Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is a treatment used with the Periolase laser system. This type of Laser Gum Surgery in Dubai is used by the American Dental Clinic

for patients who have a fear associated with conventional surgery, because LANAP does not involve incisions to be made with a scalpel, no sutures, and less post-operative discomfort.

When a Dentist in Dubai discovers a patient with the periodontal disease or chronic food impaction or gum inflammation, LANAP is used to allow the gums to re-attach to the tooth. The laser creates access for the dentist to deep clean the depths of the tooth pocket, kills the bacteria which has taken-up residence in the bone, allows the bone regenerate and gum tissue to re-attach to the teeth.

Some of the notable benefits of LANAP are less time in the dental chair, use of more advanced, precision technology, less gum recession, many teeth can be saved and faster post-operative recovery.

Before this new innovative technique in dental history was developed, dentists would perform Gum Surgery in Dubai by cutting the gum away from the bone, re-contouring the bone, and in packing artificial bone into the socket before stitching the gums together. This procedure is no doubt a painful and a very uncomfortable option. But with LANAP it is much less invasive and the recovery is painless. This technique also eliminates the need for removable dentures.

Is LANAP Painful?

LANAP Laser Periodontal Surgery is painless. However, some dentists will anesthetize a patient to provide ultimate comfort during the treatment of gum disease. The post procedure discomfort lasts only for a short time as well.

Does LANAP cure gum disease completely?

The LANAP procedure does not cure gum disease completely, but it does destroy the bacteria-infected tissue and removes all disease-causing bacteria from the mouth. The gum tissue can then regenerate and restore the connective tissue forming the periodontal ligament, the teeth and gums to protect against re-infection.
Post care and steps that need to be taken to reduce the risk of periodontal disease includes,

  • Following a good oral hygiene routine of brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash
  • Following a healthy diet
  • Using a soft toothbrush that will not irritate or injure the gums and damage the tooth enamel.
  • Regular dental checkups for cleaning and checking for symptoms of gum disease or periodontitis

What is the length of the Laser Gum Treatment?

The length of the treatment will depend on how severe the periodontal disease is. Some patients may only need one visit while for others it may take a few more visits to the Dentist in Abu Dhabi for treatment. The dentist will discuss the LANAP procedure with you prior to the treatment to answering any questions you may have about the treatment and the costs.

Is LANAP expensive?
