Lanap Laser Treatment
At Corbin Dental, we are dedicated to offering our patients the most innovative, up-to-date treatment options, such as laser gum surgery. With the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), can treat gum disease without the use of a scalpel or sutures. Instead, a laser is used to selectively remove only the diseased portions of the tissue, while leaving the healthy portions unharmed. This means that patients who receive laser gum surgery will experience less pain and less bleeding than with traditional gum surgery.
Gum disease is a plague that affects millions of people in the United States every year. However, only a small percentage of this group actually seeks treatment. This is because gum disease treatment carries many negative associations such as pain and discomfort. LANAP® laser gum surgery offers patients a less painful and minimally invasive way to treat their illness. This is important, because untreated gum disease can often lead to more serious conditions such as diabetes or pancreatic cancer.
Much of the success reported with LANAP® laser gum surgery can be attributed to the PerioLase® MVP-7™. This is an innovative new laser technology that can distinguish diseased tissue from healthy tissue. With the PerioLase® MVP-7™, can remove only the infected tissue while leaving the rest unharmed. This is how laser gum surgery is able to reduce the amount of pain and bleeding during the procedure. In fact, the PerioLase® MVP-7™ is the only laser to be cleared for use by the FDA during LANAP®.
