Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
Gallardo & Lamas Periodontics and Implant Dentistry of Miami, Florida, are pleased to now offer LANAP, a new groundbreaking treatment for gum disease. This FDA-approved Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is the preferred treatment option for periodontal patients today.
The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) offers clear benefits over traditional treatments for gum disease. Unlike traditional periodontal disease surgeries that require painful incisions, suturing and multiple follow up sessions, LANAP utilizes an advanced laser technique to comfortably, safely and efficiently restore healthy gum tissue. The procedure begins by using a probing device to locate pocketed areas of soft tissue. The PerioLaser is then applied to clear bacteria and removes the infected gum tissue. Ultrasonic tools help to eliminate any loosened bacteria before the second laser pass is activated to clot the disinfected tissue. The procedure ends with the reattachment of gum tissue to the newly cleaned surface, thus allowing healthy tissue to grow. Patients suffering from gum disease can now appreciate an effective, minimally invasive procedure with a recovery time of less than 24 hours. Furthermore, LANAP is safe for individuals experiencing common health conditions, such as diabetes or blood clotting issues.
