Innovative and minimally invasive, laser-assisted new attachment technique (LANAP) treats gum disease by using lasers to kill germs and stimulate the growth of new gum tissue. Knowing what to expect before, during, and after LANAP is crucial if you’re considering it. To help you get ready for your LANAP procedure with the help of world-renowned LANAP specialist Dr. Joseph Nemeth, we’ve put together this in-depth blog post.
1. Make An Appointment To See Dr. Joseph Nemeth
Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Joseph Nemeth is the first step in getting ready for LANAP. Your oral health will be assessed, and he will go through potential treatments with you and answer any questions you may have during this appointment. Dr. Nemeth is one of the foremost authorities on LANAP treatment due to his extensive background and training in the area.
2. Dress In Loose, Comfortable Clothing
It’s crucial to dress comfortably because you’ll be spending a long time sitting on a dental chair. Don’t wear garments that are too snug, as this could limit your range of motion.
3. Set Up A Mode Of Travel
As you will be sedated during the LANAP treatment, you will need to have someone else take you home. You should take public transit or arrange for a ride home.
4. Observe All Post-Operative Guidelines
Dr. Nemeth will provide you comprehensive aftercare instructions after the surgery. Some examples of these are waiting a particular period of time before brushing or flossing the treated area, avoiding certain foods, and taking medicine as directed. If you want your rehabilitation to go well, be sure to follow these steps to the letter.
In conclusion, getting ready for LANAP involves consulting with Dr. Nemeth, getting a dental cleaning, not drinking or using drugs, stopping some medications, eating a light meal before the procedure, dressing comfortably, making transportation arrangements, and following post-operative instructions. Follow these instructions for a safe, comfortable and stress free procedure! Call us today to set up your consultation and see if LANAP is right for you.
