The LANAP® Process for Gum Disease Treatment Performed by Dr. Stephen C. Hale, a Dentist for Gum Disease
When seeing Dr. Hale, a dentist for gum disease treatment using LANAP®, the process is relatively simple. The procedure is carried out with a local anesthetic. The dentist for gum disease inserts a small laser into the pockets between the gums and teeth. This laser emits a unique pulsed light that kills bacteria and diseased tissue. The healthy tissue remains intact without any cutting or sutures required for successful gum disease treatment. The dentist for gum disease then uses ultrasonic scalers to remove calculus while the laser is utilized to stimulate the tissue, root, and bone in an effort to encourage regeneration. A clot is formed to seal the area around the tooth root and gum tissue is pressed against the root of the tooth by the dentist for gum disease.
LANAP® is performed by a dentist for gum disease and requires no special medications or dietary restrictions and has no contraindications. The procedure does not conflict with any medications or pre-existing conditions.
The LANAP® protocol uses PerioLase® MVP-7™ and is FDA cleared for gum disease treatment. On your next visit to the dentist for gum disease, ask about LANAP®. Even if you were not a good candidate for traditional surgery, talk to a dentist for gum treatment to find out if this may be the right gum disease treatment for you.
