Using LANAP laser therapy for gum disease

Using LANAP laser therapy for gum disease

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.

Oral Cancer Screening Video
Every patient at Downtown Dental undergoes a thorough check for oral cancer and other dental health issues. This video shows how it’s done.
Here at downtown Dental, we take oral health and cancer screenings very serious. This month is November and it’s the month of oral health cancer awareness and screenings. Every patient we examined thoroughly, we look and we check their lips, tongue and we check for any abnormalities or bumps. At home you should also check to make sure that everything looks okayLeava is going to demonstrate what in oral health cancer screening is and what we examine. So, we first start off by checking all the lips. We make sure that the lips look healthy and that we palpate them, which is touching them and making sure that there’s nothing anormal. Then we go into the mucosa and check the cheeks. We’re going to look and check the hard palate as well as the soft palate. This might tickle a little. We checked the posterior of the tongue. Do you, Viola, go ahead and say, aaaaaa. We check the lateral sides of the tongue. Go ahead and sit your tongue showed up great. And we also check the floor of the mouth. Get the tongue to the roof of your mouth. Good all clear. Oral cancer is especially important to check the patients who are smokers, alcohol drinkers and we thank you for watching the video.
