Invasive gum surgery doesn’t have to be the only way. Although traditional gum disease treatments may be effective, there are now modern solutions that offer more minimally invasive procedures with faster recovery times. Using precise dental laser technology, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP®, is a laser gum surgery protocol that allows patients to more comfortably and quickly tackle their periodontal disease before it spreads. Dedicated to offering the latest solutions, our practice was also one of the first to implement it in the Newtown, CT area.
The LANAP® protocol is the only laser gum disease treatment that is FDA-approved and proven to promote gum tissue regeneration. Simply put, LANAP® is a minimally invasive way to regenerate gum tissue after gum disease.
LANAP allows you to rethink gum disease therapy. As the only laser gum disease treatment FDA-cleared to promote soft tissue and bone tissue regeneration, LANAP is the minimally invasive alternative to gum surgery patients have been looking for.
If you have red, swollen or bleeding gums, gum recession or persistent bad breath (halitosis) you may have gum disease. Whether you’ve been diagnosed yet or not, you should see a periodontist to be sure. Our periodontists, Dr. Richard Amato and Dr. Michael Kang, specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. Although proper at-home care can help, professional treatment may be necessary depending on the stage your condition is in. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to receding gums, tooth loss, and systemic health effects like heart disease, certain cancers and high blood pressure.
If you’ve received a gum disease diagnosis in Newtown, CT but are anxious to receive osseous surgery, there’s another alternative. LANAP offers highly effective results through a gentle procedure. In many cases, LANAP can completely replace the need to receive osseous surgery. Combining a specific wavelength of laser light, pulse vibrations and a skilled clinician’s touch, LANAP eradicates gum disease-causing bacteria without cutting the gums or requiring sutures.
Proven to reduce recovery time, treatment time and even encourage proper healing, LANAP is a highly effective and preferred gum surgery solution. Traditional osseous surgery cuts and pulls back gum tissue to gain access to infected tissue deep within periodontal pockets. Using a small dental laser, our team of periodontists are able to avoid removing gum tissue and prevent the use of sutures in order to access regions of hidden infected tissue. Selectively targeting disease-causing bacteria, LANAP offers the leading minimally invasive solution available today!
Gum disease is extremely difficult, but fortunately its treatment has come a long way over the years. LANAP® is the FDA-approved alternative to gum surgery that is proven to reduce recovery time and make the gum surgery process much more tolerable.
LANAP is the only laser periodontal treatment FDA-cleared for true tissue regeneration! Using the precise PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser, LANAP is able to target disease-causing bacteria deep inside periodontal pockets, sanitize the treatment site and promote healing and tissue regeneration all in one procedure. A revolutionary treatment for gum disease, LANAP offers unmatched benefits compared to other traditional methods and laser solutions.
