Healthy smiles are often taken for granted: that is until something goes wrong. Gum disease can cause some unsightly and painful problems, and many treatments are invasive and time-consuming in nature. Luckily, LANAP is an innovative, non-invasive gum regeneration treatment that’s backed by real science and trusted by dental experts. See how LANAP can regrow your gums and give you back the smile you love below.
What is LANAP?
LANAP is an exciting new procedure for the treatment of periodontitis. It is a non-surgical method designed to treat and mitigate the harmful effects of gum disease. Whether your gum disease was caused by bad dental habits, dry mouth, or unlucky genetics, LANAP can restore and regenerate your gums. LANAP uses laser pulse variations to remove diseased tissue and stimulate regrowth of both the gums and the bones while encouraging gum reattachment. Additionally, these lasers only target compromised tissue and ensure the preservation of any remaining healthy tissue. If you have gum loss, LANAP may be the non-invasive treatment you seek.
The Dangers of Periodontiti
What do you know about gum disease? Although it is acommon ailment and doesn’t sound particularly frightening, it can have some harrowing effects. Gum disease is related to numerous serious health problems, and leaving your mouth untreated could put you at serious risk for gum loss and other issues. Scientific evidence supports relations between gum disease and decreased cognitive function, heart disease, cancer, chronic inflammation, and diabetes.
Signs of gum disease typically include:
- Pain with chewing
- Receding gum lines
- Loose teeth
- Bleeding gums
- Bad breath
In most cases, implementing proper dental hygiene will prevent the development of gum disease. However, if you are one of the unlucky ones, don’t fret. Almost half of adults in the U.S have some amount of gum disease, and there are a multitude of options to treat and prevent the formation of advanced periodontitis.
Can LANAP regrow gums?
In short, yes; LANAP can regrow gums. In fact, it is the only scientifically-proven and FDA-approved procedure for lasting periodontal regeneration. LANAP’s state-of-the-art laser technology activates growth proteins in your mouth. These proteins stimulate the regrowth of gums and bones, which work hard in your mouth long after the surgery is complete. Traditional gum surgery like flap/pocket reduction surgery, bone grafts, guided tissue regeneration, and bone surgery are invasive, painful, and time consuming. With LANAP, you can rest assured knowing your treatment is the most effective and least invasive on the market and your procedure will not only remove diseased tissue but promote the development of healthy tissue in the mouth.
