How Does LANAP Work?
He then uses a special laser called the PerioLase MVP-7 to eradicate unhealthy tissue while leaving healthy tissue in place and intact. Tiny ultrasonic scalers are then used to remove calculus deposits from below the gum line, and a seal is formed around the teeth, creating a stable healing environment around the affected areas.
Dr. Yoshida then recompresses the tissue against the roots’ surfaces and makes adjustments to your bite as needed.
LANAP laser gum surgery is usually done in two visits of about two hours each, but it can be done in a single session upon request. Dr. Yoshida will probably ask you to come back a week later for a follow-up visit to check the results.
Since there’s minimal discomfort with LANAP, most patients report no problems returning to work the very next day.
