LANAP® Laser Gum Treatment
Gum disease isn’t widely talked about but can have a big impact on your life. Patients suffering from gum disease often feel less confident and fear to lose their teeth. Our office is certified in a unique laser gum disease treatment, the LANAP protocol.
Short for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Protocol, LANAP is an advanced treatment for gum disease. With LANAP, we can get your gums back to full health without the need for surgery. Thanks to LANAP’s laser technology, we now complete gum disease treatment, gum recontouring, and more with no cutting and no sutures. The ultra-thin laser sends pulses to the damaged tissue, removing it while leaving behind more of the healthy gum tissue around the area. Average recovery time is quick, too – less than 24 hours for most patients. If you’ve been diagnosed with advanced gum disease and think surgery is your only option, talk with our Omaha dental care team about LANAP!
