Dr. Thomas Mone is an experienced periodontist with special training in LANAP® and provides this gum disease treatment in Braintree, MA.
Q: How does LANAP® differ from traditional gum surgery?
A: LANAP® uses dental laser technology instead of a scalpel and sutures. With this gum surgery alternative, LANAP® patients typically experience minimal pain, less bleeding, and speedier healing than with traditional gum surgery.
Q: What other benefits are there with this laser gum surgery alternative?
A: LANAP® is a minimally invasive gum surgery alternative. Its conservative technique zaps away bacteria and diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. Patients typically experience less gum recession with LANAP® than with traditional surgery.
After removing the bacteria and diseased tissue, the laser promotes the formation of a fibrin clot between the remaining healthy tissue and tooth structure. This fibrin clot helps to seal the area and promotes quicker healing. More importantly, a new attachment between the gum tissue and tooth structure is formed. Studies have shown that LANAP® also promotes bone regeneration around the teeth.
Q: How can I be sure that the dental laser treatment is safe?
A: The PerioLase®MVP-7™ used for LANAP® is FDA cleared. Research backs its safety and success as a gum surgery alternative.
Q: How do I know if this gum surgery alternative is the right treatment for me?
A: The gum surgery alternative, LANAP®, is often the best treatment for patients with periodontal (gum) disease. However, it is important to have a thorough evaluation with an experienced periodontist that has had special training in LANAP®.
