The LANAP® procedure helps avoid the use of traditional surgery and sutures by utilizing specialized lasers (about the thickness of 3 hairs) and techniques to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets in the gum tissue.
LANAP® treatment is capable of creating an environment that favors regeneration of the tooth supporting periodontal tissues. In other words, it prepares the supporting tissues around teeth affected by periodontal disease to regenerate themselves through the natural healing capability of the body.
The LANAP® procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser technology to remove the diseased tissue and bacteria. The laser is also used to help seal the pocket so that new germs can not get back in. This treatment minimizes trauma to the gum tissue, providing a more comfortable procedure for the patient than traditional methods and significantly reducing healing time.
