LANAP® Laser Treatment
The modern approach to gum disease
Gum disease has been linked to a variety of health complications including heart disease and low birth-weight babies. Until now the majority of the treatment options available were invasive and painful. LANAP® is minimally invasive and does not require the cutting or stitching of the gums!
LANAP® Laser Treatment
People seeking gum disease treatment can have treatment with a gentle, highly effective laser gum surgery that treats periodontal disease with minimal pain and stress compared with traditional scalpel surgery. This is good news because gum disease is a serious infection that can destroy gum tissue and lead to tooth and bone loss.
Dr. James Matia & Dr. Matthew Lemke use the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) to treat gum disease. LANAP® is an FDA cleared, medically researched laser gum surgery strongly supported by histological studies. It is less invasive, more comfortable, and even has the added benefit of helping to protect a patient’s natural teeth.
Laser gum surgery means no scalpel, no cutting, and no stitches.
LANAP® is a kinder treatment for periodontal disease that utilizes gentle pulses of light to effectively root out and kill the damaging bacteria hidden between the teeth and gums. Scalpel surgery can harm healthy gum tissue, as it is necessary to access diseased tissue by incising through healthy tissue. LANAP® focuses only on the diseased tissue. Healthy tissue remains unharmed for a minimally painful treatment without the need for strong anesthetics.
Laser gum surgery is precise:
Dr. Matia uses the FDA cleared Periolase® MVP-7™ to perform laser gum surgery. Periodontal research shows this laser is the best precision dental laser on the market to regenerate bone growth and accurately target and remove bacteria without harming healthy gum tissue.
Recovery time is fast:
Laser gum surgery allows patients to get back to living in no time at all. Since there is no cutting and little to no post-operative inflammation, patients who choose LANAP® experience a much faster healing period, and most even skip pain medication.
Minimal to no gum recession:
Gum recession is often an unavoidable result of traditional surgery because the scalpel cuts away at the gum line. Laser gum surgery never harms healthy tissue, which means that there is little to no gum recession.
Supports and strengthens natural teeth:
Laser gum surgery even protects and provides added support to existing teeth. LANAP® is scientifically proven to generate new bone growth in the jaw. A strong, healthy jaw is necessary to preventing tooth loss.
