The Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is a popular option for treating gum disease because of its minimally invasive nature and high success rate. If you’re looking for a highly qualified, highly experienced periodontist, go no farther than Dr. Joseph Nemeth. He’s a LANAP veteran who’s helped countless patients improve their oral health. In this article, we will address some of the most often asked concerns concerning LANAP and feature Dr. Nemeth’s knowledge and experience in this field.

What is LANAP, You Ask?

With LANAP, a specifically tailored laser is used to ablate diseased gum tissue and stimulate the formation of healthy gum and bone surrounding the teeth. It is an efficient method of treating gum disease with minimal discomfort to the patient.

Compared to Conventional Gum Surgery, How Does LANAP Differ?

The standard procedure for removing diseased tissue from the gums requires cutting and suturing the gums, which can be a traumatic and painful experience for individuals. However, LANAP employs a laser to eradicate the diseased tissue, which is less invasive and, hence, more comfortable for the patient.

Is LANAP Uncomfortable?

The majority of LANAP patients report less pain and suffering after the procedure than they did after standard gum surgery. There is a possibility, however, that some minor discomfort and swelling will follow the treatment. For a speedy and trouble-free recovery, Dr. Joseph Nemeth and his staff will provide in-depth post-operative care recommendations.

What is the Approximate Time Frame for a LANAP Operation?

The amount of time required to cure gum disease and the number of teeth affected will determine how long the surgery takes. Yet, LANAP procedures often only require one visit.

Are Insurance Companies Required to Pay for LANAP?

Many dental insurance plans will cover all or most of the cost of LANAP, though coverage will vary from policy to policy. The office staff of Dr. Nemeth has years of experience in verifying insurance coverage and guiding patients through the insurance maze so that they can get the most out of their coverage.

What are the Advantages of LANAP?

Compared to traditional gum surgery, LANAP has various advantages for patients, including less discomfort, less blood, and a quicker recovery period. Due to the procedure’s accuracy and minimum invasion, less harm is done to healthy tissue. In addition to assisting in the avoidance of tooth loss, LANAP can also boost general oral health and well-being.

Can I Benefit From LANAP?

LANAP could be an effective method of treatment if gum disease has been diagnosed. Get your teeth and gums in the best shape possible with the aid of Dr. Nemeth and his staff. LANAP is an excellent option for people dealing with gum disease because of its minimally invasive nature and high success rate.
