Laser Periodontal Treatment
Painless Treatment For Periodontal Diseases
Delaware Periodontics is the first to offer Laser Periodontal Therapy to our patients in Delaware, also called Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, for the treatment of gum disease. LANAP is a painless and effective treatment that does not require the use of a scalpel or sutures, it is minimally invasive and boasts rapid recovery times. With this incredible technology, Dr. Bradford Klassman provides periodontal treatment to patients in Wilmington, Dover, and the surrounding areas, mitigating pain and discomfort associated with gum disease, and promoting therapeutic healing.
What Is Laser Periodontal Therapy?
Laser Periodontal Therapy is the first FDA-approved laser treatment for gum disease, allowing us to treat patients with gum disease without the use of scalpel, making it a far more approachable and worry-free procedure.
Following your diagnosis of gum disease, Dr. Klassman will schedule a consultation to explain how the laser works and walk you through the entire treatment, take X-rays, and determine the severity of the infection.
For your first LANAP treatment, you will receive a local anesthetic to eliminate all discomfort, and a small laser fiber, equivalent to the thickness of three hairs, will be inserted between the tooth and gum to clear the infection. In just two hours you will be able to get on with the rest of your day.
Benefits Of Laser Periodontal Therapy
Because it is so effective and precise, Laser Periodontal Therapy is the our preferred treatment for gum disease. For patients, this means far less pain, bleeding, and swelling, no unnecessary tissue removal, and unbelievably fast recovery. Additionally, the procedure is less costly to you and your employer.
Laser Periodontal Therapy enables us to remove only the infected tissue, and leave the healthy tissue intact. This treatment also allows us to easily close the periodontal wound and stimulate healing. This treatment greatly enhances the likelihood that patients will be able to restore and protect otherwise healthy teeth. Furthermore, LANAP can help you with true periodontal regeneration on a previously diseased root surface. Learn more by clicking the inforgraphic link, about LANAP and true periodontal regeneration.
