The benefits of LANAP® are many

  • Faster Healing
  • Virtually Painless
  • Back to Normal Activities Immediately
  • Very Safe
  • Non-Surgical
  • Minimal Bleeding
  • Normal Gum Line Restored
  • Saves Your Teeth

LANAP® takes only four hours and two appointments. There is no cutting involved, nor are there any stitches or incisions to complicate the healing process. LANAP® patients also typically experience far less swelling, pain and discomfort following a gum disease treatment session than patients who undergo surgical treatments.

LANAP® treatments are completely safe, so long as they are performed by a dentist trained in LANAP® technology. In fact, LANAP® may be an even safer option than traditional surgery for patients who suffer from diabetes, hemophilia, HIV or any other health condition in which an infection or bleeding could be potentially fatal.

There no longer is any reason to avoid painful gum disease treatment. Learn more about LANAP®.
