Dr. Sharona Dayan is a certified provider for LANAP™ laser treatment for gum disease and is frequently invited to lecture on this technology. Gum disease is also called periodontal disease and is chronic inflammation of the gums and bone around the teeth that is the Number 1 reason for tooth loss in adults.
Dr. Sharona Dayan’s doctoral thesis at Harvard University showed that genetic factors that cause increased chronic inflammation result in more periodontal disease. Her research was the basis for the first genetic test for gum disease using a simple cheeck swab. You can read her publication here.
If you have been told you have gum disease, that you need to have teeth removed because of gum disease or you are showing symptoms-bleeding, swollen gums or bad breath-we have good news. Our office uses LANAP™, a revolutionary FDA-approved procedure with state of the art technology that offers a more comfortable and effective treatment for gum disease and bone loss. This technology creates a healthy, infection-free environment where the body can regenerate on its own without the use of bone grafts. Dr. Dayan has been able to save thousands of teeth that were scheduled to be removed by other dentists. LANAP™ is hope for the hopeless teeth.
LANAP laser treatment for gum disease is FDA-approved and takes the fear out of gum disease treatment. The procedure is minimally invasive and is the only periodontal procedure that is FDA-approved for regenerating the lost tissue.
And for you, the patient, LANAP™ treatment means no cutting or sewing is involved so the healing is fast with minimal discomfort and down-time. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be done during the lunch hour. Most patients don’t even need pain medications, not even over- the- counter pain relievers. To hear what Dr. Sharona’s patient had to say about his experience with LANAP™ watch this video on You Tube.
You can read about how LANAP™ results in an immediate reduction of the germs that cause gum disease by clicking here. The LANAP procedure is so advanced in technology that only the diseased tissue is selectively removed, leaving behind the healthy tissue. LANAP™ does not create ugly gum recession like the traditional techniques. LANAP laser treatment for gum disease uses light and heat energy to create a an environment where the body can naturally heal itself.
LANAP™ is the safest and most effective procedure for treating gum disease in patients who have other medical illnesses like diabetes and heart disease. If you are on important heart medications or blood thinners like aspirin or Coumadin there is no need to discontinue these important medications because the LANAP™ laser procedure forms a stable fibrin clot. Plus, your general health should improve after LANAP! Scientific research has conclusively shown that the bacteria and chronic inflammation from gum disease can impact diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and arthritis. Chronic inflammation is now widely accepted as being the root cause of many age-related illnesses like cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease.
Treating gum disease (periodontal disease) can reduce the onset and severity of these other illnesses.

LANAP is so effective at killing the bacteria that cause gum disease that other life threatening illnesses can be mitigated.
