IS LANAP LAER THERAPY BETTER?
Your procedure won’t require incisions, stitches, scalpels, etc. Plus, the laser is as thin as approximately three human hairs!
Experience less pain, swelling, bleeding, sensitivity, and gum loss. LANAP also reduces the risk of post-op infections.
Don’t put your life on hold! Most patients can head back to work following the appointment.
No need for bone or tissue grafts. LANAP helps regenerate new bone and gum tissue previously lost to periodontitis.
Your smile will still look natural afterward because LANAP won’t remove or reconstruct healthy gum tissue.
The laser technology will protect your smile from harmful side effects of gum disease, including further infection, tooth loss, gum recession, and bone loss.
Throughout the years, Dr. Raval has always met me with professionalism and a smile. I truly enjoy visiting him because the customer service is top-notch! I’ll continue to have Dr. Raval care for my implant and any other specialized dentistry I may need in the future.

FAQ ABOUT LANAP
Answered by our expert periodontal specialists.
- Who is a candidate for LANAP?
If you have moderate to severe gum disease, you may be a candidate for this non-surgical gum disease treatment.
To confirm, schedule a consultation with our periodontists.
- Is LANAP safe?
Yes! LANAP is FDA-approved and can only be performed by LANAP-trained dentists like ours.
There’s no risk of radiation or interaction with other medications. The high-tech laser only interacts with harmful bacteria and vaporizes diseased tissue.
LANAP will remove tartar and plaque from your tooth without harming the healthy tissue. Then, it’ll create a seal and help your body naturally regenerate bone and gum tissue.
- Is laser gum surgery painful?
LANAP therapy doesn’t hurt!
We won’t need to use scalpels and sutures, which are the primary cause of pain associated with periodontal surgery.
We’ll numb your gum tissue to prevent any discomfort during the treatment.
After the procedure, you’ll experience less pain, swelling, sensitivity, and bleeding than traditional periodontal surgery. Healing is also faster and more comfortable.
Following the treatment, your gums may feel a bit tender. If it becomes uncomfortable, you can take over-the-counter medication.
If you’re still concerned about it being painful, ask us about sedation dentistry. It’ll help ease your nerves during your appointment.
- How long does It take to recover from LANAP?
We’ll complete your treatment in two 90-minute appointments. Right after your visits, you can get back to your day with little tenderness or discomfort.
Most patients recover in 24 hours, which is much faster than traditional gum surgery. It usually takes two to four weeks to recover from periodontal surgery.
- How much does LANAP cost?
The cost of LANAP varies from patient to patient. However, LANAP treatment is comparable in cost to traditional periodontal surgery.
In fact, it may be more economical due to the quick recovery and healing time.
Additionally, we accept multiple payment options. For an exact quote, schedule a consultation for LANAP laser therapy.
- Will LANAP save my teeth?
LANAP therapy is the only laser gum treatment that’s FDA cleared for True Regeneration™.
It’s proven to save teeth by re-growing tissues and bone that was previously lost to gum disease.
LANAP helps you avoid tooth extractions and consequent procedures to replace missing teeth, like dental implants.
However, it’s best to get treated with LANAP as soon as possible to save your teeth.
