LANAP® therapy, or Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, represents a modern approach to treating periodontal disease, employing the specialized PerioLase® soft tissue laser to precisely target and remove diseased tissue and bacteria from the mouth. Our skilled dentists utilize this innovative technique to meticulously cleanse the tooth roots of calculus and plaque, the primary culprits behind harmful bacterial growth. Following this, the laser is adeptly used to sterilize and clean the periodontal pockets, ensuring a thorough disinfection. The procedure concludes with the repositioning of the connective gum tissue over the treated areas, setting the stage for natural and efficient healing.

LANAP periodontal therapy offers manage advantages, including:

  • Ease of Procedure: Unlike traditional methods, LANAP therapy is performed without the need for cutting or stitching, making it a straightforward and less invasive option.
  • Reduced Discomfort: Patients typically experience significantly less discomfort during and after LANAP treatment compared to conventional gum treatments, owing to its minimally invasive nature.
  • Efficient Treatment and Recovery: The procedure is characterized by shorter treatment times, requiring fewer dental visits and less time in the dental chair, leading to a faster recovery period.
  • Enhanced Outcomes: LANAP therapy is designed to preserve gum and bone tissue, promoting better long-term results without the major tissue loss associated with other treatments.
  • Safety and Cleanliness: The procedure is exceptionally clean and considered safe for patients, even those with existing health conditions.
