The LANAP Protocol

LANAP is a revolutionary protocol that can regenerate bone lost to gum disease. The treatment has proven highly successful in treating gum disease due to its ability to target the source of the inflammation without affecting healthy tissue. This technology can reduce the periodontal pocket depth and correct the attachment loss between the tooth and gum, without the need for scalpel or sutures.

Patients report a more positive experience with LANAP, compared to gum disease treatment with traditional tools. Benefits of LANAP protocol include:

  • Increased comfort
  • Minimal post-treatment sensitivity
  • Little downtime

Experiencing LANAP in Valparaiso and Highland

LANAP periodontal surgery is usually completed in two separate visits over the course of a few weeks, with one side your smile treated at each visit. First, any loose teeth are stabilized with splints if necessary and one side of your mouth will be treated. This allows you full function of one side of your mouth while allowing the other heals. Recovery is faster than with traditional gum surgery; patients who undergo the LANAP treatment at our Highland and Valparaiso periodontal office generally return to their normal activities quickly.

AS LANAP is a surgical procedure, you can expect some discomfort, which is usually relieved with Ibuprofen. There may be some discoloration of the gums immediately after the surgery, but this is normal.

Our dentists have special training and experience with this protocol and have chosen to incorporate it into our dental practice to serve patients to our best abilities. With this technology, we are able to tailor your treatment plan according to your individual needs. Successful treatment outcomes are important to us; we monitor you closely during the recovery phase of your procedure and at subsequent check-ups.

With two offices for assisted gum surgery in Highland and Valparaiso, we are able to provide convenient treatment. We accept direct patients and referrals. If you are in need of gum surgery and want to experience LANAP for yourself, call the Periodontal Group today.
