Periodontal Disease Treatment
LANAP™ Periodontal Disease Treatment
The FDA approved LANAP, or Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is one of the most innovative developments in Periodontology. Dr. Nguyen and Cape Cod Perio lead the way on Cape Cod and the South Shore utilizing this safe and proven laser technology to gently remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gums while leaving the healthy tissue intact for reattachment purposes. This noninvasive, less painful approach allows the body to heal itself naturally and regenerate lost bone.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER THERAPY?
Because of its less invasive nature, there are a number of benefits that LANAP offers over traditional surgery. Less pain and faster recovery are among the top advantages of LANAP. Treatment time and follow up is about half of traditional surgery. Because the laser treatment causes instant clotting it actually seals the gum tissue which creates a barrier to any new bacteria that might get introduced to the gums in the future.
LANAP is the only procedure that actually helps the bone supporting your teeth to regenerate. This laser-based approach to treating gum disease makes it easier for you to return your gums to health and the process is far more comfortable than gum surgery.
