LANAP Laser Gum Disease Treatment near Denver, CO

LANAP

LANAP, which stands for laser-assisted new attachment procedure, is an FDA-cleared laser treatment that offers a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional surgery for periodontal disease. LANAP treatment is one of the most successful protocols in treating gum disease because it can target the source of the swelling and inflammation without damaging or removing any healthy gum tissue, allowing the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for cutting with a scalpel or sutures.

Uses for LANAP Protocol

The LANAP protocol is used to:

  • Treat gum disease by removing only the damaged tissue and avoiding the removal of any healthy tissue.
  • Maintain the height of the gum tissue surrounding the teeth, which will help to minimize pain and discomfort.
  • Ensure a full closure of the periodontal pocket and allow healing to take place.

Helping to control and treat periodontal disease makes it much more likely to restore and save teeth that may otherwise be hopeless.

LANAP Treatment Procedure

Below are the steps required when undergoing LANAP treatment:

  1. First, a perio-probe will indicate the pocket depth of the periodontal pockets
  2. Laser light will be used to remove diseased tissue and any remaining bacteria
  3. Special hand tools such as an ultrasonic scaler are used to remove tartar along the surface of the tooth’s roots
  4. The bone will be modified as needed
  5. The laser will finish cleaning the periodontal pockets and seal them off so that new germs are not allowed to enter in
  6. The bite trauma is adjusted, and healing is allowed to occur.
