Did you know that half of Americans age 30 and older have some form of gum disease? We want to help lower that number, and we have the dental technology to do it. The latest treatment we have to offer to help you save your teeth is LAPT and LANAP—Laser-Assisted Periodontal treatment and Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure that can help regenerate your gums and save your teeth.
Tell Me More About LAPT and LANAP
LAPT and LANAP are names for a periodontal laser therapy that uses our dental laser to remove infection surrounding the tooth root gently. By doing this, the area can be more thoroughly disinfected so that healing and regeneration can occur without harmful bacteria and their toxic byproducts.
Laser-Assisted Periodontal Therapy is much more effective than traditional scaling and root planing because the bacteria are completely obliterated and more effectively cleaned out.
Benefits of LANAP at Hillsboro Dental Excellence
Our dentist and dental team heartily support efficient and effective dental care at our dentist office to give you a healthy smile and healthy gums. If you have periodontitis, you may want to consider dental laser therapy. A few of the benefits of LANAP include:
- Reduced bleeding and swelling after the procedure.
- Dental lasers that are precise and pinpoint accurate.
- Easier recovery that requires less time.
- The dental laser can completely remove bacteria, helping you regenerate your gums and bone around your teeth.
You may want to consider LAPT or LANAP gum disease treatment because it’s a more comfortable and effective option. Our dental team can show you our dental laser and how it works.
Why LAPT or LANAP Instead of Traditional Surgery or Deep Cleaning?
Your oral health is important to us, and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your treatment. Patients with dental anxiety or patients on certain medications may have a better experience with LAPT and LANAP laser therapy.
LANAP is also more effective with deep periodontal pockets, continual pocket breakdown, and specific medical issues. We can address any concerns while you are here in our office. Our caring dental team treats each patient with respect and individual care.
Are LAPT and LANAP Painful?
Although dental laser therapy is generally painless, we may use localized anesthesia to make sure you feel relaxed throughout your treatment. The dental laser is designed for precision treatment, so you’ll also have less discomfort during recovery time.
