In the old days before LANAP, gum surgery was painful and sensitive. The
dentist used a scalpel to make an incision and scraped the tooth with
an instrument to remove the plaque and tartar. In some cases, the dentist
had to remove some bone around the tooth which is very uncomfortable.
The treatment took several visits to complete. The gums were stitched
and closed around the tooth and the recovery was very slow and sensitive.
A lot of patients would start the procedures, but often would not continue
and would delay the treatment due to the above reasons. The LANAP System
target and remove only diseased gum. Periodontal Gum Therapy Greenville
