Our LANAP-Laser Gum Treatment is cut-and-stitch-free!
The laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP) is a high-tech, minimally invasive laser periodontal treatment that has been approved by the FDA. It’s the first (and only) laser treatment for gum disease that has been proven in both clinical and laboratory studies.
This cutting-edge approach addresses gum disease, aids in the regeneration of healthy gum tissue, and prevents gum recession while preserving healthy tissue.
How is LANAP at Dr. Maya Dental Clinic better for gum disease, failing implants and peri-implantitis
The only reversible stage since it only involves the tartar buildup. This stage is painless, which is why it might go undetected. Good oral care and regular dental checkups can treat and reverse gingivitis.
Here the infection would have spread to the bones and is no longer reversible with simple oral hygiene. The probing depth (the space below the gum tissue alongside your tooth) is between 3 to 5 mm.
The probing depth increases to 5 to 7 mm which allows for bacteria to attack further; your bloodstream and immune system. If left untreated, this can progress to tooth loss, gum sensitivity, and bleeding.
This dangerous stage requires periodontal surgery, as the spread of bacteria will evolve and you will be more at a higher risk of bone loss. If left untreated, this will cause gaps between the teeth, patients needing dentures and other serious problems.
LANAP is a single-visit technique that treats the entire mouth.
Ultrasonic devices will remove any tartar from the roots of your teeth after slightly numbing your mouth. We’ll utilize the laser to seal the treated region as a last step, allowing your gums and bone to heal. Recovery time is usually less than 24 hours. Furthermore, there is almost no chance of infection. You’ll notice a difference in your gums almost immediately!
