What is LANAP?
LANAP stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, which utilizes laser technology to treat advanced cases of periodontal (gum) disease.
Gum disease is an infection of the bone and soft tissues that support your teeth. If this condition is left untreated, it will result in tooth loss as the tissues and bone are gradually destroyed. Periodontitis, which is advanced gum disease, may require surgery to preserve your teeth and your oral health.
When Dr. Aiello uses the dental laser to complete the LANAP procedure, there is no longer a need for surgery. The laser combines light and heat to direct a precise beam that can eliminate diseased tissues. It also sterilizes the area, which promotes tissue regeneration and accelerates the healing process.
Dr. Aiello is one of only two dentists in the Detroit, MI area that is certified by the Institute for Advanced Laser Technology to use the PerioLase dental laser for LANAP procedures. He is proud to offer this innovative technology to his periodontal patients because it not only eliminates the need for invasive surgery, it’s also more comfortable.
