LANAP stands for “Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure”.

At Sachar Dental NYC, we are proud to offer the new LANAP laser surgery as a cutting-edge treatment for periodontal disease. Our LANAP surgery specialist, Dr. Cohen, has extensive training and experience in performing LANAP surgery. LANAP surgery can be instrumental in promoting oral health and providing the highest quality care for periodontal disease. Below you will find extensive information about LANAP surgery and its benefits.

What is LANAP Surgery?

By utilizing a specialized dental laser, LANAP targets and eliminates bacteria and infected tissue, promoting gum tissue regeneration and attachment to the tooth surface.

Why would I need LANAP Surgery?

Patients experiencing symptoms of periodontal disease, such as gum inflammation, bleeding, or persistent bad breath, may benefit from LANAP surgery. LANAP surgery effectively treats moderate to severe periodontal disease and can help save teeth that might otherwise be lost due to gum infection.

What are the goals of LANAP Surgery?

The primary goals of LANAP surgery are to eliminate periodontal disease, preserve the natural teeth, and promote gum tissue regeneration. By eradicating bacteria and infected tissue, LANAP surgery helps restore oral health, reduces gum pocket depth, and promotes the reattachment of gum tissue to the tooth surface.

How is LANAP Surgery done?

During LANAP surgery at Sachar Dental NYC, Dr. Cohen will use the dental laser to gently remove bacteria and infected tissue from your gum pockets. The laser also stimulates blood clot formation, seals the gum tissue, and promotes regeneration. The procedure is minimally invasive and results in minimal discomfort and downtime.

How Long Does LANAP Surgery take?

The duration of LANAP surgery varies depending on the extent of your periodontal disease and the number of affected areas. Typically, LANAP surgery can be completed in one to four sessions, with each session lasting approximately two hours. Our compassionate team will ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Can I do multiple areas of LANAP on the same day?

In most cases, we can perform LANAP surgery on multiple quadrants of your mouth on the same day. This efficient approach minimizes the number of visits required and allows for comprehensive treatment in a shorter time frame, while still ensuring your comfort and safety.

What are alternatives to LANAP Surgery?

While LANAP surgery is a highly effective treatment for periodontal disease, there are alternative options available. Traditional periodontal surgery, such as gum flap surgery, may be recommended for certain cases. However, it's important to consult with our experienced dentists to determine the most suitable treatment for your specific needs.

Why is LANAP Surgery superior to traditional periodontal surgery?

LANAP surgery offers several advantages over traditional periodontal surgery. It is minimally invasive, resulting in less discomfort and faster healing times. LANAP also preserves more healthy gum tissue and promotes natural regeneration. With LANAP, you can experience effective treatment for periodontal disease with minimal disruption to your daily life.

What is the benefit of LANAP Surgery?

The benefits of LANAP surgery are numerous. LANAP effectively eliminates periodontal disease, reduces gum pocket depth, and helps save natural teeth that would otherwise be lost. Additionally, LANAP promotes gum tissue regeneration, leading to a healthier smile and improved oral health.

What are the long-term and short-term goals for LANAP Surgery?

In the short term, LANAP surgery aims to eliminate infection, reduce gum inflammation, and promote healing. Over the long term, the goals are to stabilize periodontal disease, prevent further bone loss, and maintain optimal oral health. Regular follow-up visits and good oral hygiene practices will help ensure the success of your LANAP treatment.

Who is a candidate for LANAP Surgery?

LANAP surgery is suitable for many patients with moderate to severe periodontal disease. However, it's best to schedule a consultation with our experienced dentists to determine if LANAP is the right treatment for your specific condition. Our team will evaluate your oral health and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

How much does LANAP Surgery cost in NYC?

The cost of LANAP surgery can vary depending on several factors, including the extent of your periodontal disease and the number of affected areas. During your consultation, we will provide you with a detailed cost estimate for your specific treatment plan. We strive to offer competitive pricing while delivering exceptional care. In most cases, the cost of LANAP surgery is $2,000 per area.

The cost of not doing LANAP surgery can far exceed the cost of the procedure. Untreated, periodontal disease often leads to bone loss and teeth that fall out. As periodontal disease progresses, the gums can recede, the jawbone can deteriorate, and teeth can fall out. Once periodontal disease progresses this far, patients will require more advanced oral surgery, and the need for dentures or dental implant surgery which can be much more expensive than LANAP surgery. Advanced periodontal disease can also lead to more serious, systemic health problems.

Does dental insurance cover LANAP Surgery?

Some PPO dental insurances will cover the cost of your periodontal surgery at 50-80%. Dental insurance coverage varies among providers and specific plans. Our knowledgeable team will gladly assist you in understanding your insurance coverage and help maximize your benefits. We work with various insurance plans to make your LANAP treatment as affordable as possible.

As always, at Sachar Dental NYC, we will call your insurance plan prior to your visit to determine if periodontal surgery is a covered service or not. We will also determine what your out-of-pocket costs will be. At the time your visit, you will only be responsible for your out-of-pocket costs.

Can I use flexible spending dollars or a medical savings account for these charges?
