LANAP vs. Traditional
Osseous Surgery

For many years, patients diagnosed with periodontal disease lived in discomfort and pain, dreading the procedures required to treat the disease. The major complaints about traditional periodontal surgery include pain, tooth sensitivity, significant gum recession, and length of the surgical procedures.

The pain and complications of traditional gum surgery are a thing of the past! We understand that patients may feel anxious when exploring the available periodontal treatment options, but we are excited to offer a revolutionary laser gum disease treatment that helps put our patients at ease.

LANAP®, also known as Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is the only laser periodontal disease treatment approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA). With LANAP®, there is no cutting or stitches, and there is much less pain with laser treatment than with traditional surgery, both during and after the procedure.

The LANAP Procedure

During the procedure, a tiny laser fiber (about the thickness of three hairs) is inserted between the tooth and the gum, and the infection is cleared away. All it takes is two 2-hour visits and several short follow-up visits. The recovery period is less than 24 hours, so you won’t lose time from work. Laser therapy has been proven safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes, hemophilia, or those taking “blood thinning” medications such as Plavix or Coumadin. With LANAP®, periodontal treatment has never been so convenient, with minimal pain and faster healing time.

No Cutting, No Sutures

LANAP uses lasers to treat gum disease so there is no need for cutting or sutures.

24 Hour Recovery Period

Many patients find they are back to work within 24 hours of their treatment.

Long Lasting Results

95% of patients treated by LANAP remain stable after five years.
