Advanced LANAP Laser Therapy at Palmetto Periodontics

Welcome to Palmetto Periodontics, your trusted provider of LANAP treatments in Columbia, SC. Our clinic is dedicated to utilizing the latest in dental technology to offer minimally invasive solutions for periodontal disease through LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) therapy.

What is LANAP?

LANAP is a revolutionary laser treatment designed to treat gum disease without the need for incisions or sutures. This FDA-approved procedure uses a specialized laser to target and remove diseased tissue while preserving healthy gum tissue. It also stimulates bone and tissue regeneration around the teeth, offering a less painful and more effective alternative to traditional gum surgery.

Benefits of LANAP Treatments

  • Less Discomfort: Patients typically experience less discomfort during and after the procedure compared to traditional surgery.
  • Faster Healing: The minimally invasive nature of the laser treatment promotes quicker recovery times.
  • Reduced Bleeding: The precision of the laser minimizes bleeding during the procedure.
  • Improved Gum Health: Effectively eradicates bacteria and diseased tissue, encouraging natural regeneration.

The LANAP Procedure Explained

We start with a thorough assessment to determine the extent of gum disease and discuss if LANAP is the right choice for your condition.

Treatment Steps:

  1. Measurement of Pockets: Depth of the gum pockets is measured.
  2. Laser Treatment: The PerioLase MVP-7 laser specifically targets and removes infected tissue.
  3. Root Cleaning: Calculus is removed from the root surface, allowing the gum tissue to heal.
  4. Tissue Regeneration: The laser is used to stimulate clotting and promote the reattachment of the gum to the teeth.
