What Are The Benefits of LANAP?

At Corbin Dental we are committed to offering our patients the best that modern dentistry has to offer. We routinely incorporate advanced dental technology like the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser for our LANAP procedures to improve the patient experience and improve patient success rates.

What is LANAP?

LANAP® stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, which is an FDA  approved protocol that offers an alternative to traditional gum disease treatment, cosmetic gum treatment, and other issues addressing the health, function, and appearance of the gums. Dentists alike are adopting LANAP because it primarily eliminates the needs for traditional scalpels and sutures, which ultimately improves the patient experience.

Benefits of LANAP

LANAP offers a wide range of benefits for patients who are seeking an alternative to traditional gum treatment and other issues affecting the health, beauty, and function of the gum line.

Minimizes Discomfort

Traditionally, removing disease gum tissues required scalpels and sutures. With LANAP, your dentist can remove diseased gum tissue with high-quality dental lasers. Since dental lasers seal blood vessels as they perform, it eliminates the need for sutures and scalpels. Therefore, patients experience minimal discomfort during and after their treatment.

Shorter Healing Time

As mentioned, dental lasers seal gum tissue as they perform, which eliminates the need for sutures. As a result, dental lasers trigger the body’s natural healing response, and the gum tissue can properly heal without the use of stitches.

Helps Encourage Bone Growth

LANAP is an effective and safe way to encourage jaw bone growth in patients with periodontal disease. In addition, the LANAP protocol is the only treatment that is proven to promote periodontal regeneration, encourage new bone growth, and improve gingival tissue regeneration.

Is LANAP Right For Me?

Dr. Bruce and Richard Corbin can perform a full dental evaluation to determine the exact stage of gum disease and the extent of the damage. In many cases, most patients are ideal candidates for LANAP; however, a comprehensive examination of the gums will determine if LANAP is right for you. During your evaluation, our team will discuss the results of your examination, explore your cosmetic goals, and build a personalized treatment plan that is right for you.
