The LANAP® Protocol

Gum Disease Is a Major Threat to Oral Health

When harmful oral bacteria isn’t sufficiently controlled through diligent brushing and flossing, the gum tissue can become inflamed and infected. This is gingivitis, or the early stage of gum disease. If it progresses, it can become periodontitis, at which point the gum tissue becomes seriously compromised, as does the supporting bone, and there’s a major risk of tooth loss. Advanced cases may require surgical intervention.

How Does a LANAP Machine Help Treat Gum Disease?

The LANAP protocol offers a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional surgery. It is the only laser gum disease treatment that has been cleared by the FDA, and it has been scientifically proven to promote true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth, and gum tissue reattachment. Compared to traditional gum surgery, the LANAP protocol has several advantages. Patients report that it is less painful, involves less post-op sensitivity, leads to less gum loss, and requires very little downtime to recover after treatment.
