LANAP Laser Gum Treatment - Chattanooga, TN

A Minimally Invasive Alternative to Traditional Gum Disease Surgery

Laser Gum Disease Treatment

In our Chattanooga, TN practice, our periodontists offer the most advanced options for periodontal surgery.

Laser gum disease treatment is available, thanks to LANAP™ therapy with the PerioLase MVP-7™ laser. This FDA cleared laser removes diseased gum tissue while leaving healthy cells undisrupted, offering significant advantages over traditional surgery. LANAP is an amazing breakthrough in periodontal treatment and we are excited to offer it to our patients. It’s a gentle and minimally-invasive method of treating gum disease with little pain or discomfort. The technique kills up to 99% of disease-causing bacteria from within the infected gum pocket. And no cutting or suturing is required!

During your LANAP treatment, a small laser fiber is placed within the pocket between the gums and tooth. The laser’s power is so advanced, it only disrupts the diseased gums and leaves healthy tissue intact. After undergoing laser gum treatment, new, healthy tissue can reattach to the root surface, reducing the risk of bone and tooth loss.

How We Treat Gum Disease Comfortably with LANAP

LANAP Laser Gum Treatment vs. Traditional Therapy

LANAP laser gum treatment saves tissue that would otherwise be traumatized during traditional surgery. This results in a more comfortable procedure and faster healing for our patients.

Other benefits of LANAP include minimal bleeding, less discomfort and reduced recovery times, prevention of root decay and recession, and it’s safe for patients with certain health conditions that wouldn’t be able to undergo surgery otherwise. Laser-assisted gum therapy is even comparable in price to traditional periodontal surgery. The cost does depend on the level of infection present, but when compared to replacing damaged teeth, the cost is usually less. LANAP is a smart investment in your oral health and your personal budget! Enjoy improved results in areas of both gum disease and peri-implantitis. We look forward to meeting you in our Chattanooga, TN office. Give us a call today to schedule your consultation.
