Dr. Michael Colleran is joining an advanced minority of dental professionals in offering his patients the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) to remove gum disease. This FDA-cleared gum disease treatment preserves healthy tissue, and the laser used can help prevent future tooth loss by stimulating regeneration in the bone.
For patients who have a high risk of tooth loss due to periodontal disease, LANAP can be a more comfortable and effective solution than traditional periodontal surgery. LANAP stimulates growth in the surrounding bone, making teeth more likely to heal and return to a healthy state once the gum disease has been removed. LANAP also leaves the surrounding gum tissue completely intact, which leaves teeth more stable and less exposed to future infection or damage.
LANAP will also appeal to patients who worried about losing teeth, but were reluctant to undergo traditional gum surgery. The laser surgery is very quick, and it minimizes pain, bleeding, and is comfortable during the time needed to heal. Dr. Colleran measures the gum pockets of the patient, uses the laser to remove the gum disease, and then uses a special instrument to remove build-up and tartar. Dr. Colleran finishes the gum disease treatment by using the laser to stimulate the tooth and bone and to seal the gum pocket.
It is important for patients who suffer from gum disease and are at risk for tooth and bone loss to seek gum disease treatment. Patients can find out more about the advantages LANAP offers over traditional periodontal surgery or set up an appointment with Dr. Colleran by calling his office or visiting his website today.
