LANAP (Laser-assisted new attachment procedure)
Laser-assisted new attachment procedure is a type of laser treatment (approved by the US Food and Drug Administration) that improves the effectiveness of treating periodontitis.
Utilizing the laser to improve the health of the gums makes the procedure much less complicated, easier for the patients to withstand, and allows patients to benefit from improved effects.
A certified dentist or periodontist must use a variable pulsed neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG at 1064nm wavelength) dental laser to heal the periodontal pocket.
The laser is so precise that patients benefit from improved healing, less pain, reduced risk of dental decay and reduced pain post therapy.
