LANAP® Laser Treatment in The Woodlands, TX


LANAP Laser Treatment The Woodlands, TX Periodontal disease is an active infection that can release toxins into the blood stream, which may adversely affect other medical conditions. Periodontal disease symptoms in early stages include bleeding gums and inflammation. It will then progress to loose and shifting teeth and eventually, loss of tooth and bone. It is important not to delay gum disease treatment. The Woodlands periodontist Dr. Gayle Bradshaw offers a laser treatment for periodontal disease.

Laser Gum Disease Treatment

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a laser gum surgery that provides an alternative gum disease treatment in The Woodlands. Traditional surgery was previously the recommended solution for periodontal disease but now LANAP® offers our patients successful results with less pain and less sensitivity.

The Process of Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Dr. Gayle Bradshaw will first evaluate the depth of your periodontal pockets and any loss of attachment before beginning the laser treatment for periodontal disease. The pulsed light of the laser is used to selectively eliminate any diseased tissue or the bacteria that causes periodontal disease. During this minimally invasive gum disease treatment in The Woodlands, the laser differentiates between healthy and diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact

The next step in this gum disease treatment at The Woodlands is to use ultrasonic scalers to remove calculus deposits. The laser is utilized again to create a biologic band-aid which is a sterilized blood clot. This clot serves to seal off the environment, protecting it from bacteria while healing. Dr. Bradshaw will press gum tissue back into place and then conduct a final evaluation of your teeth and eliminate any high spots.
