WHY IS THE LANAP® PROCEDURE better for the treatment of gum disease?

  • The LANAP® Procedure is about as easy as erasing a blackboard — there's no cutting and no suturing.

  • There's much less discomfort with the LANAP® Protocol than with standard surgery -- during and after the procedure.

  • It takes less time than traditional surgery. All it takes is two 2-hour visits to the dentist and two follow up visits. Traditional surgery requires four sessions of about one hour each, with subsequent visits for suture removal and additional check-ups.

     
  • LANAP® gives better, longer-lasting results. In fact, 98% of LANAP® treated patients remain stable after five years.

  • Your dentist will probably recommend a soft diet for a day or two, and common sense should prevail, but in most cases, patients feel good enough to eat anything they want right after the procedure.

     
  • Following traditional surgery, recovery can take between to 2-4 weeks during which patients can experience considerable pain and swelling, where they may be restricted to liquid or soft diets.

  • There's less than 24 hour recovery period, so you won't lose time from work.

  • The LANAP® Procedure is safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking medications such as Plavix or aspirin.
