National Without a Scalpel Day is fast approaching, and in an effort to help educate the public about LANAP® laser gum surgery, Dr. Walter Wood, a periodontist in Jacksonville, FL, is recommending for everyone to have a consultation so they can learn if they can benefit from the procedure.

Change Your Life With LANAP®

The LANAP® procedure has been cleared by the FDA and will drastically change the way you view gum surgery. If you have been on the fence about having it done because you are not excited about the idea of scalpels and incisions, then you will pleased to know you no longer have to worry about those things. The LANAP®, short for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure is done with the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to remove diseased and decayed gum tissue and bacteria to successfully treat gum disease. It is the most recommended treatment of choice for gum disease because it allows the periodontist to leave behind more healthy tissue, resulting in a healthier smile.

Gain Control of Your Dental Health

Thanks to this revolutionary treatment, you no longer have to walk around afraid to smile or visit your periodontist for treatment. You can overcome your phobia and still receive the treatment you need to improve your oral health, smile and overall lifestyle. Although this treatment is quite impressive, it is not recommended for everyone. If you have any of the following, you may not be a good candidate for the procedure.

  • Have healthy gums
  • Only suffer from gingivitis
  • Have gum pockets less than 5mm

You should always consult with your periodontist in Jacksonville, FL for an in-depth review of your dental  x-rays and medical and dental history to find out for certain if the LANAP® Protocol is right for you.
