If you have experience dramatic loss of gum tissue due to advanced periodontal disease and have avoided restorative measures because you are afraid to have surgery, you’ll want to keep reading. Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) can repair the damage to your gums with no cutting and no sutures.
Unlike traditional gum grafting surgery, LANAP uses a special laser to thoroughly remove all traces of bacteria and infection from the gum pockets. Next, a fine-tipped ultrasonic cleaner removes any hardened bacteria. This newly-cleaned an smooth surface stimulates new growth of your gums and the restoration begins. This new tissue connects to the tooth surface through a fibrous clot that is generated during the procedure.
