LANAP® Laser Treatment

What is LANAP  LANAP vs. Traditional Gum Surgery  Laser Dentistry  FAQs  LANAP in the News

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a laser gum surgery protocol that treats periodontal disease with less pain and less discomfort. This innovative laser gum disease treatment in Louisville is offered at the periodontal practice of Doctors Nelson and Lowy.

Periodontal disease is a chronic infection that, without treatment, can progress from simple gum inflammation to a more devastating loss of teeth and bone. Moderate to severe periodontal disease will not resolve on its own. The only way to stop its advancement is through gum disease treatment. Louisville periodontists Dr. Nelson and Lowy can schedule LANAP® for you in two convenient sessions of two hours each.

The Procedure: LANAP® Gum Disease Treatment by Louisville Periodontists

Checking for depth and loss of attachment, our Louisville periodontists will begin by using a probe to assess your periodontal pockets. The laser is then used to target and eliminate the bacteria and diseased tissue in your mouth. The laser used in this gum disease treatment in Louisville is able to distinguish between healthy tissue and diseased tissue, thereby leaving healthy tissue intact.

Our Louisville periodontists will remove the calculus from your tooth’s root surface with ultra-sonic scalers and utilize the laser to excite the root, bone, and tissue. The stimulation changes the consistency of the blood, causing it to form a natural barrier around the teeth.

Our Louisville periodontists will gently press the gum tissue to your teeth and check for any additional impact from this gum disease treatment in Louisville.
