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.
