To begin the process, you’ll need to come to Consultants in Dental Aesthetics for a consultation with Dr. Mary Ann Landry. She will assess your mouth and determine if LANAP is the right choice for treating your gum disease.
If she approves, Dr. Landry will schedule your treatment right away. Similarly to a deep cleaning, LANAP is usually done in two appointments, scheduled one week apart. One half of the mouth is completed during each visit.
LANAP uses a special soft tissue laser that kills diseased, damaged gum tissue. This laser wavelength also kills any bacteria present in the area, and creates blood clots near the gums to encourage proper healing. Dr. Landry may also reshape and alter the gums slightly to ensure they heal properly.
