At Downtown Dental in Los Angeles, California, we know it is important to maintain a healthy smile free from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, is an infection that can reach different stages, causing irreversible damage. This infection can result in diseased gum tissue that needs to be removed and recontoured after the condition has been controlled. We are pleased to offer a solution that does not require cutting the tissue and provides improved comfort. This treatment is known as LANAP laser therapy and is available at Downtown Dental.
What is LANAP laser therapy?
If you have gum disease, you may benefit from LANAP laser therapy with Dr. Mungcal, of Downtown Dental. LANAP, or Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery for treating gum disease. The laser technology doesn’t require traditional scalpels or cutting and helps to remove infected tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact and promoting faster healing time. As a result, patients often report less discomfort and swelling compared to traditional surgery.
What are the benefits of LANAP periodontal treatment?
Not only does LANAP laser therapy offer improved comfort for our patients, but it also offers several other benefits. This cutting-edge treatment allows for better access to hard-to-reach areas and improves the overall health of the gums. It can also help to prevent bone loss and maintain a stable foundation for the teeth, improving long-term oral health.
If you have been affected by periodontal disease, you will need to have diseased tissue removed and addressed for health and appearance purposes. Our team can assist with this advanced treatment protocol using high-quality lasers administered by trained and experienced professionals.
