LANAP - Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure
Laser Periodontal or Gum Treatment Achieving True Regeneration
Until recently, the only options for treating periodontal disease have been invasive. Effective treatment - osseus surgery, a 70 year old technique - involves cutting away infected gum tissue, drilling into bone, removing teeth, and applying stitches for closure of the gum area. Traditional gum surgery comes with side effects, which include gum line recession and tooth sensitivity. Advances in dental technology have provided a less invasive and more thorough alternative using the PerioLase MVP Laser and the LANAP Protocol.
LANAP is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery which requires no cutting or stitching. LANAP is a regenerative technique which helps regrow and rejuvenate the gum tissue, rather than cutting it away. LANAP treats gum disease without the pain, gum line recession and increased sensitivity traditionally associated with periodontal treatments.
