Laser Gum Disease Treatment in Warner Robins, Georgia
Minimally Invasive Laser Therapy with LANAP®
We are the first dental office in our area to offer the minimally invasive laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP) protocol. This is a FDA-approved, safe, effective and comfortable way to remedy most cases of moderate to severe gum disease without the need for traditional gum surgery. The procedure uses a high-tech dental laser instead of a scalpel to gently remove diseased gum tissue. The laser selectively targets diseased tissue and leaves healthy tissues unaffected. This means there is no cutting, no sewing and, compared to traditional gum surgery, greatly reduced discomfort both during and after the procedure.
Benefits of LANAP
Due to its minimally invasive nature, healing time is much quicker with LANAP than with conventional periodontal surgery. Instead of weeks, there’s usually a less than 24-hour recovery period, and most people feel comfortable enough to eat when they get home after the procedure.
The laser also stimulates your body’s natural regenerative potential. This assists in the repair of bone and gum tissue that may have been lost as a result of the disease.
