Painless Treatment for Periodontal Disease- The LANAP Advantage

Periodontal Disease

Are you or a loved one suffering from periodontal disease? The discomfort, pain, and potential complications of this condition can be overwhelming. Thankfully, there's a cutting-edge solution available that promises effective treatment without the typical pain associated with traditional methods. Welcome to the world of LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), where precision meets painlessness. In this blog, we will delve into the LANAP advantage, why it's a game-changer in periodontal treatment, and why Sachar Dental NYC is the best choice for your dental care in New York City.

LANAP Laser Surgery for Periodontal Disease

What is LANAP Surgery?

LANAP, short for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is a revolutionary method for treating periodontal disease. It is a minimally invasive, FDA-approved laser therapy that targets and eliminates the bacteria and infected tissue in the gums while preserving healthy tissue. The LANAP technique utilizes the PerioLase MVP-7 laser, which is specifically designed for precision and patient comfort.

Why would I need LANAP Surgery?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common condition that affects the tissues surrounding your teeth. It can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and even systemic health issues if left untreated. LANAP surgery becomes necessary when traditional periodontal treatments, such as scaling and root planing, aren't sufficient to manage the disease. LANAP offers a more effective and comfortable alternative.

What are the goals of LANAP Surgery?

LANAP surgery aims to achieve several key objectives:


Eliminate Bacteria: The laser targets and removes the bacteria and infected tissue responsible for gum disease.

Promote Healing: LANAP stimulates the body's natural healing response, encouraging the regeneration of healthy gum tissue.

Minimize Discomfort: LANAP is virtually painless compared to traditional gum surgery, making it a more comfortable experience for patients.

Preserve Teeth: By preserving healthy tissue and promoting tissue regeneration, LANAP helps save teeth that might otherwise be lost to gum disease.

How is LANAP Surgery done?

LANAP surgery is a precise and minimally invasive procedure. Here's a brief overview of the process:


Anesthesia: A local anesthetic is administered to ensure a pain-free experience.

Laser Treatment: The PerioLase MVP-7 laser is used to remove bacteria and diseased tissue from the gums.

Debridement: The laser helps remove calculus (tartar) from the root surfaces.

Clot Formation: The laser is used again to stimulate the tissue and encourage clot formation, which aids in healing.

Closure: The tissue is compressed against the tooth's surface, creating a stable and secure seal.

How Long Does LANAP Surgery Take?

The duration of LANAP surgery varies depending on the severity of the gum disease and the number of teeth being treated. However, most LANAP procedures can be completed in just a few hours, making it a convenient option for busy individuals.

Why is LANAP Surgery Superior to Traditional Periodontal Surgery?

Traditional periodontal surgery often involves scalpels and sutures, resulting in post-operative pain, swelling and a longer recovery period. LANAP surgery, on the other hand, offers several advantages:


Minimally Invasive: LANAP is less traumatic to the gums and surrounding tissues.

Minimal Swelling: Significantly less swelling than traditional periodontal surgery

Painless: Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during and after the procedure.

Faster Recovery: LANAP allows for quicker healing and less downtime.

Preservation of Healthy Tissue: LANAP selectively targets diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact.

What is the Benefit of LANAP Surgery?


The primary benefit of LANAP surgery is improved periodontal health with minimal pain and discomfort. Patients can expect:


Reduction in gum disease symptoms

Preservation of natural teeth

Faster healing and recovery

Minimal bleeding and swelling

How Much Does LANAP Surgery Cost in NYC?

The cost of LANAP surgery can vary based on the complexity of the case and other factors. It's best to consult with a LANAP-certified dentist at Sachar Dental NYC for a personalized assessment and cost estimate. Keep in mind that while LANAP may have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional surgery, the long-term benefits and reduced discomfort make it a worthwhile investment.

Does Dental Insurance Cover LANAP Surgery?

Dental insurance coverage for LANAP surgery can vary depending on your provider and policy. Many dental insurance plans offer some level of coverage for periodontal procedures, including LANAP. Our team at Sachar Dental NYC can assist you in navigating your insurance coverage and maximizing your benefits.
