LANAP® Laser Gum Disease Therapy


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over half of adults nationwide have some form of periodontal disease, otherwise known as gum disease. Left untreated periodontal disease is a major cause of tooth loss.

Advanced gum disease or periodontitis is a serious infection that causes pockets of bacteria to form beneath the gums which loosens teeth. In addition to permanent tooth loss, numerous studies show a link between Periodontal Disease and patients’ risks of developing or worsening the symptoms of serious conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and even some forms of cancer.

Treatment for periodontal disease has traditionally involved invasive gum surgery to cut diseased tissue and extract teeth to remove the infection. Fortunately, Horizon Dental Care offers an advanced, minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery called LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure).

LANAP® is an FDA-cleared laser treatment for gum disease that can effectively treat your infection without incisions or sutures. It is a targeted treatment that can be very effective for treating patients with moderate to severe gum disease.

If you are looking for a quick and painless gum disease treatment with little to no downtime, laser gum surgery may be the ideal treatment for you.
