Dr. Sharona Dayan Offers LANAP Laser Gum Disease Treatment in the Los Angeles Area

The LANAP treatment provides a minimally invasive solution for patients with gum disease or failing dental implants.

This treatment method provides the benefit of being less painful for patients with better esthetic results.

Dr. Sharona Dayan is pleased to offer the LANAP® protocol gum disease treatment and LAPIP™ protocol for ailing dental implants in Beverly Hills and surrounding areas.

"Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. With the LANAP protocol, we can help patients save their natural teeth by effectively treating the cause of the infection," said Dr. Dayan. "Just as effective as traditional surgery, this treatment method provides the benefit of being less painful for patients with better esthetic results."

The LANAP protocol can be performed in as little as one treatment session, and is safe to use on patients with health concerns such as diabetes, heart disease, and hemophilia, without discontinuing medication. It is the only scientifically proven laser gum disease treatment FDA cleared to regenerate the bone and tissues lost to gum disease. This means gum tissue and bone that are infected can be healed and regenerated instead of cut away.

Gum disease is a chronic bacterial infection that rarely has any symptoms in its early stages. Despite the lack of symptoms or pain, the disease can still cause serious damage to your mouth, leading to loss of teeth, which has been tied to decreased lifespan. Additionally, several other serious illnesses like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes have suggested links to gum disease.

LANAP treatment uses laser energy to target the source of gum disease, without harming or removing any healthy gum tissue, decreases pocket depth, and allows the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for scalpel or sutures. In cases of failing dental implants, the LAPIP treatment is used to treat peri-implantitis and save the implant. Patients report less pain and less post-op sensitivity and a quicker recovery when compared to traditional osseous surgery. The LANAP treatment is a patented procedure that requires doctors to complete advanced training from the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry (IALD).

For information on the LANAP gum disease treatment, or if you have symptoms of gum disease like puffy, swollen gums or bleeding, call Dr. Sharona Dayan at Aurora Periodontal Care at (310) 205-0900 for a consultation.
