of LANAP Laser Therapy

Because of the unique lasers used in the process of LANAP therapy and the non-invasive nature of the procedure, it has a number of unique benefits compared to traditional surgery:

  • Less pain, faster recovery time – There are no incisions or stitches required when using LANAP, which helps speed up recovery time and minimize discomfort. Most LANAP patients resume their normal activities immediately. In contrast, recovering from traditional periodontal surgical procedures can take between 2-4 weeks.
  • Stronger, healthier tissue – The PerioLase laser tool uses a special light that stimulates your gum tissue and promotes a better healing response, resulting in healthier and stronger gums.

  • Lower risk of postoperative infections – Laser tools are less invasive and sterilize the areas they contact. Because of this, and because there are no open oral wounds after treatment, there is a much lower risk of postoperative infection.
