Restore your smile after gum disease with LANAP laser gum surgery
Have you been diagnosed with gum disease or periodontitis? Have you experienced significant damage to the gum tissue? If you have had a severe infection in the past or recently and need to remove or contour damaged or existing gum tissue, surgical treatments might not be needed. Instead, the team at Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions in Manhattan Beach, California, offers a solution known as laser-assisted periodontal therapy, or LANAP laser gum surgery.
What is LANAP?
The acronym LANAP stands for laser-assisted new attachment procedure and is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional periodontal surgery. The LANAP laser targets and removes diseased gum tissue while leaving healthy tissue untouched.
How does it work?
The LANAP laser works by targeting specific bacteria found in infected gum tissue without causing harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. It also stimulates the growth of new bone and tissue to help reattach the gums to the teeth and restore oral health.
What are the benefits?
Some of the benefits of LANAP laser gum therapy include minimal bleeding during treatment, reduced post-procedure discomfort, quicker healing time, and no need for scalpels or sutures. It can also be used in conjunction with traditional surgery to treat more severe cases of periodontal (gum) disease.
Am I a candidate for laser-assisted periodontal therapy?
If you are suffering from gum disease and are looking for a minimally invasive solution, ask the team at Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions about LANAP laser gum therapy. They can evaluate you to determine if you are a proper candidate and can benefit from this or other oral surgery procedures available in their office. In most cases, patients may be candidates for LANAP laser therapy after they have been diagnosed and treated for periodontitis. This is a treatment that can help in restoring the smile afterward to improve appearance and health.
