The LANAP Laser Treatment
Over 100 million Americans today have moderate to severe periodontal disease with only approximately 3% of this population seeking treatment. For many, the refusal to seek treatment is based on a fear of traditional gum surgery which can often be invasive and painful. The LANAP Laser is the gentle gum surgery alternative. Instead of using a scalpel or sutures as in osseous surgery, LANAP uses laser technology to gently remove the harmful bacteria that cause gum disease. The procedure is so gentle that many patients are able to return to work the same day!
75% of tooth loss in Americans can be attributed to moderate to severe periodontal disease. For many with one or more missing teeth, dentures and dental bridges were the only restoration option available. However, dental implants are now considered the standard of care for those with missing teeth. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone where they fuse naturally withe bone, forming a strong and permanent bond. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth!
