LANAP Laser Dentistry Sunnyvale

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP)

Sunnyvale Dr. Nasser Antonious

LANAP is break-through technology that treats gum disease (periodontitis) and can even reverse the long-term damage caused by years of gum infection. Periodontitis causes your gum tissue to detach from your teeth, forming deep pockets between your gum tissue and jaw bone. These difficult (or impossible) to clean pockets usually become infected, and that infection spreads to the bone. The bone erodes, which is alarming because you need that bone to secure and protect your teeth. If you loose too much bone, you lose your surrounding teeth too. Sunnyvale dentist Dr. Nasser Antonious prevents that from happening with LANAP.

 

LANAP is a patented laser with a very unique wavelength. In the hands of trained Sunnyvale dentist Dr. Nasser Antonious, LANAP selectively removes infected tissue and infected bone, without damaging any of the healthy bone. More importantly, LANAP stimulates the regrowth of bone and connective gum tissue. In other words, if you have deep, disease-harboring pockets of detached gums, and eroded, infected bone underneath, Sunnyvale dentist Dr. Nasser Antonious might be able to use LANAP to eliminate the infection, revitalize and reattach your gums, close those dangerous pockets, and regrow your bone back to its former healthy thickness–all without cutting anything! Traditional periodontitis treatment involves cutting away some gum tissue, healthy and diseased together, grafting bone in the diminished area, and sewing it up with a gum tissue graft. With his LANAP laser and a lot of training, Sunnyvale dentist Dr. Nasser Antonious can restore you without invasive surgery.
