Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP)

Laser assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP) is a FDA-approved, patented procedure used to treat periodontitis. The procedure uses a laser to remove the diseased tissue around the tooth. It is then used to promote the formation of a blood clot that seals in a sterile environment, which allows gum re-attachment, and bone regeneration. This treatment promotes both bone growth and tissue regeneration. For more information visit
