What is LANAP?

Laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP) is a high-tech, minimally-invasive, and FDA-approved laser periodontal treatment. It is the first (and only) laser treatment for gum disease that’s backed by both clinical and laboratory research.

This modern technique treats gum disease, helps regrow healthy gum tissue, and prevents gum recession — all while leaving healthy tissue intact.

We may recommend LANAP as a treatment for a variety of issues, including:

  • Gum disease
  • Failing implants
  • Peri-implantitis (through the LAPIP protocol)

Frequently asked questions about LANAP

How do I know if I have gum disease?
In many instances, gum disease may not exhibit any symptoms in its early stages. As the condition progresses, common indicators of advanced gum disease may include:

  • Gums that are red, swollen, or tender to touch
  • Gums that bleed during brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Teeth that have become loose
Can gum disease affect health throughout my body?
Yes! Recent research indicates that bacteria may enter the bloodstream through the gums and increase the risk of health problems like:

  • Heart attacks and cardiovascular diseases
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Diabetes and diabetic complications
  • Stomach, liver, and pancreatic cancers
Am I a good candidate for LANAP?

LANAP is a highly recommended solution for most individuals who have gum disease. For some patients, such as those with diabetes or weakened immune systems, LANAP therapy, with its minimally invasive nature, is a preferable choice compared to traditional gum disease surgery due to the lowered likelihood of infection and related issues.

To determine if LANAP is the ideal option for you, it’s best to consult with one of our expert dentists!

What can I expect after LANAP?

Most of our patients don’t even need strong pain medication — aspirin or ibuprofen is more than enough. You’ll see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your gums and notice continued improvements as your gum tissue becomes stronger as it heals.

How long does LANAP surgery take?

The length of a LANAP surgery depends on the extent of gum disease, but the procedure typically takes about 2-4 hours to complete.

Are there any risks associated with LANAP surgery?

As with any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with LANAP surgery. These may include bleeding, infection, and pain or discomfort. However, these risks are typically minor and can be easily managed with proper postoperative care.

How effective is LANAP surgery?

LANAP surgery is highly effective in treating gum disease and promoting the regrowth of healthy tissue. In many cases, the procedure can significantly improve the health of your gums and prevent further progression of gum disease.
