Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), as the name suggests is a laser-assisted surgical process, which cleans out the infections below the gum line and in the bacteria-infected pocket.
In one 2007 study, LANAP had impressive results – it successfully reduced pocket depths and allowed regeneration of connective tissue to grow and fill in the areas damaged by the bacteria. Laser essentially vaporizes the bacteria causing the bone loss. Laser is known for its effects on stimulating the regeneration of collagen tissue and it worked here in the application on the teeth, too.
The LANAP is one of the advanced dentist’s successful strategies that make a big difference in reversing these gum diseases. Make sure you ask your dentist about LANAP if you have periodontal diseases.
Now that you know the different treatments that really get in the mouth and clean out the bacteria and the pockets, it’s time to learn what you’re going to do afterwards to prevent the same problem from happening again.
You might realize right now that some of these new treatments for gum disease were never offered to you in the past. You see that they are incredibly valuable and realize that it’s a comprehensive program you need, and you finally understand what your role in the process is. You’re ready to proceed right now and want to book an appointment.
