LANAP® Laser Gum Surgery in Clearwater, FL

LANAP® Laser Treatment

Symptoms of gum disease include red, swollen gums, and bleeding gums. In advanced stages of gum disease, you may experience receding gums and shifting or loosening teeth. A laser gum surgery, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), has become a popular gum disease treatment.

Dr. Wagner discusses the advantages of LANAP over traditional gum surgery

  • Patients experience less discomfort with this treatment because there is no cutting or suturing with laser gum surgery.
  • Patients report less inflammation and bleeding with laser gum surgery, as this gum disease treatment targets only the bacteria and diseased tissue.
  • This is the only gum disease treatment that is proven to regenerate bone.
  • LANAP® laser gum surgery is especially beneficial to those patients who have a fear of dentistry or scalpels.

Who is a Candidate for LANAP® Gum Disease Treatment?

Our LANAP®-certified clinician at Northwood Dental can help you assess whether LANAP® laser gum surgery is the right gum disease treatment for you.

  • Anyone who has been diagnosed with periodontal disease may be a candidate for laser gum surgery.
  • LANAP® laser gum surgery is a safe, effective gum disease treatment for patients who have medical conditions that would preclude or discourage them from having traditional surgery.
  • Patients who have had an alternative gum disease treatment in the past without success may benefit from laser gum surgery.

How does LANAP® Laser Gum Surgery Work?

LANAP® laser gum surgery is performed twice in two hour sessions. Northwood Dental administers local anesthetic for each session and most patients are able to return to work the next day.

  1. We will measure the pocket depth with a probe to assess loss before laser gum surgery.
  2. Pulsed laser light removes diseased tissue from the pocket, targeting only diseased tissue for gum disease treatment.
  3. Ultasonic scalers are used to clean calculus from underneath gum line as part of the gum disease treatment.
  4. The laser is used to stimulate the root and bone. This forms a clot, sealing the area around the teeth to promote healing after laser gum surgery.
