Laser (LANAP) for Saving Natural Teeth

Laser (LANAP) for Saving Natural Teeth

Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP™)

Dr. Dayan believes in offering the most up-to-date and minimally invasive procedures available today to help her patients save their natural teeth. LANAP™ is a tiny fiber optic laser (the thickness of three human hairs) that gently passes through the gums to treat gum disease.  No scalpels, stitches, surgery, or swelling. 

As much as 75% of the U.S. population has some form of periodontal disease that can lead to tooth loss.  However, the anxiety of invasive surgical procedures may cause individuals to avoid treatment. LANAP™ is a minimally invasive therapy for the treatment of periodontal disease that works to reduce disease and possibly regenerate previously diseased gums and root surfaces.  

LANAP™ is a minimally invasive therapy for the treatment of periodontal disease. LANAP™ is the only FDA approved laser treatment  for regenerating infected gum tissue and bone structure without the use of bone graft materials

A tiny fiber optic laser selectively removes disease without causing damage to connective tissue. LANAP™ can help with:

  • the reduction of infection and periodontal disease
  •  accelerated healing
  • preserving the natural gum line due to its regenerative nature
  • preserving teeth
  • minimizing infection risk

Improved Patient Experience

With LANAP™, patients can treat their gum disease quickly and easily without much lost time from work.  Patients with gum disease often have tooth loss, bleeding and/or swollen gums, and bad breath.  LANAP™ can improve your oral health and quality of life without undergoing a significant surgery.  For patients on blood thinners or health concerns who may not be a candidate for traditional gum surgery, LANAP™ is an effective alternative treatment.
