How LANAP® Laser Gum Disease Treatment Works

LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a cutting-edge technology designed to stop and reverse advanced periodontitis and severe symptoms of gum disease. Chronic inflammation of the gums (periodontitis) can have severe repercussions on whole-body health and can lead to an increased risk of numerous diseases and medical conditions. Unfortunately, many patients do not realize they have periodontitis until it’s too late; they let their bleeding gums go untreated, and this results in the development of health conditions that affect the whole body – not just the mouth.

At Tri-Cities Periodontics & Implants in Kennewick, WA, our LANAP® trained and certified periodontist can halt your gum inflammation and stop periodontitis before it turns into a serious health problem. LANAP® is an FDA-approved gingivitis treatment that stops late-stage gum disease and offers a quicker, more effective, less painful alternative compared to traditional cut-and-sew treatments.

A Simple, Effective, Non-Invasive Approach

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may need a periodontitis treatment, in which case we urge you to speak with a periodontist as soon as possible. As we outline above, untreated gum disease can lead to a variety of systemic health complications, including conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. LANAP® laser gum treatment is a fast, effective, nearly pain-free approach to stopping periodontitis and restoring health to the soft tissue of the gums.

LANAP® is a cutting-edge, non-invasive approach to gum disease treatment that does not use foreign agents such as biologics or growth factors – which can pose an array of adverse side effects. Laser gum disease treatment also rarely involves the need for bone grafting procedures, and the periodontist is able to eliminate gum disease at the site of inflammation without removing healthy bone or soft tissue.

Healthy Gums Equal A Healthy Body

Healthy gums are crucial for establishing both oral and systemic wellness. In addition to providing structural support for the teeth and facial/jaw bones, the gums act as a barrier to protect against the invasion of foreign bacteria and viruses. When the health of the gums deteriorates, the body and mouth become much more prone to disease development. Gum disease also triggers an immune response, which leads to pain, swelling, and inflammation.

Poor gum health also involves the buildup of plaque between the teeth, which can turn into bacteria-releasing tartar if left untreated. Over time, plaque and tartar can form periodontal pockets of bacteria and inflammation, which cause the gums to eventually separate and pull away from the teeth. This can lead to tooth decay, tooth loss, and accelerated jawbone deterioration if steps are not taken to remove the tartar and periodontal pockets that result in chronic inflammation.
