What you can expect with Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) ?

If you have just been diagnosed with a periodontal disease (commonly referred to as gum disease) Dr. Cifuni may recommend this treatment for you.  Approximately 80% of the population struggles with this disease.  We are excited to provide you with the latest method of treatment!
Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is a relatively painless procedure. Most patients experience little to no discomfort compared to conventional periodontal treatments. In fact, you can expect to return to work the day after surgery.

Dr. Cifuni’s primary concern is for your comfort and safety. We will prescribe antibiotics to prevent the possibility of infection and to take Motrin (ibuprofen) to control micro-inflammation and swelling. You will start taking both medications the day before surgery.
One of the contributing factors of periodontal disease is trauma from tooth to tooth contact; therefore we will require you to sleep with a night guard. It may also be necessary to make minor adjustments to your teeth so that they all function equally (bite together with an even amount of force).

Periodontal disease is a chronic infection. LANAP is an excellent treatment but is not a cure. THERE IS NO CURE FOR PERIODONTAL DISEASE. The goal of LANAP is to reverse some of the effects of the disease and to help you maintain a healthy mouth and achieve long-term stability.
Some of the primary benefits of LANAP laser surgery as compared to traditional cut-and-sew surgery are:
  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Less sensitivity
  • Less gum loss
  • Less swelling
  • Very little downtime after treatment
  • Less Post-op infections
  • Promotes regeneration of supporting gum tissues
  • Healing is perceived to be faster and more comfortable than conventional surgery

Your home care is also very important. We will make certain recommendations regarding your home care custom fit to your mouth. This will include an antibacterial mouth rinse, Rotadent toothbrush, and/or Hydrofloss waterpic. We cannot stress enough the importance of good daily hygiene habits. In addition, we will continue to schedule three-month maintenance appointments with one of our hygienists.
By continuing this partnership, we will help you to treat this serious disease. Our goal at Epic is to assist you with obtaining the best care for your mouth and to preserve overall health.
