Transforming Gum Health: The LANAP Protocol for Periodontal Treatment

Are you battling with persistent gum disease, despite your best efforts at oral hygiene? Gum disease, or periodontitis, is not just a common dental issue; it's a condition that can significantly impact your overall health and the stability of your teeth. The good news is, there's a groundbreaking solution that promises a new lease on life for your gums: the LANAP Protocol.

What is the LANAP Protocol?

LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is an innovative, minimally invasive treatment designed to combat periodontal disease without the need for traditional surgery. Utilizing the precision of laser technology, LANAP specifically targets and removes the diseased tissue and bacteria from the gums while preserving the healthy tissue. This approach not only treats the infection but also encourages the regeneration of the tissues around your teeth, helping to secure them firmly in place once more.

Benefits of the LANAP Protocol

Opting for LANAP comes with several key advantages:

  • Minimally Invasive: Unlike traditional periodontal surgery, LANAP is less invasive, reducing discomfort and the need for sutures.
  • Faster Healing: The precision and efficiency of laser treatment promote quicker recovery times, getting you back to your daily routine sooner.
  • Reduced Bleeding and Inflammation: The laser's targeted approach minimizes bleeding and inflammation, making the procedure and post-op recovery smoother.
  • Improved Gum Health: LANAP effectively eradicates harmful bacteria, halting the progression of gum disease and fostering a healthier oral environment.

Common Questions Answered

When considering a new treatment like LANAP, it's normal to have questions. Here are some common inquiries:

  • Does the procedure hurt? Most patients experience little to no pain during the LANAP procedure, thanks to its minimally invasive nature.
  • How long does the treatment take? The LANAP treatment typically requires one to two visits, with each session lasting about two hours.
  • What's the success rate? LANAP has a high success rate in treating periodontal disease, with many patients seeing significant improvements in their gum health.
