LANAP® Keeps Your Mouth Healthy
recommend laser gum surgery, not only because it is more convenient for our
patients but also because it promotes better bone health. Stimulating the bone
with the laser encourages the regrowth of bone lost to periodontal disease.
This allows our doctors to save teeth that have become loose, avoiding the need
for extraction and subsequent tooth restoration procedures. Treatment with
LANAP® improves the health of your entire smile.
How Does Laser Gum Surgery Work?
LANAP® is performed without harming your healthy tissue. Our doctors can simply slip the fine
tip of the laser in between your teeth and gums, allowing its special wavelength
to vaporize the bacteria and diseased tissue. Your gums will be healthier, immediately
after laser gum surgery.
