LANAP Treatment vs. Traditional Surgery
For many years, patients diagnosed with periodontal disease lived in discomfort and pain, dreading the procedures required to treat the cause and results of gum disease. The major complaints about traditional periodontal surgery include pain, tooth sensitivity, gum recession, and length of the surgical procedures.
The pain and complications of traditional gum surgery is a thing of the past! Dr. Tanner and his team understand that patients may feel anxious when exploring the available periodontitis treatment options, but we are excited to offer a revolutionary laser gum disease treatment that helps put our patients at ease.
LANAP®, also known as Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is the only laser periodontal disease treatment approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration. With LANAP®, there is no cutting or stitches, and there is much less pain with laser treatment than with standard surgery, both during and after the procedure.
