Manasquan’s Choice for Cutting-edge Gum Disease Treatment

Introducing LANaP

What is LANAP?

LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a revolutionary, minimally invasive laser treatment designed to combat periodontal (gum) disease without the need for traditional surgery. Utilizing a specialized dental laser, LANAP precisely targets and removes infected gum tissue while preserving healthy areas, effectively killing harmful bacteria and encouraging the regeneration of the gum tissue around the teeth.

Why Choose LANAP for Gum Disease Treatment?

Gum disease, if left untreated, can lead to serious health issues, including tooth loss and potential links to heart disease and diabetes. Traditional treatments often involve surgery, which can be daunting for many patients. LANAP offers a groundbreaking alternative, using laser technology to target and remove only the diseased tissue without cutting or stitching. This precision not only preserves healthy gum tissue but also stimulates regeneration, promoting natural healing.

The LANAP Advantage

  • Minimally Invasive: With no cutting or stitching, LANAP reduces patient discomfort and anxiety associated with traditional gum surgery.
  • Faster Healing: The laser technique promotes quicker recovery, allowing patients to resume their daily activities sooner.
  • Less Pain and Discomfort: Patients typically experience minimal pain during and after the procedure, making the recovery process much more comfortable.
  • Reduced Gum Recession: Traditional surgery often results in gum recession. LANAP minimizes this risk, preserving your natural smile.
  • Improved Oral Health: By effectively treating gum disease, LANAP improves your overall oral health, contributing to better systemic health.

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.

  1. Initial Consultation: Your journey begins with a comprehensive evaluation to assess the severity of your gum disease and determine if LANAP is the right treatment for you.
  2. Preparation: On the day of your procedure, we'll ensure you're comfortable and understand each step of the process. Local anesthesia is administered to the treatment area for a pain-free experience.
  3. Laser Treatment: The LANAP protocol involves a specialized laser that precisely targets and removes diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact. This step also effectively kills bacteria and encourages the reattachment of gums to the teeth.
  4. Removal of Calculus: The laser prepares the tooth's surface for the removal of calculus (tartar) below the gum line, which is gently removed without harming the surrounding tissue.
  5. Clot Formation: The laser is used again to stimulate the stem cells in your gums, creating a stable fibrin clot and sealing the wound, which eliminates the need for stitches.
  6. Tissue Compression: The treated gums are compressed against the teeth, and no sutures are needed. This step helps in the healing process.
  7. Bite Adjustment: Your bite may be adjusted to ensure that there is no excessive force on any of your teeth, promoting optimal healing.
