The laser technology is the latest and sophisticated treatment in dental care. They are beginning to get increasingly popular in the field of cosmetic dentistry. LANAP has been a great boon to individuals with periodontal disease. LANAP has been developed by Dr Delwin of California and Dr Robert Gregg. This is one of the striking options for people affected by gum diseases. It is a non-invasive form of treatment. Conservative surgical operations of the gum involve making cuts in the gums and then stitching back the gums. In LANAP, the periodontist adopts a dental laser and there are no cuts or stitches.

The healing time in traditional surgeries is far greater and the chances of success are also minimal as compared to LANAP. The patient experiences absolutely no discomfort or pain and there is no bleeding of gums. This laser technology has become a roaring success and thousands of patients all over the globe are going in for LANAP. Many patients are happy with this laser technology, since the after care is also minimal. The recovery time is absolutely nil which is the greatest advantage. Patients can go back to their daily routine the same day as against the conventional gum surgery treatment where sometimes days or months were required for the recovery. LANAP is patient friendly and hence the anxiousness associated with surgery is practically nil. People affected with gum disease used to forego the treatment because of the pain and fear, but thanks to LANAP, this fear has been eliminated absolutely.

The cost of laser surgery is definitely less as compared to the traditional gum surgeries. The cost varies from individual to individual and the extent of gum disease. Periodontitis is a condition of the gums which affects adults wherein the gums are damaged and adults begin to lose teeth. There is excruciating pain and if left unattended to, the tooth would fall off easily. If LANAP is adopted, then the pain would be practically negligible and patients can see positive effects.

The periodontist would first examine the gum condition and also check the extent of the decay of the gums before starting the LANAP treatment. The LANAP basically helps in scraping out the unhealthy tissues of the gums and safeguards the healthy gums. Once the laser has been used, the periodontist would then scrape out the bacteria inside the gums using hand tools. Once this is through, the laser is once again used to bind the gums so that the bacteria does not get an entry back into the gums or tooth.
