Laser Dentistry To Treat Advanced Gum Disease

In most cases of moderate to severe periodontal disease, Red Bank dentists Dr. Allan Ruda and Dr. Beth DeAngelis recommend laser periodontal surgery. Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a state-of-the-art procedure that removes inflamed or diseased tissue in a manner that does not disturb the teeth, bone, or healthy tissue.

LANAP® is a method of laser periodontal surgery that has been proven safe and effective enough to receive clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Dr. Ruda and Dr. DeAngelis are part of a select group of dental professionals who have undergone the rigorous training and certification process required to become license practitioners of LANAP®.

The Benefits of LANAP®:

  • Minimal Pain – LANAP® does not use scalpels to cut and remove tissue from the gum line. Instead, a highly sophisticated laser is used to vaporize and remove infected tissue in a minimally painful manner.
  • Less Bleeding – In addition to the absence of scalpels and other cutting instruments, LANAP® can actually cauterize your wounds and minimize any bleeding that may occur.
  • Less Recession – While traditional periodontal surgery can require large amounts of tissue removal, LANAP® helps to preserve the gum line and minimize the occurrence of recession resulting from treatment.
  • Faster Healing – The preservation of healthy tissue and the stimulation of bone and tissue regrowth allow LANAP® a quicker healing time than traditional periodontal surgery.
  • Long Term Success – Dr. Ruda and Dr. DeAngelis can use the laser to promote regrowth in areas that have been damaged by periodontal disease. This means that there is a reduced chance that tooth or bone loss will occur.
