Perhaps the most effective treatment for periodontal disease is the LANAP Procedure. It is the only laser designed specially for this patented and FDA approved procedure. For patients with moderate to severe periodontal disease, LANAP treatment can mean less discomfort, faster healing, and longer lasting results than traditional periodontal treatments. As many as 98% of patients report stability after five years, compared to 5% with conventional periodontal surgery.
You will receive a local anesthetic to eliminate any possible discomfort. A general anesthetic isn’t necessary unless you want it, because the LANAP Procedure is much less traumatic. A tiny laser fiber about the thickness of three hairs is inserted between the tooth and the gum, and the infection is cleared away. The procedure normally take just two 2-hour sessions or a half day.
Advantages of LANAP:
1.Only FDA approved Laser to treat gum disease
2. Only Laser shown to regrow bone around teeth(sometime)
3. Like Lasiks (just for the eyes) just for the mouth
4. Less gum recession
6. Quicker healing and recovery
7.Usually less expensive then conventional periodontal surgery
