Dr. Robert Hindman is now accepting new patients for the innovative Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. Patients with gum disease often experience bleeding or painful gums, and the recommended treatment is often surgery. However, LANAP offers a new and less-invasive periodontal disease treatment for such patients.
LANAP uses a small laser tip to remove diseased tissue and kill the bacteria that causes gum disease. Since it is a less-invasive procedure than traditional gum surgery, patients usually experience only moderate discomfort.
Traditional gum surgery uses a scalpel to surgically take away diseased tissue. When a scalpel is used, often times healthy tissue may be removed as well, simply because there is no way to get to the diseased spots without cutting through healthy gums. LANAP is less invasive, and the laser operates at a wavelength that differentiates diseased tissue from healthy tissue. It effectively removes diseased areas without causing harm to healthy gums. This method results in less post treatment gum pain, as well as less gum line recession.
