The LANAP Laser is the first FDA approved laser treatment for gum disease, effective for treating moderate to severe periodontal disease.
As it is a minimally invasive procedure, LANAP eliminates the need for blade or sutures. This procedure causes only minimal pain and very little recession of the gums.
Periodontal disease reflects several associated risks such as premature or low-birth-weight babies, heart disease, and pancreatic cancer. In spite of these risks, only a few individuals opt for periodontal disease treatment as it is invasive and painful. Monroe Periodontist Dr. Richard Amato offers LANAP Laser Gum Treatment, where gum treatment is carried out without scalpels or sutures.
In the traditional periodontal procedures, incision is made in the gums so as to clean and treat the area. Following the treatment, the patients experience moderate or severe pain with prolonged recovery period. In addition, the gum line is reduced, causing aesthetic problems and sensitivity to hot or cold.
The first FDA approved LANAP laser treatment for gum disease is an effective solution for periodontal disease. The minimally invasive LANAP procedure causes minimal pain and gum recession for the patient. The function of the laser is based on a wavelength that clearly differentiates the diseased tissue from the healthy one, thereby removing the periodontal disease. With this highly-selective laser treatment, Dr. Amato has received positive outcomes for innovative procedures such as LANAP laser dentistry, dental implants, Piezosurgery and implant supported dentures.
