What Is LANAP® Laser Gum Disease Treatment?
Gum disease affects millions and is linked to all kinds of additional health problems, including the following problems:
- Heart Disease.
- Low Birth Weight in Infants.
Despite these and other risks, many patients avoid gum disease treatment because they want to avoid unpleasant dental treatments. Traditionally, a scalpel is used to cut the gum line so that it can be peeled back to expose the diseased tissue for removal. Following this, the diseased areas of the gum are removed.
This procedure can lead to significant loss of healthy gum tissues or infected gum tissues. Traditional gum disease treatment can also cause significant gum recession, requiring corrective surgeries afterward.
The Difference of LANAP®
The LANAP® laser protocol with Dr. Penhaskashi makes receiving gum disease treatment less stressful and more efficient than ever before. Fully cleared by the FDA for safety and effectiveness, LANAP® treatment stops bacterial infections with improved accuracy and fewer side effects.
State-of-the-Art Technology for Maximum Results
Dr. Penhaskashi uses a state of the art dental laser called the PerioLase® MVP-7™ to eliminate bacteria and infection, and restore gums to a healthier state. This all occurs with minimal bleeding and swelling as well as no gum recession. Reattaching the healthy gum tissues to the root surfaces is done without sutures.
The entire healing process is faster, more tolerable, and can be done without prescription pain medication. LANAP® laser treatment is backed by significant scientific studies to reduce the depth of periodontal pockets and help stop tooth loss. Laser stimulates bone growth so teeth that may have been at risk for extraction have a better chance of survival.
