The LANAP® Procedure in Dallas and Rockwall, TX

 

LANAP®
(Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure)

 

 


Basic Steps of the LANAP® Protocol


If you do not take the steps to get treatment for the early stages of gum disease, the condition can progress to advanced periodontitis. At this stage, the bacteria begin to destroy connective tissue and bone that are holding your teeth in place. Laser gum surgery may be necessary to eradicate the bacteria that is now spreading deep down into the periodontal pockets. If you are experiencing gum disease symptoms such as loose teeth, bad breath, or swollen gums, it is even more important to seek treatment with Dr. Frederick Olden so that he can help to restore your oral health.

With laser gum surgery, Dr. Olden may be able to save any loose teeth that would otherwise need to be removed. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is one of the most advanced and effective gum disease treatments available today.

About Laser Gum Surgery

Here is what you can expect when undergoing LANAP®:

1. Pocket measurement - Dr. Olden will determine how much gum to tooth attachment loss has occurred by measuring the periodontal pocket depths with a small ruler.
2. Bacteria removal - Dr. Olden will use a pulsed laser light from the PerioLase® MVP-7™ to destroy infected tissue and get rid of bacteria beneath the gum line. The laser allows for healthy tissue to be remain intact, so the majority of patients experience little to no pain or discomfort during this process.
3. Calculus removal - Dr. Olden uses an ultrasonic scaler on the root surfaces of the teeth. This removes tartar deposits from under the gum line.
4. Clotting - Dr. Olden will apply the laser again to get rid of any remaining bacteria and to stimulate the clotting process. The clot helps to prevent germs from entering the area and starts the healing process.
5. Tissue compression - The tissue is gently recompressed against the root surfaces of the teeth.
6. Bite adjustment - Dr. Olden will adjust the bite as needed to ensure that there has not been any extensive trauma to the area.
