Treating gum disease with LANAP technology

Posted on 1/15/2024 by Weo Admin
LANAP laser toolLANAP technology uses lasers to treat gum diseases. LANAP means Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, it is a reasonably fast way to fix and cure advanced gum disease. It is a "non-invasive" method with an 87.9% success rate. Why use this method to treat gum diseases? Now, a staggering 85% of Americans have gum-related problems and surprisingly only 60% know about the underlying issues. Most of these patients are not comfortable with oral surgery, therefore, this method offers them an option.

How it works

This technology restores health for the gums by increasing the bone development process, reattaching gum tissue, and increasing the regeneration process in the patients. The procedure has very positive after-surgery results like reduction of tooth loss when compared to traditional methods. It is therefore considered safe to use and is approved by the FDA. It is the only laser periodontal treatment that is approved and scientifically proven to work.

Why go for LANAP surgery

This method of treatment reduces the bleeding instances since it is non-invasive. It also does not take much time to heal since there are minimal or no cuts needed for the success of the procedure. The recovery time takes about six to eight weeks to fully recover from the procedure. It is also dentally recommended for cases that are past the gingival stage. That is, for advanced stages like periodontitis and pocket reduction.

Prevention of gum disease

However, with the introduction of technologies such as LANAP for dental surgeries, oral health should not be assumed. Maintaining oral health includes keeping regular dental hygiene by brushing, using a fluoride toothpaste for brushing, staying away from tobacco products, and regular visits to your dentist.
