PerioLase Nd:YAG Laser – The PerioLase is the only laser designed for LANAP protocol and LAPIP protocol. LANAP, or Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, and LAPIP, or Laser-Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure, are procedures that treats periodontal (gum) disease and peri-implantitis (bone loss around a dental implant) with the use of a highly specialized Nd:YAG laser. This laser is used to remove the infected and dead tissue of the gums around the roots of the teeth or dental implants, while not only leaving the healthy, live tissue safe, but also stimulating it to regenerate.
LANAP and LAPIP are one of the newest and most advanced procedures for the treatment of gum disease and bone loss around a dental implants, and its precision and effectiveness is quickly making it one of the most notable advances in periodontics. Patients undergoing LANAP or LAPIP, in comparison to more traditional treatments, can typically expect:
- less post-procedure discomfort
- less inflammation and bleeding during and after the procedure
- less swelling following the procedure
- a more aesthetic appearance of the gums after the procedure
- a faster rate of healing and gum re-growth
