The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is revolutionizing the way dental professionals approach gum disease surgery. If you are looking for a qualified periodontist in Yuma, AZ, Dr. Randolph Snyder belongs to a select group of dental professionals in the country who offer LANAP® as an alternative to traditional gum disease surgery.
Unlike traditional gum disease surgery, which requires doctors to cut into the gum tissue to remove the infection and bacteria, LANAP® eradicates periodontitis using the PerioLase® MVP-7™. As the only FDA cleared laser on the market, the PerioLase® MVP-7™ is capable of extreme selectivity. Because of the laser’s ability to target only the diseased areas while leaving the healthy gum tissue intact, Dr. Snyder can often save teeth that would have otherwise been extracted.
The LANAP® Advantage – Less is More!
LANAP® offers many benefits over traditional gum disease surgery, including:
- Less Pain and Discomfort. Unlike traditional surgery, LANAP® does not use scalpels and sutures to remove the bacteria and infection caused by periodontitis. Consequently, the procedure offers the benefit of a more comfortable patient experience.
- Less Bleeding and Inflammation. Dr. Snyder controls bleeding with the laser, so patients experience less bleeding and complications. Moreover, the sophisticated laser technology used in LANAP® can remove up to 90 percent of inflammation in just one session.
- Less Gum Recession. While traditional surgery always produces some degree of gum recession, patients who undergo LANAP® often see none at all.
- Less Recovery Time. Because LANAP® is a noninvasive procedure, patients can return to work and resume their daily activities as soon as they leave the chair.
