Laser Periodontics

For many years traditional periodontal therapy was a surgical procedure. Although this treatment modality is extremely effective and predictable, the first few days/weeks post treatment was uncomfortable for some patients.

Today, due to modern technology most treatment for periodontal disease can be achieved through the use of the dental laser. To date there is only one laser approved by the FDA for the treatment of periodontitis. The treatment procedure is known as LANAP (laser assisted new attachment procedure). Treatment is non-invasive, comfortable post-treatment, and virtually all patients return to their daily routine on modest medications, the next day.

This technology is ideal for patients with compromised medical histories as well as patients on anti-coagulant therapy, bisphosphonate therapy, cancer therapy, etc.

Finally, studies clearly show that the effectiveness of this specific laser technology (LANAP) is equivalent to traditional surgical periodontal therapy.
