    What Is LANAP

    LANAP is a clinical term that stands for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure. It is a modern technique that utilizes a special laser to treat gum disease and its associated symptoms.

    Traditionally, flap surgery was the only solution for gum recession and periodontal disease. It is an invasive procedure that involves incisions and sutures. Due to this reason, it has a long recovery period and a risk of post-treatment complications.

    Thanks to the advancements in periodontics, we can now address gum disease with LANAP. This treatment is completely non-invasive and offers immediate results without the need for conventional surgery.

    Benefits of LANAP Treatment

    • Less pain and discomfort: Since this procedure is non-invasive, it does not cause pain and discomfort as traditional gum surgery.
    • Rapid healing: This procedure has a short recovery period, as it does not involve sutures or gum incisions.
    • Improved gum health: The laser removes the diseased gum tissues without harming your healthy gums.
    • No gum recession: Unlike traditional gum surgery, this technique does not involve gum cutting, hence preserving your gum tissues.
    • Short recovery time: Gum surgery may take months to recover, but you can achieve proper healing within a few weeks after this treatment.
    • Minimal post-treatment risks: There is little to no pain, swelling, or discomfort after the procedure. You can easily manage it with OTC medications.

    What to Expect From LANAP Treatment

    At the time of your initial consultation, our dentist will examine the condition of your gums and jawbone to determine the severity of periodontal disease. Typically, patients with pocket depth between 5 and 6 millimeters are good candidates for this treatment.

    The procedure is carried out under local anesthesia to minimize pain and discomfort. Unlike conventional gum surgery, we do not need to incise your gums. Using a special laser, we will target the areas with infected or diseased gum tissue.

    The heat from the laser removes the targeted tissue, leaving your healthy gums intact. It also eliminates harmful bacteria and reduces the risk of further infection.

    The initial recovery period lasts for 24 to 48 hours. You can resume your normal activities within a few days. Our dentists will provide aftercare instructions and an oral care regime to help maintain the results of this treatment.
