What is Advanced Laser Therapy?
Advanced laser therapy, normally referred to as LANAP, allows for us to remove unhealthy and infected gum tissue without the need for surgery. The procedure is less painful and less invasive, allowing for quicker recovery time. No incisions or sutures are required and you’ll find that the results are long-lasting and promote better oral health. Laser therapy can be done in our office at your earliest convenience.
What to expect with Advanced Laser Therapy?
After having a consultation and exam in our office, you’ll come back for the actual procedure. The therapy involves using a high-powered laser to remove unhealthy gum tissue from around and inside of the gingival pockets. Once this gum tissue has been removed, the healthy tissue is able to heal naturally against the teeth and bones. This helps to put a stop to the progression of the disease. In some cases, uneven bone will be smoothed out in the area to prevent further bacterial infection.
