Dr. Keith Chertok now provides gum disease patients with a new alternative to help fight their unhealthy gums and increase the chance of a healthier smile. Laser gum surgery or the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) not only removes diseased gum tissue in patients, but it also stimulates bone growth and strengthens the jaw bone for dental implants.
LANAP uses a laser to successfully treat and kill diseased gum tissue. It can also help stimulate the healthy tissue as well as encourage new bone growth. With new bone in place, Dr. Chertok can then place dental implants where it once seemed impossible without bone grafts. So where many traditional dental procedures may not have been able to help a person already missing teeth, laser gum surgery or LANAP can actually help save teeth and make implants possible.
LANAP is the only FDA cleared protocol for treating gum disease. It has been scientifically researched and tested and is proven to work. A person can avoid most of the pain that comes with traditional surgery and he or she can also expect the recovery time to be very minimal.
