Basic Steps of the LANAP® Protocol

For gum disease treatment, it is crucial to clear away the bacterial infection and plaque that can destroy gum tissue and bone.

Pockets are formed as the gums separate from the teeth and bacteria occupy the newly created space and must be cleared away be a dentist for gum disease. If left untreated, symptoms then progress to loosened teeth and bone loss. There are some patients who experience no symptoms at all.
