LANAP Laser Periodontal Procedures

Comfortable Gum Disease Treatment Using Laser Dentistry to Provide Faster Return to Oral Health

Modern Solution to a Common Oral Health Problem – Gum Disease

Over 50% of American adults have gum disease – an infection below the gum line. Gum disease is a progressive oral problem, with the potential to create serious effects that include bone deterioration, gum recession and devastating tooth loss. It is also linked to several health problems – from heart disease, stroke, diabetes and pre-term babies. Utilizing the body’s own natural ability to “heal itself”, Dr. Morelli utilizes the PerioLase™ for the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®). Performed without a scalpel and sutures, LANAP creates an environment for regeneration of the tissues around your teeth that are lost due to periodontal disease.
