Barnegat ’s Choice for Cutting-edge Gum Disease Treatment

Introducing LANaP

What is LANAP?

LANAP is an innovative laser treatment designed to combat periodontal disease without the need for cutting or sutures. Utilizing a specialized dental laser, LANAP precisely targets and removes infected gum tissue, while preserving healthy tissue, stimulating regeneration, and promoting the reattachment of gums to the teeth. This state-of-the-art procedure offers a significant advancement in the treatment of gum disease, providing effective results with minimal discomfort and downtime.

How Does LANAP Work?

LANAP works by using a specific wavelength of laser light to selectively remove diseased tissue and bacteria from beneath the gum line. The laser energy also stimulates the surrounding area, encouraging the growth of new, healthy tissue and aiding in the natural healing process. This targeted approach allows for the preservation of healthy gums, reducing the risk of gum recession and promoting a faster, more comfortable recovery.

The LANAP Advantage

Choosing LANAP for your gum disease treatment offers numerous advantages:

  • Minimally Invasive: With no cutting or stitches required, LANAP reduces the risk of infection and discomfort associated with traditional gum surgery.
  • Quick Recovery: Patients typically experience minimal downtime, making it easier to fit treatment into your busy schedule.
  • Less Pain and Discomfort: LANAP patients often report less pain during and after the procedure compared to traditional methods.
  • Preservation of Healthy Gums: The precision of LANAP allows for the selective removal of diseased tissue, helping to maintain more of your natural gum line.
  • Improved Oral Health: By effectively treating gum disease, LANAP improves your overall gum health, contributing to better oral hygiene and reducing the risk of further complications.

What to Expect During LANAP Treatment

Our commitment to patient education ensures you know exactly what to expect during your LANAP treatment, demystifying the process and setting your mind at ease.

Initial Consultation

Our journey begins with a thorough evaluation of your gum health to determine if LANAP is the right treatment for you.

Preparation

On the day of your procedure, we'll ensure you're comfortable and fully understand what to expect. Local anesthesia is applied to guarantee a pain-free experience.

Laser Treatment

The LANAP protocol involves the careful application of laser energy to remove diseased tissue and eliminate bacteria, all while leaving healthy tissue intact.

Tissue Regeneration

The laser then helps to form a stable fibrin clot, sealing the treated area and encouraging the regeneration of gum tissue and the reattachment of the gum line to the teeth.

Recovery

LANAP promotes a quicker recovery than traditional surgery, with most patients able to return to their normal activities shortly after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my insurance cover LANAP?

Coverage for LANAP varies depending on your dental insurance plan. Some insurers may cover the procedure as part of periodontal disease treatment. It's advisable to check with your insurance provider and discuss payment options with your dental office.

What is the recovery time for LANAP?

Recovery from LANAP is generally faster than traditional gum surgery. Most patients can return to their normal activities within 24-48 hours. Specific aftercare instructions will be provided to ensure optimal healing and gum health.

What can I expect during the LANAP procedure?

The LANAP procedure typically involves the following steps:

  • Measurement of Pockets: Your dentist will measure the depth of the gum pockets around your teeth.
  • Laser Treatment: The LANAP laser is used to remove infected tissue and kill bacteria without damaging healthy tissue.
  • Removal of Calculus: Ultrasonic scalers are then used to remove calculus deposits from beneath the gum line.
  • Clot Formation: The laser is applied again to stimulate clotting, sealing the treated area and promoting healing.
  • Tissue Compression: The gums are gently compressed against the teeth, and no sutures are needed.
  • Bite Adjustment: Your dentist may adjust your bite to optimize healing and prevent undue stress on certain areas.

Who is a good candidate for LANAP?

LANAP is suitable for most patients suffering from periodontal disease, from mild to severe cases. It's particularly beneficial for those looking for a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery. A consultation with a dental professional can determine if LANAP is the right treatment for your specific condition.

Is LANAP painful?

Most patients report minimal discomfort during the LANAP procedure, thanks to the minimally invasive nature of the laser treatment. Local anesthesia is used to ensure a comfortable experience, and post-treatment pain is typically much less than with traditional gum surgery.

What are the benefits of LANAP over traditional gum surgery?

  • Minimally Invasive: Unlike traditional surgery, LANAP does not require incisions or sutures, leading to less discomfort and swelling.
  • Faster Healing: The precision of the laser promotes quicker recovery times, allowing patients to resume their daily activities sooner.
  • Reduced Gum Recession: Traditional gum surgery often results in gum recession. LANAP minimizes this risk, preserving more of your natural gum line.
  • Less Pain: Patients typically experience less pain during and after LANAP compared to conventional surgery.
  • Improved Gum Health: LANAP effectively removes bacteria and infected tissue, helping to halt the progression of periodontal disease and improve overall gum health.

How does LANAP work?

LANAP uses a specialized dental laser that targets and removes infected gum tissue while preserving healthy tissue. The procedure also stimulates bone and tissue regeneration around the teeth, improving gum health and attachment. This selective process reduces trauma and promotes faster healing.

What is LANAP?

LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is an advanced treatment option for periodontal disease that uses laser technology to remove infected tissue and bacteria without the need for cutting or sutures. This procedure promotes regeneration of gum tissue, offering an effective alternative to traditional surgery with less pain and a quicker recovery period.
