LANAP Laser Treatment
If you have severe gum disease, come to Holladay Dental Excellence to get special LANAP® treatment from Dr. Val Ludlow.
LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a patented laser gum treatment for periodontal disease. When you receive LANAP therapy, our dentist and team use the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to remove diseased tissue and bacteria from your mouth. We then remove calculus and plaque from the teeth and their roots to eliminate the source of harmful bacteria, after which the laser finishes disinfecting and cleaning the periodontal pocket. This is done without surgically cutting the gums so that stitching is not needed. It helps to create a biologic seal to help keep bacteria and viruses from reentering the infected areas.
LANAP gum treatment has many benefits, including:
Easy to perform — there is no cutting or suturing involved in this procedure. Less discomfort — LANAP treatment is more comfortable than traditional gum procedures, both during and after your treatment. Faster treatment time — your LANAP treatment requires fewer visits and less chair time. Typically, two treatment visits are needed. Quicker recovery — LANAP is minimally invasive, leading to a much swifter recovery than traditional gum surgery. Better long-term results — LANAP does not involve any major loss of gum tissue or removal of bone. Safe and hygienic — LANAP therapy is very hygienic and is generally safe for individuals with preexisting medical conditions.
