Laser Periodontal Therapy

Taking care of your mouth is essential for maintaining its health. When you ignore your oral hygiene routine, even if you only occasionally skip out on brushing or flossing here and there, your risk for developing periodontal disease increases significantly. Without treatment, periodontal disease only continues to worsen, and can quickly lead to issues such as gum recession, tooth loss, and health complications. Martin Periodontics can help to treat periodontal disease with laser periodontal therapy with LANAP.

What is LANAP?

LANAP is a laser procedure that stands for laser-assisted new attachment procedure. Rather than a traditional scalpel to treat periodontal disease, we use a laser. The laser uses a concentrated beam of light to remove diseased and infected tissue. It can also disinfect periodontal pockets and seal tissues, aiding in the regeneration of new tissues.

Am I a Candidate for LANAP?

If you are suffering with periodontal disease, you may be a candidate for LANAP. Ideal candidates have moderate to severe periodontal disease, you may be well suited for this treatment. The best way to know for sure if LANAP is right for you is to schedule a consultation.

How Does LANAP Work?

LANAP is a less invasive procedure than traditional periodontal surgery with a scalpel. While less invasive, a local anesthetic is still administered, ensuring that you do not feel and discomfort. We then use a specialized probe to measure the exact depths of your periodontal pockets.
LANAP begins with using the laser to remove diseased, infected tissues. Next, the laser is used to clean the periodontal pockets. It also helps to break up tartar deposits on your teeth. A scaler is then used to remove all buildup from the surfaces of your teeth. Finally, the laser is then used to disinfect the pockets and seal the tissue, allowing your gums to begin healing from the inside out.

Recovery After LANAP

There is a recovery period following treatment with LANAP. During the first few days, you may feel some slight discomfort. Typically, over the counter pain relievers can help. Several follow up appointments will allow us to monitor your healing. We may adjust your bite several times as you heal, which will prevent your teeth from hitting one another and affecting the results of your treatment. We may also create a splint for you to help further stabilize your teeth. Over the next 6 to 18 months, your gums will continue to heal and your oral health will improve.

Benefits of LANAP

LANAP provides several benefits. These benefits include:
•  Treatment is less invasive than traditional periodontal surgery.
•  The laser is precise and causes less tissue trauma, lessening bleeding, swelling, and pain.
•  With the ability to target only diseased tissue, less tissue is removed. Your healthy tissue remains intact.
•  Healing time is reduced. The laser helps to stimulate tissue regeneration, speeding up your recovery process.
•  Faster healing means a lower risk for postsurgical complications.

If your mouth has been affected by periodontal disease, it is crucial that you seek treatment immediately. For more information about LANAP periodontal therapy, and to find out if it is right for you, call Martin Periodontics at (513) 445-4282 today.
