In the treatment of chronic inflammatory gum diseases such as periodontitis or gingivitis, Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure is the newest medical advancement. At HDE Periodontal, we are dedicated to helping those with periodontal disease get the relief they need with minimal side effects. With LANAP, we can now provide our patients with a minimally invasive gum disease treatment option.
What Is LANAP?
LANAP is the only FDA approved and patented treatment for chronic inflammatory periodontal disease. It involves no cutting or sewing of the gums and can be a stimulus to regenerate lost oral structures like root cementum, periodontal ligament fibers, and bone.
With minimal post-operation pain, little swelling, and little to no post-operation recession, LANAP has many advantages over conventional periodontal surgical procedures. The final outcome removes diseased tissue within the pocket, diseased pocket lining, and root surface contaminants.
Who Benefits from LANAP?
If you have a gum disease such as severe periodontitis or gingivitis, you may qualify for LANAP therapy. The procedure is much less stressful than typical surgeries and has the potential to regenerate bone losses. LANAP can heal your disease at its current level of severity and may also provide you with stability at that level. The following patients are especially well-suited to undergo LANAP therapy:
- Patients fearful of gum surgery requiring gum cutting
- Patients with deep pocketing in the front teeth
- Relapsing periodontal patients
- Patients with advanced periodontal breakdowns
- Patients taking a variety of medication, especially blood thinners
- Elderly patients
