Laser Periodontal Therapy – LANAP
What is LANAP?
LANAP is a treatment alternative to traditional periodontal surgery. A tiny laser fiber (about the thickness of three hairs) is inserted between the tooth and the gum, and the infection is cleared away. The procedure is fast: It takes just two 2-hour sessions. Our periodontist will treat one half of your mouth at each session…and you’ll probably feel good enough to go right back to work afterwards.
It is our number one concern is to make sure as a patient that you are understand your treatment options and are comfortable while having your treatment done. For a relaxing, stress free experience we offer sedation therapy.
Nitrous Oxide is used as a conscious sedative during dental visits. Since it is a mild sedative, patients are still conscious and can talk to their dentist throughout the appointment. The effects wear off almost immediately.
IV sedation is a procedure that allows treatment to be completed while you are asleep. It is both safe and effective when administered by a trained professional.
