What is LANAP®?

If you recently have been told that you have gum disease and need periodontal surgery, LANAP® or ‘Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure’ is a breakthrough and revolutionary new way of treating periodontal disease.

 

LANAP® treatments offer a truly cosmetic solution to gum disease, ensuring the maximum preservation of healthy tissues around the teeth compared to any other procedures requiring traditional gum access.

 

Gum disease, bone and gum degeneration can now be treated by a highly advanced, effective, cost efficient and virtually painless method using LANAP® technology and the PerioLase MVP-7™ Nd:YAG laser.

LANAP® is the no cut, no stitch, no blood and no pain alternative to traditional gum surgery.

The LANAP® Process

  1. Laser treatment is usually completed in 1-2 treatments
  2. The laser selectively targets and removes bacteria and diseased tissue from the pocket by the absorption of laser energy.
  3. Ultrasonic scalers, as small as the laser, are then inserted into the pocket. Sound waves will break up the hardened tartar and other debris from the surface of the tooth.
  4. The laser is then inserted once more to remove any remaining diseased tissue at the bottom of the pocket as well as sterilise& seal the tissues to ensure healthy gum attachment
  5. The recovery is virtually pain-free and bloodless.

If you recently have been told that you have gum disease and need periodontal surgery, LANAP is the alternative.
