LANAP Laser Gum Therapy

When gum disease advances beyond a mild-to-moderate infection, it is known as periodontitis. This condition, if untreated, can lead to several serious oral health complications. Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) can eliminate associated symptoms and address the root cause of aggressive gum disease for patients in Missouri City and Richmond, Texas.

How LANAP Laser Gum Therapy Works

Typically, patients would expect to undergo a surgical incision procedure to treat infected gums. The bones beneath targeted areas are scraped to eradicate infection. Bone grafts are often needed to restore and strengthen treated or weakened structures. This process is often lengthy and painful, requiring suturing of gums to the teeth to complete restorations. Initial recovery can prevent patients from returning to normal activities such as work and sports. Follow-up care may impact how long it takes to get back to life as normal.

When you choose LANAP laser gum therapy, no sutures or incisions are involved in the procedure. A laser is used to remove bacteria and infections from the gums. This is a minimally invasive process that does not damage healthy tissue. Recovery time is significantly reduced and results in less pain.

LANAP Laser Gum Therapy Benefits

LANAP laser gum therapy may provide effective solutions if you have gum disease. Lower occurrences of gum bleeding, swelling and gum loss are some benefits. Rather than enduring the pain and recovery of bone grafts, regeneration is a natural result of the procedure. Many patients in Richmond and Missouri City, TX, can return to normal life within 24 hours of treatment.
