San Francisco Gum Disease Treatment
Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP for short, is a breakthrough treatment for those suffering from periodontal disease. With LANAP, there is no cutting or sewing of tissues, which is typically required with traditional gum surgery.
LANAP is a progressive technique using a specialized laser to destroy the bacteria which cause disease. Diseased areas treated with LANAP can regrow destroyed bone and tissues around the teeth. Results are typically much faster and recovery is less painful than with traditional scalpel surgery.
