Joyce M. Litch, D.D.S., M.S.D., now offers the FDA cleared Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for periodontal disease treatment to her San Jose, CA patients suffering from gum disease. With a specialized laser that attacks the bacteria and inflamed tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact, Dr. Litch is able to remove up to 90 percent of the inflammation caused by gum disease.

Joyce M. Litch, D.D.S., M.S.D., can now remove up to 90 percent of inflammation caused by gum disease with the new Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. This new laser procedure offers patients a less invasive periodontal disease treatment than traditional gum surgery.

Millions of adults around the country suffer from gum disease and many of them are not seeking treatment for fear of traditional treatment options. The new LANAP periodontal disease treatment uses a laser rather than a scalpel, and sutures are not required to hold the gums in place after the surgery, making the healing time relatively short.

Dr. Litch has joined a relatively small group of dental professionals that are fully trained and certified on LANAP. She provides patients with the periodontal disease treatment that is necessary to bring a patient back to good oral health. When a person has gum disease they can experience many dental issues, including bleeding gums, bone disintegration, receding gums and even tooth loss. Therefore, they can be at a higher risk for health problems such as diabetes or heart issues.

Utilizing the new LANAP procedure, Dr. Litch gently removes both the bacteria that cause the disease and the unhealthy gum tissue that has been compromised by the disease. The laser will stimulate clotting so that the gums will reattach to the teeth roots and the bone around the teeth is bio stimulated to regenerate.

Because the LANAP procedure is less invasive and highly effective, Dr. Litch hopes more patients will actively seek out the treatment that they need. If gum disease is allowed to progress unchecked, there are many health complications that can occur. By seeking treatment early, a patient can stop the disease process and drastically improve their health. For more information about periodontal disease treatment, visit
