The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or the LANAP protocol, is the single most effective treatment option for patients with moderate to severe periodontal disease. At LANAP & Implant Center of Pennsylvania in Williamsport, PA and Collegeville, PA, Dr. David DiGiallorenzo and his team offer a comprehensive approach to the treatment of gum disease, a condition that may lead to a variety of other health conditions if not treated properly. With LANAP periodontal therapy, Dr. DiGiallorenzo ensures complete eradication of bacterial infection in a way that is far more comfortable for his patients.
How LANAP Promotes Faster Recovery
Traditional gum disease treatment involves the use of scalpels to cut away diseased tissue. The treated area is then sutured closed; this is a process that often results in significant patient discomfort. With LANAP periodontal therapy, Dr. DiGiallorenzo can safely eradicate the bacterial infection while simultaneously promoting the healing of the gingival tissue.
While regular surgery for gum disease results in a recovery period of approximately two to four weeks, patients who undergo LANAP laser gum treatment typically experience total healing within 24 hours. Bleeding, swelling, and discomfort are drastically diminished, allowing patients to return to work and their normal everyday activities sooner. In fact, most LANAP patients are comfortable enough to eat their choice of solid foods (following common sense regarding hard or crunchy foods) on the same day as their procedure.
