In fact, research shows that LANAP is more effective than traditional gum disease treatments such as cut-and-sew methods. By avoiding the use of biologics, growth factors, and other exogenous materials, LANAP represents an incomparably effective solution for a variety of gum disease complications. LANAP laser gum disease treatment also eliminates the need for bone grafting, and reduces soft tissue inflammation without damaging healthy surrounding gum tissue.
In the past, gum disease treatment was defined by painful, invasive procedures that often ended up damaging healthy surrounding gum tissue as much as it fixed inflamed tissue. With LANAP laser gum disease treatment, our periodontist Dr. Benjamin Katayev incorporates a minimally invasive approach that is far superior to traditional cut-and-sew methods.
Additionally, the gum disease experts and periodontist team at Dental Group NY offer LAPIP (Laser-Assisted Peri-Implantitis Protocol) for patients with soft tissue disease as a result of failed dental implants. Like LANAP, LAPIP utilizes state-of-the-art laser treatments to eliminate the buildup of bacteria and subsequent inflammation. LAPIP also helps to regenerate healthy soft tissue, which will allow the implant to reintegrate and re-establish itself into the pocket.
