Gum Disease Treatment With Less Pain & Faster Healing LANAP In Newport Beach, CA
Gum disease affects about half of all adults in the United States. However, its onset is often silent, with many people not even knowing they have it until they experience advanced symptoms.
If you are suffering from cosmetic or oral health problems due to gum disease, John B. Chrispens DDS & Associates offers a gentler solution than traditional gum surgery. The LANAP method is a less invasive laser treatment designed to regrow the tissues and bone lost to gum disease. LANAP stands for “Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure” and offers comfort advantages over gum flap surgery. With LANAP, Dr. John Chrispens not only cleans your teeth and roots, but encourages gum reattachment and healing.
Rated top periodontist in Orange County Magazine and with over 30 years of experience, Dr. John B. Chrispens is your Newport Beach expert in gum health and recovery.
How Does LANAP Work?
Traditional gum surgery is painful, invasive, and usually involves a lengthy healing time. LANAP causes little to no pain or gum recession, allowing patients to return more quickly to their normal lives. The laser is more exact, so less healthy tissue is damaged during treatment. LANAP also stimulates tissue regeneration, helping to reverse the effects of periodontal disease.
During your LANAP treatment at John B. Chrispens DDS and Associates, Dr. Chrispens will use a laser tool with a small probe attached to the tip to clean between the gum pockets and your teeth. This probe uses a powerful beam of light to quickly remove the diseased gum tissues. The laser also sanitizes your gum pockets, reducing inflammation and protecting your gums from infection.
Is LANAP The Right Choice For Your Smile?
You could be a candidate for LANAP if you have deep gum pockets or have symptoms of periodontal disease. Signs of periodontal disease can include:
- Receding gums
- Loosening teeth
- Bleeding gums
- Teeth that look “long”
- A change in your bite
Patients with moderate to severe gum disease are usually ideal candidates for LANAP. It is also an excellent option for patients who don’t want to put themselves through conventional oral surgery.
Patients who complete LANAP treatment can also experience less gum recession, which helps to improve their smile’s overall appearance.
