Certified Queens periodontist Dr. Prabha Krishnan announces that the FDA approved Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) supports regeneration of bone tissue which is often a vital tool for treating periodontal disease. In most cases, the LANAP® protocol is used for the preservation and restoration of natural teeth and removing periodontal disease while the procedure acts as a gum surgery alternative. Dr. Krishnan, a certified LANAP® protocol periodontist in Queens, can use the procedure to fight gingivitis as well. Laser Assisted Periodontal Treatment is a good alternative treatment for teeth that may need to be extracted.
The LANAP® surgery has been performed for over a decade and gained FDA approval as a gum surgery alternative for teeth disease back in 2004. The LANAP® laser used by Queens periodontist Dr. Krishnan treats the periodontal pocket of infected or diseased gum tissue. This advanced surgical technique is not only a gum surgery alternative that is no cut, no sew, and no stitch, but it also uses the laser with minimal pain and bleeding to get rid of the periodontal disease leaving the healthy gum tissue intact.
By having a surgical procedure that doesn't involve a scalpel, this quickens the healing process and minimizes the downtime that the patient will have after the procedure. The LANAP® procedure is a surgical method that efficiently replaces the use of a conventional scalpel during the periodontal surgery, and as mentioned above, requires no sutures whatsoever. This reduces swelling and also the bleeding following operation. Patients usually leave the session and continue their daily activities. This is also a main reason the LANAP® laser surgical treatment is considered a medical breakthrough as a gum surgery alternative or periodontal treatment for periodontal disease and dental implants.
The LANAP® procedure is widely used by expert periodontists all over the world, but few periodontists in Queens have the certification or knowledge that Dr. Krishnan has to use this laser protocol. This technological breakthrough is also available for those who experience chronic bad breath, suffer from bleeding gums, or are prone to periodontal disease. Many patients looking for second opinions or are nervous and afraid of gum surgery using a scalpel visit Dr. Krishnan with excellent results.
