What is LANAP LANAP Procedure LANAP vs. Traditional Gum Surgery
Untreated gum disease is one of the leading causes of missing teeth and is even linked to disease and other health issues, including cancer, heart disease and low birth rates.
Many people avoid traditional treatment and want a gum surgery alternative. And who can blame them? Traditional gum disease treatment hurts and causes other concerns:
- •Patients often have teeth pulled and require dentures and implants.
- •Deep cuts are made, followed by scraping to remove offending bacteria.
- •Healthy gum tissue is destroyed.
- •The gums bleed heavily and require stiches and bandages to heal.
- •The recovery period is lengthy and it hurts. Pain medication is commonly prescribed.
- •Only soft foods are allowed.
