Treat Your Gum Disease without any Virtual Pain with LANAP Treatment at Glen Cove
One and Truly Dental at Glen Cove has always remained at the apex of advanced periodontal treatments, which is why we are offering LANAP laser periodontal surgery. This advanced therapy is used to treat gum recession and gum diseases. This powerful laser destroys the oral bacteria. It only affects the diseased part of the gums and the healthy tissue remains intact untouched. We avoid causing any discomfort during traditional periodontal care treatment.
What is LANAP?
Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is the first and only laser gum surgery approved by the FDA for the treatment of gum disease that is backed by laboratory and clinical research. This laser surgical protocol allows for the removal of diseased gum tissue and leaves the healthy tissue intact. LANAP provides an environment where your healing takes place itself.
How LANAP Laser Periodontal Surgery Works?
A dental laser is used during the LANAP for the treatment of gum diseases, such as bacteria, inflammation, and loss of soft and hard tissue. A tiny Millennium™ laser fiber is inserted between the dental gums and roots during the procedure. This fiber does not cause any discomfort as it is the size of three human hairs. The laser kills and eradicates the bacteria without harming the healthy tissue. Then the periodontist uses an ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque and tartar deposits from the dental roots. Such deposits are washed away with an antibacterial rinse.
Then, the specialist will again treat the area to ensure that no bacterium is left behind. Besides, the second laser treatment seals the gums to reattach to the teeth.
LANAP is a modern and advanced alternative to traditional gum surgery that doesn’t involve any sutures and has quick healing time, thus offering patients an improved experience.
What are the Benefits of the LANAP Procedure?
LANAP is quite beneficial over traditional periodontal treatment, because of the following:
- The procedure is faster than older therapies
- No need for sutures
- Quick recovery (patients can return immediately to work or routine after the surgery)
- No gum inflammation
- Minimal discomfort
- Protects your tooth and your smile
- Safeguard your health as gum diseases are linked to increased risk of stroke and heart attack
Moreover, LANAP is safe and effective for diabetic patients and those who are on an aspirin regimen. This laser surgery can also help in regrowing of the bone tissue which is lost in patients with periodontal disease.
Who are Good Candidates for the LANAP?
If you are struggling with moderate or advanced gum disease, you are likely to be a good candidate for this modern periodontal laser surgery. Gum diseases are common which are caused by the accumulation of oral bacteria in the gums. Eventually, bacteria can move deep into your gums tissue and form pockets around your teeth. This leads to receding and pulling away from tooth roots.
Here are the symptoms of gum diseases:
- Visible gum recession
- Tooth loss
- Red, inflamed gums
- Loose or separated teeth
