Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure – LANAP™ is one of the most revolutionary developments in Periodontology. LANAP™ is a noninvasive laser therapy for the treatment of periodontal disease. Laser therapy is a virtually painless alternative to many of the more traditional surgical procedures associated with periodontal and implant medicine. Using this less painful approach to helping patients achieve improved oral health and a more aesthetic smile.
As with other forms of periodontal therapy, a main goal of laser therapy is to stimulate regeneration of connective tissue and bone between the gums and teeth. LANAP™ is also an excellent approach for patients who want to improve the aesthetics of their gum line with treatments such as cosmetic crown lengthening and tissue re-contouring procedures. For our patients who are candidates for laser therapy, other welcome benefits include less-painful treatment without cutting or stitches, less risk of infection, shorter appointment times, and an easy and fast recovery.
