gum diseaseLaser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a cutting-edge laser treatment system in Houston, TX that safely and gently treats gum disease without causing trauma to your healthy tissue. Dr. J. Robert Friedberg uses LANAP® in Houston, TX, to improve oral health in patients who have diseased gum tissue. If you have periodontal gum disease, you are more likely to reduce your long-term symptoms if you receive treatment as soon as you can.

Benefits of LANAP®

Once you understand how the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure protocol works, you’ll quickly see why it is one of the most desirable treatments for gum disease in Houston, TX. Unlike traditional surgical gum disease removal that relies on scalpels and other sharp tools to manually cut away inflamed tissue, Laser-assisted dentistry takes a gentler, more precise approach. Here are just a few of the benefits the LANAP treatment system is known to offer:

  • Precision: The FDA-cleared laser used with the LANAP® protocol is remarkably precise and only removes diseased tissue. It can be difficult—if not impossible—to achieve a comparable level of precision with the tools used in traditional gum disease
  • Minimal discomfort: Patients who receive the LANAP® protocol are often pleasantly surprised to discover just how minimally uncomfortable it is. This is largely due to the fact that there are no incisions made and no need for sutures. Some patients don’t even require medication to manage their post-procedural pain.
  • New bone growth: There is no procedure besides LANAP® that has been scientifically proven to help the bone around the teeth regenerate.

There are many other benefits of laser-assisted dentistry protocol offers, including rapid recovery times, ability to keep existing teeth and decreased tooth sensitivity. The LANAP® protocol is an ongoing procedure that continues to benefit you each time you receive it.
