Gum disease has been linked to a variety of health complications including heart disease and low birth-weight babies. Until now the majority of the treatment options available were invasive and painful. LANAP is minimally invasive and does not require the cutting or stitching of the gums!
The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a minimally invasive type of gum surgery that uses lasers to remove bacteria and diseased tissue. As a leading provider of laser dentistry in Harrisonburg, VA, the Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute recommends LANAP® for the following reasons:
LANAP® is most often recommended to patients with moderate to severe gum disease. This is because it allows us to remove bacteria and infected tissue without causing harm to the surrounding bone, teeth, and healthy tissue. While traditional gum surgery uses a scalpel to remove the infection, LANAP® utilizes a new technology called the PerioLase® MVP-7™. This is a new type of dental laser that operates at a frequency which affects only the diseased areas and leaves the teeth, bone, and healthy tissue untouched. Not only does this minimize pain and discomfort, it also reduces the chances of further complications.LANAP® is more than just a minimally invasive gum surgery. It will actually help to restore the surrounding areas and reverse any damage caused by gum disease. This is done by using the Periolase® MVP-7™ to stimulate these areas and promote regrowth. By doing this, the SVII doctors can help improve your teeth’s support structures and reduce the chances that future tooth loss will occur.LANAP® has been proven effective through decades of scientific research from around the globe. It has even been granted marketing clearance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In fact, LANAP® is widely considered to be one of the most advanced forms of gum surgery available. In order to become a licensed practitioner, one must complete rigorous training and education courses. The doctors at the Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute are some of the few selected professionals to complete this process.If you have moderate to severe gum disease, you may be a candidate for LANAP®.
