What is LANAP®?
LANAP® stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Protocol, and is the new gold standard for gum disease treatment. Treating gum disease used to require invasive surgical techniques involving scalpels and sutures. We would have to cut out diseased tissue, and reattach it with sutures. This technique was invasive, painful, and required a lot of healing and recovery time.
With LANAP®, we use a tiny laser to pass between the gums and the teeth without having to actually separate the gums from the teeth. This allows us to remove the gum disease infection, while leaving healthy tissue intact. This creates a better environment for healthy, fast healing, and more successful results. LANAP® can actually eliminate periodontal pockets and reverse gum recession. LANAP® stimulates new tissue growth and regeneration of bone and supporting structures.
