Laser gum surgery with Dr. Darryl Field makes treating periodontal disease fast and gentle. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is the latest and most advanced way of treating periodontal disease today. LANAP® is FDA-cleared, minimally-invasive, and supported by strong scientific research and histological studies.
Laser light replaces the scalpel for a no-cut, no-stitch gum disease surgery that is extremely precise. It is designed to ferret out the bacteria between teeth and gums without harming healthy gum tissue. This makes gum surgery less painful with no need for heavy anesthetic or pain medications.
Gum disease has been linked to a variety of health complications including heart disease and low birth-weight babies. Until now the majority of the treatment options available were invasive and painful. LANAP is minimally invasive and does not require the cutting or stitching of the gums!
Dr. Field only performs LANAP® with the Periolase® MVP-7™ because leading periodontists know that the Periolase® is the only FDA-cleared dental laser on the market for treating periodontal disease. Noted for its extreme precision, laser surgery does not harm healthy gum tissue the way the scalpel does. It only goes after the disease, which means less bleeding and swollen gums.
Treating periodontal disease with LANAP® allows patients to get back to work and play faster. Because the bacteria are removed without any cutting, the body is able to heal much quicker.
Treating periodontal disease with a scalpel leaves the patient with some degree of receding gums because as it cuts and scrapes away bad tissue, it destroys good tissue at the same time. But with laser, the gum line remains nearly intact because it only destroys bacteria, never disturbing healthy gum tissue.
Treating periodontal disease with laser also saves teeth. LANAP® is scientifically proven to stimulate bone growth in the jaw, increasing the support and protection that natural teeth need to stay healthy, and that is truly revolutionary.
