THE BENEFITS

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP™) is an amazing breakthrough in periodontal treatment.  In appropriately selected cases, these benefits include:

LANAP™ Laser Periodontal Therapy on ABC News
  • There's much less discomfort with LANAP™ LASER PERIODONTAL THERAPY than with standard surgical procedures — during and after the procedure. There is no cutting with scalpals or suturing.
  • LANAP™ LASER PERIODONTAL THERAPY takes LESS TIME than traditional surgery. All it takes is two 2-hour visits to the office and two follow up visits. Traditional surgery requires four sessions of about one hour each, with subsequent visits for suture removal and additional check-ups.
  • It gives better, longer-lasting results. In fact, 95% of treated patients remain stable after five years.
  • Many patients find that they have less than a 24 HOUR RECOVERY period, so you won't lose time from work. Following traditional surgical procedures, recovery can take between to 2-4 weeks during which patients can experience pain and swelling and may require a liquid diet.
  • Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP™) is safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking medications such as Coumadin or Cyclosporin.
