We are one of the few practices in the region certified to perform Non Surgical Laser Gum Therapy (LANAP) alternatives to gum surgery.
LANAP – Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure
Dr. Blum is one of the few licensed and certified dentists in the region to implement this revolutionary alternative to more invasive traditional gum surgery. LANAP is the first and only FDA approved laser-based treatment for gum disease.
The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) uses a soft tissue laser to kill bacteria and diseased tissues, leaving healthy gum tissue intact to heal naturally. In cases of bone loss, it also helps to stimulate bone regeneration–the only procedure that can do this. Overall, the LANAP procedure is safer, more organic, and less invasive than traditional gum surgery. LANAP makes it more possible to save and restore to health teeth that may otherwise need to be extracted. LANAP can restore your whole mouth to health, reducing your body’s susceptibility to the serious health problems associated with gum disease.
