LANAP Treatment in College Station, TX
LANAP, or Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is a form of periodontal therapy used to treat periodontitis. Unlike traditional surgeries, which involve the removal of both diseased and healthy gum tissues, LANAP specifically targets infected areas of the gums – leaving healthy tissues behind. LANAP works using the Periolase® laser, which is FDA approved for periodontal treatment. This flexible laser emits energy at varying pulsating frequencies, effectively removing periodontal infections and facilitating the regeneration of the gums in areas where they have pulled away and recessed from the teeth.
