What is LANAP LANAP Procedure LANAP vs. Traditional Gum Surgery LANAP in the News
Do you have bleeding gums? Bleeding gums are one of the first signs of periodontal disease, a chronic bacterial infection of the mouth. Millions of Americans suffer from periodontal or gum disease which also manifests in red, swollen gums. Without gum disease treatment, bleeding gums progress into loose teeth, receding gums, and bone loss.
New research has proven a reciprocal link between gum disease and other health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Many patients have neglected to have gum disease treatment, unaware that this chronic infection could so significantly impact their overall health, or perhaps they wished to avoid the perceived discomfort and lengthy healing times of traditional gum disease treatment. However, a new, innovative laser gum disease treatment is available to alleviate your bleeding gums and eradicate periodontal disease.
Laser gum surgery, or the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), is a gum disease treatment that allows the dentists at Fort Worth Dental to eliminate your gum disease with less pain and less downtime. LANAP® uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ and is the only FDA cleared laser protocol for gum disease treatment. Laser gum disease treatment offers numerous long -term advantages for patients and is performed using laser technology. There are no scalpels or sutures needed for this procedure.
