What is LANAP Laser Gum Therapy?

What is LANAP?

LANAP® is the first FDA-cleared laser protocol for the treatment of gum disease. It is a procedure in which the PerioLase® MVP-7TM laser is used to destroy the harmful bacteria which causes gum disease. While the laser is effective against the bacteria, it does not damage the healthy tissue.

Benefits of LANAP

While there are other safe and effective treatments for gum disease, LANAP® offers the following benefits:

  • Treats gum disease and saves teeth
  • Same day recovery
  • Less discomfort than traditional periodontal surgery
  • Less possibility of recession than traditional periodontal surgery
  • LANAP® is proven to regrow the bone surrounding your teeth
  • LANAP® is safe regardless of whether you have other diseases or are taking medications

Less Pain. Less Discomfort. The Laser

Alternative to Traditional Gum Surgery.

Gum Disease and Your Health

Did you know that gingivitis and periodontitis is caused by harmful bacteria? Gum disease is often associated with tooth loss, heart disease, diabetes, underweight babies, and even some cancers. To avoid these consequences, you must seek treatment for gingivitis before gum disease progresses into the more advanced stages.
