Here is How LAR, LANAP, and LAPIP Can Save Teeth and Gums
Laser gum surgery has changed the game for many of the most important and needed periodontal treatments. Some of the names like LAR, LANAP, and LAPIP might not be the easiest to remember but their value to you if required is undisputed. At Farber Center for Periodontics and Dental Implants, we offer our patients the most effective treatments available and believe strongly in patient education. Also, because we want to provide the best laser gum surgery Long Island has to offer, we maintain advanced equipment and facilities in both our Hauppauge and Medford, NY, offices.
When it comes to laser dental procedures, for you as a patient, very likely one of the most attractive features is a less invasive and more comfortable periodontal surgical experience. But from the standpoint of saving your teeth, there are other significantly beneficial advantages. Many times gum disease and the infections that are a part of it have caused loss of gingival (gum) tissue and the underlying jaw bone. That’s when LAR, which stands for Laser-Assisted Regeneration, becomes crucial. The PerioLase MVP-7 dental laser at Farber Center is part of the only FDA-cleared procedure to regenerate bone and reattach gums that have separated from teeth. The potential value of the LAR protocol in saving your teeth is difficult to overestimate.
LANAP Laser Surgery Will Help Restore Your Oral Health
Farber Center is one of Long Island’s leading holistic dentists, which means we restore and maintain your oral health with an awareness of it’s vital connections to your whole-body health. Laser Assisted New Attachment Protocol (LANAP) is a highly effective gum surgery for clearing oral infections and preserving your teeth as well as saving the jawbone beneath. During a LANAP procedure, diseased areas are laser treated to achieve several important outcomes. First and most important is bone regrowth if there has been a loss. Then the PerioLase MVP-7 can be directed to periodontal pockets to kill bacteria and eliminate an infection. Finally, the laser treatment will cause your gums to reattach to teeth and seal the area against future disease.
Another significant benefit with LANAP treatment is the preservation of healthy gum tissue. Unlike earlier methods, it minimizes tissue loss during surgery, which is also very helpful. Patients perceive faster recovery times with less discomfort — which means less time away from work and other essential life activities. During and after treatment, there is less bleeding, and general discomfort, and the procedure is faster than many other options. Traditional cut-and-sew methods had been something patients dreaded and put off, and now those rightful anxieties have been overcome with newer and better choices. Once your treatment is concluded, proper and frequent brushing and flossing can help maintain healthy teeth and gums for years to come.
The LAPIP Laser Gum Surgical Protocol Can Save Infected Dental Implants
Advanced laser surgery can heal your gums and save any dental implants that have become infected. If you have puffiness or discomfort anywhere around your implants, head to Farber Center to have them checked out. If you indeed have a gingival infection near an implant in need of treatment, the Laser Assisted Peri-Implant Protocol (LAPIP) could be a good option for you. In much the same way that the PerioLase MVP-7 works to save natural teeth, it can help restore bone and reattach gums to an implant. If you’re prone to periodontal disease, having regular check-ups and treating any issues early and before they become significant is of paramount importance. Preserving your smile and a firm bite is too essential to overlook proper care.
No matter whether or not you’re saving natural teeth or preserving dental implants, advanced laser gum surgery from Farber Center is a comfortable alternative to traditional methods — and produces effective results. If you’re investigating different providers, not all Long Island periodontists and dentists are alike. We go out of our way to offer patients a wide range of treatment options and have in-house state-of-the-art equipment like the PerioLase MVP-7. It is all part of our commitment to providing the most effective care with a minimum of discomfort and downtime. Periodontal and gingival surgeries are essential to oral and whole-body health. We try to make them less invasive and more comfortable in as many ways as we can.
