LANAP® Laser Dentistry

High-tech treatment for the health of your gums.

What Is LANAP®?

Defined as: Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure.

Periodontics has always been at the forefront of dental advancements. This is evident in the development of dental lasers, which have been designed to make your experience more comfortable and your treatment more precise. LANAP® lasers not only continue this rich tradition but surpass them. This form of laser dentistry manages gum disease and also is the breakthrough for true regeneration.

LANAP® protocol uses the specific wavelength PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser to eliminate negative bacteria deep within your gum pockets. It does this while leaving your healthy gum tissue intact. The lasers break down the disease and help your gums to regenerate while repairing them to full strength.

Generally, this method of treatment is less invasive than traditional surgery due to there being no cutting or need for suturing. Therefore, our patients experience less discomfort during and after treatment.

How It Works
In basic terms, the LANAP® laser is used to remove bacteria below the gum line. This special tool vaporizes the disease and forms gel-clots to promote fast healing. The procedure is comfortable and very effective for the majority of patients.

Less Discomfort

Many patients report minimal pain during and also post-surgery. This allows for you to enjoy your amazing results and return to your daily lifestyle.

Dr. Poston helped me get over a lifelong fear of dentists and particularly dental surgery. He and his assistant were very kind, explaining what was going to happen and assured me I would be fine. The manner in which they spoke was very kind and patient and I just felt comfortable for the first time in a dental chair.
