Protect Your Smile and Health in Comfort

Gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease, is quite common and can manifest silently or with bleeding during brushing or flossing. In this stage, plaque transforms into tartar (calculus), a stubborn biofilm of bacteria that brushing alone cannot remove. Tartar can persistently irritate surrounding tissues, leading to gum recession and periodontal pockets.

This process can progress rapidly without intervention from our periodontists, resulting in bone loss and loose teeth. Periodontitis, an advanced stage of gum disease, is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Fortunately, LANAP periodontal disease treatment offers effective restoration of oral health with minimal disruption to daily routines.

What Is Laser Gum Surgery?

LANAP laser gum disease treatment represents a cutting-edge approach to addressing gum disease. Unlike traditional methods, it is minimally invasive, eliminating the need for scalpels or cutting of unhealthy gum tissue.

By harnessing concentrated light energy, the LANAP laser precisely targets and removes affected tissue while sterilizing the area. This promotes the reattachment of healthy gum tissue to the teeth and surrounding areas, reducing gum recession. Compared to alternative treatments, LANAP is faster, less invasive, and significantly enhances patient comfort.

Benefits of LANAP Gum Surgery

LANAP Surgery Vs. Traditional Surgery

LANAP laser gum surgery offers a revolutionary alternative to traditional gum surgery methods. Unlike traditional techniques, LANAP does not involve cutting or suturing, leading to reduced post-operative pain and discomfort. Patients typically experience a shorter recovery time with LANAP, often returning to their normal activities the same day.

LANAP promotes gum tissue regeneration and reduces the risk of infection, making it a highly effective and minimally invasive option for treating gum disease. Its precision and gentleness make LANAP laser gum surgery a preferred choice for patients seeking optimal oral health outcomes with minimal discomfort and downtime compared to traditional gum surgery.

Am I a Candidate for LANAP?

The best candidates for LANAP laser gum surgery are those who suffer from moderate to severe periodontal disease and are seeking gingivitis treatment. These patients will usually have had multiple visits to our periodontists for evaluation, deep cleanings and scaling, and other treatments.

Other candidates may include those with recurring or persistent pockets around the teeth and visible signs of inflammation or infection in the gum tissue. Suppose you are experiencing bleeding, inflammation, gum recession, pain, or discomfort when eating or brushing. In that case, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our periodontists to determine if LANAP laser gum surgery may be the right solution.
