Opelika Dental Arts offers LANAP™ laser periodontal treatment for patients with gum disease. LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) works to remove diseased gum tissue and promote gum tissue regeneration. This treatment uses an advanced Periolase® laser to target the diseased tissue in your mouth and begin the process of helping you regain your oral health. For more information about LANAP laser periodontal treatment, and to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jim Tatum, please contact our office at 334-745-3135.
Laser periodontal therapy works by targeting only diseased gum tissue. This tissue is easily identifiable based on its color. The laser is used to agitate the healthy tissue in the mouth, creating an environment in which the supporting structures of your mouth (gum, bone, ligament, etc.) will be able to regenerate. This works to encourage healthy growth, which in turn helps reduce the risk that periodontal disease will return to your mouth.
LANAP laser gum treatment is a minimally invasive procedure, producing far fewer side effects than traditional gum surgery. It also gives you a more comfortable procedure and typically results in little to no post-operative pain. Our dentist and team will provide you with detailed post-op instructions following your treatment to ensure that you heal properly.
