LANAP® Laser Treatment in Florence & Ft. Thomas, KY

LANAP® is cutting edge technology that introduces an improved method of treating moderate to severe gum disease. Gum disease has been connected to a number of health issues that millions of people in the United States, and worldwide, suffer from. Some of these health issues include heart disease, pancreatic cancer, diabetes, low birth weight babies, and other systemic conditions.

The procedure uses a highly advanced laser called the PerioLase® MVP-7™. With this laser, Dr. Ryan Estes is able to eradicate bacteria found under the gums that cause gum disease. LANAP® is also a minimally painful, effective way to treat gum disease. It does so by removing bacteria and diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue alone.

This procedure has faster healing times through its minimally invasive process. It is only minimally painful due to the precision of the PerioLase® MVP-7™. In most cases, there is no need for post-surgery medication. Most patients are able to return to their daily activities that same day.

LANAP® also effectively works to reduce the gum recession that is commonly associated with traditional treatment. With this procedure, inflammation is reduced by 90 percent because the PerioLase® MVP-7™ targets bacteria in the mouth while leaving healthy tissue alone. It also lessens the bleeding that is associated with traditional surgery. With LANAP®, we can often save teeth that may have otherwise been deemed hopeless.

The procedure also has been scientifically proven to regenerate the bone around the teeth. LANAP® has been FDA cleared and has extensive research and positive scientific results to support its success.
