LANAP Laser Periodontal Treatment, Yorktown Heights New York
Performed without a scalpel or sutures, LANAP™ utilizes the body’s ability to heal itself. Dr. Wetzler uses the PerioLase to create an environment for regeneration of the tissues around your teeth (gum, bone, cementum, ligament) that are lost due to periodontal disease.
LANAP is a laser-based approach to periodontal disease using an Nd:YAG free running pulsed laser requiring specific knowledge and skills drawn from all aspects of dentistry. As of March 2016 the PerioLase MVP-7 is the FIRST LASER TO RECEIVE FDA CLEARANCE FOR PERIODONTAL REGENERATION OF THE ATTACHMENT APPARATUS (new cementum, new periodontal ligament and new alveolar bone) on a previously diseased root surface when used specifically in the LANAP protocol.
The reasons we use LANAP are to: remove only the diseased tissue without removing any of the healthy tissue, maintain the height of the tissue around teeth, minimize discomfort to the patient, get a closure of the periodontal pocket and to stimulate the body’s natural ability to regenerate bone.
What this means to you:
- less discomfort during and after the procedure
- less swelling
- less tissue is removed
- less down time
- less recovery time
- LANAP is safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes and those taking medications such as blood thinners or aspirin (without having to stop the medications).
