When it comes to treating periodontal disease, Dental Partners of Boston is proud to offer LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure). LANAP is an innovative, minimally invasive treatment that effectively targets and treats gum disease, helping patients regain optimal oral health. In this blog post, we will explore LANAP and discuss who is an ideal candidate for this groundbreaking periodontal treatment.
What Is LANAP?
LANAP is an FDA-approved laser-based procedure designed to treat gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Unlike traditional gum surgery, which involves cutting and suturing the gums, LANAP utilizes a specialized dental laser to gently and precisely remove diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. The laser also stimulates the regeneration of supporting bone and tissues, promoting a faster healing process.
Who Is A Good Candidate for LANAP?
Patients with Periodontal Disease
LANAP is specifically designed to treat moderate to severe periodontal disease. If you are experiencing symptoms such as swollen or bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, gum recession, or loose teeth, you may be a good candidate for LANAP. Our skilled periodontists will conduct a thorough examination and determine if LANAP is the most suitable treatment option for you.
Patients Seeking Minimally Invasive Treatment
LANAP is an excellent option for patients who prefer a less invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery. The laser technology used in LANAP offers precise and targeted treatment, resulting in minimal discomfort, reduced bleeding, and faster recovery times compared to conventional surgery.
Patients Looking for Effective Gum Disease Treatment
LANAP has proven to be highly effective in treating gum disease. The laser targets and eliminates bacteria and infected tissue, promoting gum reattachment and stimulating the regeneration of healthy tissue. LANAP also helps reduce pocket depth, which is crucial for maintaining gum health and preventing further progression of periodontal disease.
Patients Seeking Long-Term Results
LANAP not only treats existing gum disease but also supports long-term oral health. By addressing the underlying cause of periodontal disease and promoting tissue regeneration, LANAP helps to stabilize the gums, reduce the risk of tooth loss, and improve overall oral health.
