What is LANAP® Gum Disease Treatment?

LANAP laser gum disease treatment is the fastest and most technologically advanced treatment for severe gum and oral soft tissue disease. LANAP is a research-supported, FDA-approved solution for advanced, hard-to-treat periodontal disease, and for more than seven years, Sundance Implant and Periodontal Center in Provo, UT, has used LANAP to regenerate oral soft tissue and promote new bone growth and soft tissue reattachment for patients suffering from late-stage gum disease. Our periodontist Dr. Nicholson uses LANAP laser gum disease treatment to galvanize bone regeneration and reduce soft tissue inflammation, with the long-term goal of correcting severely distressed teeth and reinstating pristine oral health back to the dentition.

Unlike surgical periodontal disease treatment, LANAP laser treatment is a non-invasive means of targeting inflammation-causing bacteria in the soft tissue, while simultaneously reattaching healthy tissue to the surface of the tooth. Our state-of-the-art PerioLase® MVP-7 LANAP laser allows Dr. Nicholson to perform incision-free gum disease treatment with virtually no pain, bleeding, or root sensitivity.

Understanding the Risk of Severe Gum Disease

Millions of people never realize they have soft tissue disease until it’s far too late. When disease of the oral soft tissue reaches advanced stages, the risk of severe oral health complications becomes exceedingly high. In many instances, by the time a patient comes into our Provo, UT, periodontist office, the deleterious effects of gum disease have been active for years. Untreated periodontal disease can lead to lost teeth, bone recession, facial distortion, and even severe long-term health complications. Therefore, it is imperative to receive gum disease treatment as soon as possible at the first notice of symptoms.

 The delicate soft tissue of the gums is an important and highly active microenvironment within the oral cavity. In addition to functioning as a barrier against dangerous bacteria, the gums provide structural support for both the teeth and the jaw. Gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, occurs when bacteria accumulate in the mouth and starts producing inflammation and bleeding on and around the gums. Good oral hygiene, frequent cleanings, and consistent brushing and flossing are the best solution for reversing the earliest signs of gingivitis. When left untreated, gingivitis can progress into more severe stages of periodontitis.

The Importance of Early Periodontitis Treatment

When patients fail to receive gingivitis treatment during the earliest stages of gum disease, dangerous bacteria will build up on the teeth in the form of plaque. If left untreated by a periodontist, the plaque will eventually harden into tartar, which releases toxins that can inflame and seriously damage the delicate soft tissue of the gums. When this happens, the gums will begin to pull away from the teeth and form what is known as periodontal pockets. When bacteria build up long-term in these pockets, severe infection ensues and can lead to bone loss, tooth loss, and other severe oral and whole-body health complications.

The Cutting-Edge Solution of Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Even the most advanced and severe stages of periodontal disease can be eliminated using our LANAP laser gum disease treatment in Provo, UT. Whereas severe gum disease traditionally required lengthy invasive surgeries, LANAP is an entirely non-invasive procedure that eliminates bacteria-producing inflammation at the site of soft tissue damage. And since LANAP therapy treats only the affected area, the risk of post-procedural infection is practically non-existent. As opposed to the strong prescription painkillers that are often needed with traditional surgical treatments, Advil or Extra Strength Tylenol are generally all that is needed for LANAP post-operative medication.

After numbing the site with a local anesthetic, Dr. Nicholson will use the PerioLase laser to eliminate bacteria and clean out the infected soft tissue, immediately closing the periodontal gap. Patients at Sundance Implant and Periodontal Center in Provo, UT, benefit from LANAP laser gum disease treatment because it offers numerous advantages compared to traditional cut-and-sew treatments. Studies even show that in the weeks and months following LANAP laser gum disease treatment, soft tissue bacteria, and infection remain virtually non-existent.
