PerioLase LANAP: A Revolutionary Laser Treatment for Gum Disease
PerioLase LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a minimally invasive laser treatment that offers a less painful and more successful alternative to conventional gum surgery for treating periodontitis, a severe form of gum disease. This innovative technique utilizes the PerioLase laser to precisely remove diseased tissue and stimulate the regeneration of healthy bone and gum tissue, promoting the natural healing process.
Advantages of PerioLase LANAP:
Minimally invasive: Unlike traditional gum surgery, which involves scalpel incisions and sutures, PerioLase LANAP uses precise laser energy to target diseased tissue, minimizing trauma to healthy tissue. This results in less pain, swelling, and bleeding during and after the procedure.
Effective tissue regeneration: PerioLase LANAP stimulates the body’s natural healing response, promoting the regeneration of healthy bone and gum tissue. This leads to a more stable and long-lasting treatment outcome, reducing the risk of periodontal disease recurrence.
Reduced treatment time: PerioLase LANAP procedures are often completed in a single session, compared to traditional gum surgery which may require multiple visits. This reduces overall treatment time and patient discomfort.
Comfortable procedure: LANAP is often performed using local anesthesia, eliminating the need for general anesthesia or sedation. This makes the procedure more comfortable and convenient for patients.
Eligibility for PerioLase LANAP:
PerioLase LANAP is a suitable treatment option for patients with moderate to severe periodontitis. However, it is not appropriate for all patients. A consultation with one of our qualified dentist or periodontist is necessary to determine if PerioLase LANAP is the right treatment for your individual needs.
