LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) utilizes safe and proven laser technology to gently remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from gums. with this new procedure, only the diseased tissue is removed and the height of the tissue around the tooth is maintained. LANAP controls periodontal disease and makes it possible to save and restore healthy teeth that may otherwise have to be extracted.
This removal of bacteria allows the body to heal naturally so the gum pockets improve and the teeth become more stable. With LANAP, there is less pain and since the gum tissue is not cut with a scalpel, there are no stitches, minimal bleeding, and a quicker much easier recovery.
Dr. Stuart Beauchamp can evaluate your dental needs to determine if the Laser Periodontal Therapy
, or LANAP, would be appropriate for your individual dental condition, or if conventional surgical treatment would be best for you. It is our desire to offer you, the patient, the clinical skill and judgment to help you make the right decision.
Good oral hygiene
at home and regular hygiene office visits are a must. “I go in for my cleanings every six months. My teeth feel so clean all the time now and I have Ormond Beach Periodontics and Implant Dentistry to thank for that.”
