Are you living in pain or embarrassment because you have gum disease? You may not be looking forward to this Thanksgiving because of the condition of your smile. Don’t let your bleeding gums and loose teeth keep you from enjoying this holiday season! Treat your gum disease with minimally-invasive LANAP®.
What Is LANAP?
LANAP stands for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure and is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional osseous surgery to treat gum disease. Unlike conventional treatment, LANAP uses the unique PerioLase® dental laser to gently eradicate bacteria from the periodontal pockets and surface of the teeth. This laser can also vaporize diseased tissues without harming healthy gums, help with forming healthy blood clots, and stimulate the regeneration of new tissues.
How LANAP Improves Your Smile
If you’re suffering from gum disease, you are most likely experiencing many problems daily. Tender, swollen, gums that bleed easily whenever you brush and floss. Gums that are also pulling away from your teeth. Persistent bad breath or a lingering bad taste in your mouth. Maybe even teeth that are starting to feel loose. If not treated, gum disease can lead to severe gum, bone, and tooth damage, tooth loss, and complications with systemic health.
LANAP can eliminate all these problems by treating your gum disease at the source: the bacteria that is infecting your gum tissues. Often, in just one appointment, your LANAP dentist can clear the pockets around your teeth from bacteria and tartar accumulation and painlessly remove any damaged tissues—all without requiring a scalpel or incisions. Then, after formulating a healthy blood clot, the tissues are encouraged to form a tight seal back around the teeth to reduce periodontal pocket depth. With a fast and comfortable recovery, LANAP makes it easy to treat your gum disease just in time for the holidays.
