LANAP Laser Treatment
Almost 50% of all Americans currently have some form of periodontal disease. Most Americas don't know they have the disease and are unaware of the treatment options. Failure to seek periodontal treatment may lead to teeth and bone loss. As the disease progresses, many other serious health problems may be linked to periodontal disease such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and low birth weight babies.
I'm Afraid of The Dentist
Despite the health risks involved with periodontal disease many individuals have developed a phobia of dental procedures and do not seek the proper treatment. Traditional surgery by nature can be quite invasive causing pain and discomfort. Prior to the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), a periodontist would typically treat gum disease by cutting into the affected gum tissue, removing the bacteria and decay, and stitching the tissue back up. Laser gum surgery or LANAP® reduces pain, discomfort and has increased success.
Patients who undergo LANAP® have less bleeding, sensitivity, and discomfort.. In addition, dental professionals have observed greater predictability for bone regeneration and reattachment of the gum tissue with LANAP®. The LANAP® also provides a viable, long-term solution for managing gum disease. Almost 98% of laser gum surgery patients remain stable five years after the procedure.
