LANAP (Laser Assisted New-Attachment Porcedure)
Laser Periodontal TherapyTM is a laser-based apporoach to gum disease using a Nd:YAG free running pulsed laser requiring specific knowledge and skills drawn from the whole of dentistry. To you, our patients, this means: less pain, less bleeding, less swelling, less tissue removed, less down time, and less recovery time which is decidedly less costly to you and your employer.
The reasons we use Laser Periodontal TherapyTM are to: Remove only the diseased tissue without removing any of the healthy tissue, maintain the height of the tissue around teeth, minimize pain and discomfort to the patient, get a closure of the periodontal pocket wound, and allow healing to take place. Controlling periodontal disease makes it possible to save and restore otherwise hopelessly involved teeth. This means No cutting and No stitches!
