Laser Treatment

Periodontal disease affects millions, often leading to severe dental problems and discomfort. Traditional treatments can be invasive, causing anxiety and prolonged recovery times. Enter LANAP® (Laser Assisted Regeneration), a groundbreaking FDA-approved laser treatment that offers a less invasive alternative, promoting effective healing and regeneration of gum tissue with minimal discomfort.

What is LANAP Laser Treatment?

LANAP, short for Laser Assisted Regeneration, revolutionizes the treatment of periodontal disease through the use of the advanced PerioLase MVP-7 laser technology. This method provides a less invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery.

The PerioLase MVP-7, a sophisticated Nd:YAG laser, is designed to target and eliminate the sources of gum inflammation without harming the surrounding healthy tissues. By doing so, it offers significant advantages over conventional surgical methods, including reduced pain and faster recovery times.

The Science Behind LANAP

The science underlying LANAP centers on the unique properties of the Nd:YAG laser, which is integral to the PerioLase MVP-7 system. This laser operates at a specific wavelength that is optimally absorbed by the pigmented tissues in the gums, targeting only the diseased areas that need treatment. The precision of this technology ensures that healthy gum tissue remains untouched, promoting better healing outcomes.

Furthermore, LANAP stimulates the natural regeneration of bone and gum tissues. The laser energy helps to form a stable fibrin clot that serves as a foundation for the regrowth of connective tissues and bone. This regenerative capability is a significant step forward, offering patients outcomes that include new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment, vastly improving the structural integrity of the mouth post-treatment.

Key Benefits of LANAP Treatment

LANAP stands out for several compelling benefits:

  • Non-Invasive Approach: Often described with the phrase “No cut, no sew, no fear,” LANAP eliminates the need for incisions and sutures, which significantly reduces patient discomfort and anxiety associated with traditional gum surgery.
  • Reduced Pain and Bleeding: The precision of the laser allows for targeted treatment of diseased areas, minimizing pain and bleeding during and after the procedure.
  • Faster Healing: Patients typically report quicker recovery times due to the minimally invasive nature of the treatment.
  • Lower Risk of Infections: The procedure’s ability to effectively seal the gums reduces the potential for post-operative infections, promoting a healthier recovery.

The LANAP Treatment Process

The process of undergoing LANAP is structured to ensure patient comfort and effective outcomes:
  • Initial Consultation and Examination: Each LANAP procedure begins with a thorough examination to assess the severity of the periodontal disease and to customize the treatment plan.
  • The LANAP Procedure: During the session, the dentist uses the PerioLase MVP-7 laser to precisely remove infected tissue and bacteria without damaging healthy gum tissue.
  • Pre-Treatment Preparation: Patients are advised on how to prepare for the procedure, including maintaining oral hygiene and possible dietary adjustments.
  • Post-Treatment Care: After the treatment, specific guidelines are provided for care at home to ensure successful healing. This includes recommended oral hygiene practices and scheduling follow-up visits to monitor recovery.
This structured approach to the LANAP treatment helps maximize patient comfort and the effectiveness of the procedure, ensuring better health outcomes and a smoother recovery process.

Who Should Consider LANAP?

LANAP offers a valuable treatment option for a range of patients facing gum health issues. Those who are ideal candidates typically include individuals suffering from moderate to severe periodontal disease. The treatment is especially beneficial for patients who are apprehensive about traditional surgery due to its invasive nature.

Additionally, LANAP is suitable for those who have specific health concerns that make traditional surgery risky, such as patients with diabetes or those taking medications that compromise the immune system.

The effectiveness of LANAP in treating various gum diseases is well-documented. It effectively addresses conditions like gingivitis and periodontitis by removing infected tissue and promoting regeneration of the gums and bone.

This approach not only helps in stabilizing the condition but also in preventing further deterioration or recurrence of the disease. Patients often notice an improvement in their overall gum health, a reduction in gum bleeding, and a decrease in the depth of periodontal pockets.
