LANAP® Laser 
Gum Surgery

Renew The Health Of Your Gums With Gentle Laser Technology
Gum disease treatment does not have to be costly or uncomfortable. In fact, with the LANAP® protocol, a minimally invasive form of laser gum surgery, you can finally receive the treatment you want to control your periodontal disease. Find out more about LANAP® treatment by scheduling your appointment today.

The LANAP® Protocol Has Changed Periodontics

Gum disease isn’t widely talked about, but can have a big impact on your life. Patients suffering from gum disease often feel less confident and fear losing their teeth. Our office is certified in a unique laser gum disease treatment, the LANAP protocol.

The LANAP® protocol uses a special dental laser, the PerioLase® MVP-7. A tiny fiber about the width of three human hairs is inserted between the gum tissue and teeth, where it targets and destroys bacteria deep within the pockets of the gums without affecting healthy tissue. 

Because of the gentle nature of the procedure, patients typically see immediate results with less bleeding when brushing and less bad breath. Of course, your gums need time to recover and heal, but after LANAP treatment, you can drive your car, go back to work, or do anything else you like. 

Patient Benefits:

  • Faster Healing - LANAP® is minimally invasive and allows the body to recover and heal more quickly.
  • Less Discomfort - Patients report less discomfort during and after surgery.
  • Minimal Recovery Time - Most patients can immediately return to their daily routine. 
  • Little to No Gum Recession - Because the procedure doesn’t require cutting the gums, there is less risk of recession and your beautiful smile is maintained.
  • Reduction in Gum Inflammation and Bleeding - The PerioLase® MVP-7 targets inflammatory bacteria without injuring healthy tissue.
  • Saves Teeth - Patients can keep their natural teeth sometimes even when the teeth have been deemed ‘hopeless’ with traditional treatments. Keeping your natural teeth has been linked to a longer lifespan!
  • Safe for patients with Health Concerns - LANAP® protocol is safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking medications such as Plavix or aspirin. 

LANAP® Will Change The Way You Feel About Gum Surgery

The LANAP® laser gum surgery protocol has given us a faster, more reliable way to solve patient issues related to gum disease. Using a high-tech tool called the PerioLase® MVP-7™, a space-age variable-pulse handheld laser, we are able to deep clean the periodontal pockets that have formed between the teeth and gums. After LANAP® treatment, the site is not only sanitized, but is in a better position for soft tissue regeneration. Studies have shown that several months after LANAP® treatment, most patients see a significant change in the depth of their periodontal pockets.

The LANAP® protocol is the only laser gum disease treatment that is FDA-approved and proven to promote gum tissue regeneration.  Simply put, LANAP® is a minimally invasive way to regenerate gum tissue after gum disease.

If you have gum disease, it is essential that you visit a periodontist on a regular basis. Although you can do a lot at home to help keep your mouth clean and healthy, only a trained professional has the equipment and skills to stop the progression of gum disease. With regular treatments and a customized plan based on your dental health, you can avoid the systemic effects of gum disease such as cancer, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.


LANAP® May Reduce The Need For Osseous Surgery

Osseous surgery involves smoothing out the bone around your tooth roots that have been damaged due to gum disease related bacteria build-up. However, in some cases, LANAP® may enable you to avoid osseous surgery. The LANAP® protocol is not only safe, but it uses zero cutting and sutures.
