15 Oct Four Benefits the LANAP Procedure Gives Your Gums
From sensitive teeth to sensitive patients, sensitivity and the dentist’s office have gone hand in hand. Luckily, with evolved dental technology, there are minimally invasive procedures such as LANAP laser gum surgery to combat serious cases of gum disease such as periodontitis. Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure or more common known as LANAP procedure, is the only laser-based surgical procedure with FDA clearance for True Regeneration for its capability to regenerate tissues lost to gum disease.
The principle is simple, laser technology to eradicate harmful oral bacteria while allowing gum tissue to heal and reattach to one’s roots. This popular procedure provides benefits to patients that previous procedures could not boast such as little discomfort, quicker recovery, oral health improvements, and reducing the risk of tooth loss.
Say goodbye to the scalpel and painful incisions! Since LANAP uses laser technology, the laser offers more precision and less trauma on the surrounding tissues. As a result there will be less bleeding, less pain, and fewer complications than conventional surgery. Being a minimally invasive procedure gives LANAP an advantage over other types of dental surgeries.
Faster Recovery Times
Previous procedures would require additional time off after surgery for recuperation, but LANAP procedures has allowed most patients return to work the following day. This is correlated to LANAP being more comfortable and less invasive than traditional periodontal treatment options. Given the use of local anesthesia, most patients are capable to drive after surgery instead of having to designate a driver for the ride home.
Oral Health Improvements
Gum disease affects more than 80% of American Adults according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Gum disease leaves one’s oral health exposed and vulnerable to bacteria. LANAP surgery removes bacteria filled tissue from your gums. As a result, the patient reduces their risk for other infections related to their oral health.
Reducing the Risk of Tooth Loss
Treating gum disease is critical to the longevity of one’s teeth and tooth preservation. LANAP will control gum disease and reversal of tissue damage giving patients a healthy mouth and bone regeneration. Studies on tooth preservation post LANAP are promising. By combining healthy teeth cleaning habits post surgery will increase your chances of smiling for a long time.
