What is LANAP® laser treatment?
LANAP® laser treatment is a method of periodontitis treatment that uses advanced laser technology to eliminate bacteria and diseased tissue from the mouth. It is widely considered to be both minimally invasive and minimally painful compared with traditional gum surgery. This is because the laser can identify and remove the diseased tissue without harming teeth, bone, or healthy tissue. This also makes LANAP® laser surgery more convenient for patients, as there is less bleeding, minimal gum recession, and a very small risk of post-surgery complications. In fact, most patients do not even require pain medication and are able to continue with their normal daily routines that same day.
Is it safe?
The LANAP® protocol is an FDA cleared method of laser periodontitis treatment. There is a large body of research from around the world available to patients which spans decades and addresses the long term effects of the procedure. There is also a rigorous training regimen that doctors must accomplish before they can perform LANAP® treatment. Dr. Staadecker is part of a select group of professionals that have completed certification training. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, as he will gladly share his credentials and address any concerns you have regarding periodontitis treatment.
