What is Laser Assisted New Attachment Therapy (LANAP)?

Laser Assisted New Attachment Therapy (LANAP™) is a cutting-edge alternative to traditional periodontal disease treatment, known for its minimally invasive approach. Unlike conventional methods that involve cutting, drilling, and stitching, LANAP™ eliminates the need for such procedures, minimizing pain, bleeding, and swelling. This advanced therapy enables patients to retain more of their natural gum tissue, experience quicker healing, and encourages the regrowth of healthy gum tissue.

Benefits of LANAP

  • Reduced Discomfort: Patients report less pain, bleeding, and swelling compared to traditional methods.
  • Diminished Sensitivity: LANAP™ leads to less sensitivity during and after treatment.
  • Preservation of Gum Tissue: The procedure results in less gum loss, preserving as much of the patient's existing healthy gum tissue as possible.
  • Minimal Downtime: LANAP™ ensures a shorter recovery period post-treatment. Lower Infection Risk: There is a reduced likelihood of post-operative infections.
  • Stimulates Gum Regeneration: LANAP™ actively promotes the regeneration of healthy gum tissue.

The LANAP Procedure

The LANAP procedure is the only laser periodontal disease treatment that is cleared by the FDA for the regeneration of healthy tissue and bone lost as a result of gum disease damage. The LANAP procedure targets and removes infected gum tissue and bacteria and reconnects gum tissue to the tooth's root. Post-procedure this encourages bone and healthy tissue to naturally regenerate.

Choosing LANAP over traditional periodontal surgery ensures a faster, more comfortable healing process, making it an innovative and patient-friendly option for gum disease treatment.
