5 Compelling Advantages of LANAP Laser Treatment, Gates, New York

Receiving a gum disease diagnosis can be overwhelming; however, there are many periodontal treatments available for controlling the condition. One increasingly sought-after solution is LANAP laser treatment, an alternative to traditional surgery used to eradicate infections or decay. Discover what makes this therapy such a beneficial means of treating periodontitis below. 

5 Benefits of LANAP Laser Treatment

1. Shorter, Easier Recovery

periodonticsWith LANAP laser therapy, dental professionals use laser light to remove bacteria and diseased tissue, followed by an ultrasonic scaler to remove root surface tartar. Because the gum tissue is never cut with a scalpel and no stitches are involved, recovery times are shorter and bleeding is minimal.

2. Preservation of Tissue

The laser used during LANAP treatment is no thicker than a human hair, and therefore allows the most conservative approach for clearing away infection. The laser also employs technology which can differentiate between healthy and infected tissue to preserve the greatest amount of tissue possible.  

3. Reduction of Root Exposure

Traditional periodontal procedures can leave the roots of teeth exposed, resulting in extreme sensitivity. Since LANAP is less invasive, it doesn’t expose the roots, which helps to minimize undesirable side effects such as sensitive teeth.

4. Lower Risk of Infection

Cut and sew gum surgeries can introduce risks of re-infection, since using a scalpel opens the gum line, potentially leaving it exposed to additional bacteria. Not only does the LANAP protocol minimize infection risks, but it may even continue to improve gum health over time.  

5. Cost-Effective Solution

LANAP based gum therapy means: less pain, less bleeding, less swelling, less tissue removed, less down time, and less recovery time which is decidedly less costly to you and your employer.
