Are you an ideal candidate for LANAP Surgery?

To determine if you are an ideal candidate for LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) surgery, we’ll need to consider several factors:

  • The severity of your gum disease
  • Depth of your gum pockets
  • Your overall oral health
  • Underlying medical conditions
  • Consultation with a specialist

By considering these factors, we can determine if LANAP surgery is the right choice for you.

What to expect from Tidewater Dental LANAP Surgery

  1. We’ll begin with a thorough consultation, including x-rays and an oral examination, to detect dental issues and determine if LANAP suits you.
  2. In case LANAP is the right treatment for you, we’ll ensure your comfort by using local anesthesia. We’ll discuss sedation options if you have any concerns or feel nervous.
  3. We’ll use advanced laser technology to precisely remove diseased tissue below the gumline.
  4. The LANAP procedure will stimulate increased blood flow to the treated area, sealing the gums. This process promotes efficient regeneration of gum and bone tissues, leading to quick healing.

Most patients are typically able to resume their regular daily activities promptly. At Tidewater Dental, our goal is to provide you with a comfortable and effective LANAP experience, resulting in improved oral health and a revitalized smile.

Frequently asked questions about LANAP Surgery

faq lanap surgery
How can I determine if I have gum disease?
Gum disease in its early stages may not exhibit noticeable symptoms. However, as the condition progresses, the following signs are commonly observed:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Gums that bleed, especially during brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose teeth or changes in tooth alignment
Can gum disease impact overall health?

Absolutely! Recent studies have shown that gum disease can have systemic effects on overall health. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the infected gums, potentially increasing the risk of various health problems, including:

  • Heart attacks and cardiovascular disease
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Diabetes and its associated complications
  • Increased risk of stomach, liver, and pancreatic cancers

Maintaining good oral hygiene and seeking timely treatment for gum disease can help mitigate these risks and promote better overall health.

What are the benefits of LANAP over traditional gum surgery?

LANAP offers several advantages over traditional gum surgery, including minimal pain and discomfort, reduced bleeding and swelling, faster healing, and preservation of healthy gum tissue. It’s also a less invasive alternative to conventional gum surgery.

How long is the recovery period after LANAP?

The recovery period after LANAP is typically shorter compared to traditional gum surgery. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a day or two after the procedure. However, it’s important to follow any post-operative instructions provided by our dentist for optimal healing.

Does my insurance cover LANAP surgery?

It depends on your specific policy. Our offices accept most dental insurance plans, and we’ll assist you in understanding your coverage and anticipated expenses. To learn more about your coverage, contact us today.
