Have you recently received a diagnosis of periodontitis? Are you worried about the future of your smile? If you have experienced an infection of the teeth and gums, you are probably well aware of the implications of poor oral health habits. Fortunately, at Argyle Family Dental of Centennial, Colorado, Dr. Ava Khodakhast can help. She provides a judgment-free zone and educates patients on the treatment options available to reel in the infection and bring their smiles back to health. She has invested in some of the latest technologies to do so, including the LANAP procedure.
LANAP is an acronym for laser-assisted new attachment procedure. This minimally invasive dental treatment provides an alternative to traditional periodontal surgery, making it an excellent option for those who want to avoid more extensive and expensive treatments. The procedure focuses on removing bacteria from the periodontal pockets of infection in the gums and then sealing them back with the laser. By doing this, Dr. Ava Khodakhast can reduce inflammation and pain quickly and effectively. Additionally, the laser’s ability to seal the gum tissue helps to reduce post-operative discomfort and shorten recovery time. LANAP is an excellent solution for those looking for improved oral health without having to go through major surgery.
Our team walks patients through the procedure so they know what to expect during their gum treatment. First, patients must have a thorough dental examination so Dr. Ava Khodakhast can assess the extent of the infection and determine if the laser-assisted new attachment procedure is suitable for them. If it is, she will then use a Periolase /LANAP to remove bacteria from periodontal pockets and seal the gums back together with the same tool. This minimally invasive procedure also provides periodontal regeneration to strengthen the smile with bone and tissue regrowth. Because the treatment uses a specialized laser, it has less bleeding and swelling compared to more invasive, traditional gum surgery procedures as well as scaling and root planing. When considering your options, we may advise you to consider the LANAP treatment as a way of treating the issue while improving the smile and experiencing fewer side effects.
