The LANAP® Procedure in Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY


(Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure)



Basic Steps of the LANAP® Protocol

As periodontal disease advances, the risk of serious damage becomes greater and greater. Periodontal disease is quite literally a living infection within your mouth. The longer you wait for treatment, the higher the chance that this infection can enter your blood stream and spread to other parts of the body. In fact, periodontal disease has been linked to a number of illnesses such as heart disease, pancreatic cancer, and diabetes. This is why it is important to immediately seek gum disease treatment for Brooklyn patients.

What can I expect from having laser gum disease treatment in Brooklyn?

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a relatively short and painless procedure. After these six short steps, your periodontal disease will be under control:

1. Measuring the pocket depths – When undergoing laser gum disease treatment in Brooklyn, you will first need to have your periodontal pockets measured. This will tell us how much loss of attachment has occurred so we can adjust treatment accordingly.

2. Removing bacteria – During this stage the laser will make its first pass over the area to remove any bacteria and diseased tissue. Because the laser does not affect bone or healthy tissue, we can treat periodontal disease without causing unnecessary harm to these areas.

3. Removing deposits of calculus – Because the laser itself cannot remove calculus deposits, we use an ultrasonic scaler for this part.

4. Promoting regrowth – After your periodontal disease is under control, the laser will make a second pass to stimulate bone and tissue growth. This is how LANAP® can reverse the effects of periodontal disease.

5. Recompressing tissue – Then we will recompress the remaining tissue against the tooth without using stitches.

6. Checking for trauma – The final stage of laser gum disease treatment in Brooklyn is to examine your bite and check for signs of trauma.

After these six short steps, your periodontal disease will be under control. Because there is no need for pain medication, you can get on with your daily routine immediately. This makes laser gum disease treatment in Brooklyn one of the most convenient treatment options for periodontal disease available.
