Dr. Oshidar and Dr. Rodrigeuz attended another LANAP training last month in Cerritos California furthering their ongoing education about the only process that regenerates bone.

LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is the newest innovation in treating gum disease, allowing for the targeted removal of diseased periodontal tissue without removing any surrounding healthy tissue. After the laser is used to remove the infection, the dentist then makes a second pass to eliminate any remaining bacteria which then jumpstarts the regeneration process.

The use of LANAP boosts the growth of healthy replacement tissue, since it relies on True Regeneration – not resection – to restore oral health. Since the process is minimally invasive, the body can heal from the chronic infection faster than it can post-surgery.

There are several benefits to the LANAP vs. traditional surgery, including:
• Minimally invasive – no sutures or bone grafts are needed
• The gum height surrounding the affected area is preserved
• Decreased post-operative discomfort such as swelling, bleeding and sensitivity
• Less follow-up appointments are required

We are so excited to offer LANAP at Roselle Park Dental! Learn more on our Website or call us today to find out if LANAP is right for you.
