Gum disease can greatly impact both your oral health and overall well-being, making the selection of an effective, efficient, and comfortable treatment option essential to your long-term health and happiness. The Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) has quickly become a popular choice among patients and dental professionals alike due to its patient-centric, minimally invasive nature, in addition to its superior treatment outcomes. In the following sections, we will detail the unique aspects of LANAP therapy and how our dental professionals at Boulder Periodontics can tailor your treatment plan to suit your individual needs best. By choosing our practice for your LANAP treatment, you are taking an important step towards ensuring a lifetime of vibrant, healthy smiles.

The Benefits of LANAP Treatment

The Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) provides numerous advantages over traditional gum surgery, making it an appealing option for those suffering from gum disease:

  1. Minimally Invasive: LANAP utilizes a specialized dental laser that targets and removes diseased gum tissue while preserving healthy gums, making the procedure less invasive and more comfortable than traditional surgery.
  2. Faster Recovery: The laser used in LANAP eliminates the need for cutting and stitching, resulting in a reduced recovery time and less post-operative discomfort.
  3. Bone Regeneration: LANAP not only removes diseased tissue but also stimulates the growth of new bone, helping to support and stabilize your teeth.
  4. Minimal Gum Recession: Unlike traditional gum surgery that can cause gum recession, LANAP minimizes this risk, preserving the appearance of your smile and decreasing tooth sensitivity.

The LANAP Treatment Process

The LANAP procedure is completed in several stages, ensuring a safe and effective periodontal treatment experience:

  1. Initial Consultation and Examination: Our dental professionals at Boulder Periodontics will conduct a comprehensive oral examination, as well as discuss your medical history and specific needs to determine if LANAP is the appropriate treatment for you.
  2. Treatment Planning: Based on the examination, our team will develop a personalized LANAP treatment plan tailored to your unique oral health situation.
  3. LANAP Procedure: The LANAP treatment involves using a specialized dental laser to treat gum disease gently and effectively. During the procedure, the laser selectively and precisely removes infected gum tissue and kills bacteria while leaving healthy tissue unharmed.
  4. Post-Operative Care and Follow-Up: After your LANAP treatment, our team will provide detailed post-operative care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure optimal results.
