Laser Dentistry for a Healthier Smile
As a periodontist, Dr. Gottesman is always seeking to improve his treatment methods to provide our patients with the best, most effective results. Our Manhattan dental practice is proud to offer a revolutionary treatment for periodontal disease⎼ LANAP® laser treatment.
Explore our guide to learn about the many benefits of this innovative dental laser technology.
What is LANAP®?
Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, better known as LANAP®, is a minimally invasive and highly successful treatment for periodontal disease. LANAP® treatment uses a specialized, FDA-cleared dental laser known as the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser.
The procedure is performed to effectively target infected gum tissue and stimulate healthy tissue regeneration. LANAP® laser treatment offers a less painful and more accurate alternative to conventional treatment methods and surgeries for gum disease.
How LANAP® Treatment Works
Before your treatment begins, Dr. Gottesman will numb the infected area with a local anesthetic to ensure you do not feel any pain or discomfort. He will use the PerioLase MVP-7 laser to target the infected tissue without harming or removing your surrounding gum tissue. The laser is operated on a wavelength that protects healthy tissue and eliminates any need for a scalpel or sutures.
After the infected tissue is removed, Dr. Gottesman will use the laser again to form a blood clot. This will re-attach the gums to the tooth’s surface, stimulating healthy gum regeneration and a faster healing process. LANAP® treatment causes minimal discomfort, reduces inflammation and bleeding in the area, and decreases the risk of post-op infection.
Benefits of Laser Assisted Regeneration
LANAP® laser treatment offers our patients a number of advantages that conventional surgeries cannot match. Some of which include:
- Non-invasive treatment alternative
- No need for scalpels or stitching
- Minimal discomfort and swelling
- Short treatment time
- Faster healing and recovery period
- Stimulates gum regeneration
- Effective, long-lasting results
