In a recent blog post, we discussed the symptoms and dangers of periodontal disease, as well as some effective treatments our team could offer you here in the Philadelphia area. Today, we’d like to go into a little more detail regarding one of them: LANAP. With the help of LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) in either our Collegeville or Williamsport office, Dr. DiGiallorenzo can get rid of any bacterial infection you have in a single visit, no cutting, stitching, blood, or pain required!
Conservative, Careful Treatment with Dynamite Results
LANAP is a perfect solution for patients who experience anxiety at the mere thought of sitting in that big dentist’s chair. It’s the only FDA approved laser for treating gum infection, and while Dr. DiGiallorenzo and his team utilize several effective periodontal treatments, LANAP is the only one that actually encourages tissue regeneration too.
In the past, traditional gum disease treatment involved a dentist cutting away the infected tissue with tools – a process that was terrifying for many patients, especially those who were already experiencing tenderness and pain. LANAP doesn’t involve sharp edges or stitched; its only tool is the aforementioned laser, which is used over several passes by Dr. DiGiallorenzo to destroy diseased tissue and promote healing, all pain-free, in a single office visit. You’ll be amazed by how quickly you’re back to your daily routine, now with clean gums and an improved outlook on your health.
Don’t put off your treatment for periodontal disease any longer! Our team is committed to providing you with the most up-to-date and effective treatments available in order to make you feel comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. Call either our Collegeville or Williamsport office today to schedule a consultation appointment. Patients from the Philadelphia area and beyond are always welcome!
