The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) allows Dr. Finley to treat gum disease and also to stimulate the growth of bone, to possibly reattach and save natural teeth. For teeth that cannot be saved, dental implants are a replacement option.

LANAP is able to be performed in far less time and with far less impact to patients than any type of gum surgery before it.

Dental implants are known to be the ideal replacement for missing teeth, as they most securely fuse with the natural bone and provide all of the benefits that natural teeth do. When implants are not immediately viable, other reconstructive options are also available.
