Periodontal disease is a serious health condition that shouldn’t be ignored, especially now that a safe, comfortable, and effective alternative to surgery exists! Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is an innovative laser alternative to gum surgery for patients battling periodontal disease. If you value the preservation of your oral health and want to prevent infection from spreading even deeper into your gum tissue and bone, LANAP can save your smile.
A Quick Introduction to Periodontal Disease
It’s no secret that periodontal disease is bad news, but are you familiar with its exact causes, symptoms, and consequences? Periodontal disease is an infection of the structures that support and surround your teeth. Warning signs of periodontal disease include gums that bleed easily, gums that have pulled away from the teeth, loose teeth, change in bite, and persistent bad breath. If this condition isn’t treated, it leads to the rapid loss of tissue and bone throughout the mouth, which causes widespread tooth loss.
LANAP Can Help
LANAP is FDA-cleared to offer a less painful and more successful alternative to the conventional surgery used to treat periodontal disease. It achieves laser assisted regeneration (LAR) by sterilizing infected gum tissues, destroying bacteria, and helping healthy gums reattach to the teeth in a short period of time. In fact, LANAP is the only scientifically, research-proven methodology to achieve true periodontal regeneration. Since it can target inflammation without harming healthy gum tissue, LANAP is able to slow or even stop the oral damage that periodontal disease causes.
Recover Without Scalpels or Sutures
Invasive surgery has long been viewed as a necessity to treat serious conditions, but thanks to laser technology, surgery can now be avoided. When you use LANAP for your periodontal disease treatment, you benefit from significantly less pain, bleeding, sensitivity, gum loss, swelling, downtime, and post-op infections when compared to surgery. All of those benefits while you know that your gum tissues are actually regenerating and healing!
Dental Implant Solutionz is proud to offer LANAP for all patients battling periodontal disease. When you make your appointment, you can expect your LANAP treatment to be split into two visits.
