LANAP Gum Disease Therapy

LANAP Gum Disease Therapy

Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) at Family Dental on Louetta is an FDA-approved method of treatment for gum disease. This procedure, performed with a special laser to treat the effected gums, stimulates existing stem cells to help regenerate healthy gums and bone growth.

If you are one of the millions of people throughout the United States who suffers from gum disease, LANAP treatment may present a number of benefits for you. In addition to treating gum disease, you may also see a decrease of inflammation in your mouth, a reduction in bleeding gums, an increase in at-home cleaning ease and reduction in the likelihood of tooth loss.

LANAP is the only FDA-approved procedure proven to generate new attachment. In fact, 98% of all treated patients remain stable after three years. This is a great improvement over the retreatment rate of the "resection & suture," method which has been reported as high as 95% re-treatment rate after five years.

Many patients have not only seen an improvement in their gum disease, but also a regeneration of bone to help secure their teeth in place long term. This bone regeneration was unheard of before LANAP treatment became available.

Laser treatment is safe for most people with moderate to severe periodontal disease. LANAP does not interfere with prescription medication or negatively impact present health conditions. In fact, the laser used in periodontal treatment allows us to control and minimize any bleeding. The best way to discover whether you are a good candidate for laser gum treatment is to schedule a consultation with our team, then we can evaluate your medical and dental history.
