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 us today to learn about your options for treatment.
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 to complete the procedure.
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:
