Drs. Gregg Codelli and Sadja Gaud of Solid City Smiles use the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) to perform laser gum surgery. For many people in Atlanta, gum surgery carries many negative connotations. LANAP laser dentistry, however, is a new kind of surgery. There are no blades or sutures required. LANAP laser dentistry is able to distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue, thus leaving the healthy tissue intact. The result is less pain and a shorter recovery time. For patients in Atlanta, gum surgery no longer has to be avoided.
When gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to more serious conditions. These include heart disease, cancer, diabetes and more. This means that for patients, gum surgery is a necessity. Our periodontists at Solid City Smiles in Atlanta, GA are certified to perform the LANAP laser dentistry procedure. LANAP can rid your mouth of dangerous bacteria without the need for cutting and stitching.
The secret to LANAP is the PerioLase® MVP-7™. This is a highly intelligent laser that can distinguish healthy tissue from diseased tissue. The laser emits a wavelength that only affects diseased gum tissue due to a variance in the color. What this means is that for patients in Atlanta, gum surgery no longer involves the cutting away of healthy tissue. Therefore there is less pain and less discomfort. LANAP is often able to save teeth that would have previously needed extraction. If saving teeth and removing harmful bacteria is important to you, LANAP is something you should consider.
Until now the majority of the treatment options available were invasive and painful. LANAP is minimally invasive and does not require the cutting or stitching of the gums! The day has arrived where gum surgery no longer means pain and discomfort.
