Discover a Gentler, Laser-Focused Treatment for Gum Disease

If you have been diagnosed with periodontitis, you may feel concerned about invasive surgery and a long recovery. With LANAP® laser treatment, you can receive remarkably effective care without cutting, stitching, or significant downtime.

What is LANAP®?

LANAP® stands for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure. It uses a specialized dental laser to remove diseased gum tissue and stimulate regeneration of healthy tissue and bone. The LANAP laser precisely targets and eliminates infection while preserving your natural tissues.

Benefits of LANAP® Laser Treatment

  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive

  • Little bleeding and discomfort

  • 98% success rate for stable results after 5 years

  • Can regrow lost bone without grafts

  • No sutures or stitches required

  • Much quicker recovery than conventional surgery

  • Only removes damaged tissue, protects healthy tissue

What Happens During LANAP Therapy

During your LANAP therapy, Dr Ratliff will direct the focused laser light below your gumline to eliminate diseased tissue and infection. Your teeth and roots, will be cleaned using hand interments and ultrasonics. Finally, the laser light will help form a clot in your gums to reduce pocket depth. The precision of LANAP allows healthy structures to remain intact.

LANAP is performed in the office with either local anesthesia or light sedation based on your needs. Most patients feel well enough to return to normal activity immediately afterward. Some over-the-counter pain medication is generally all that's needed during your swift recovery.

Contact our office today to learn more and see if you could benefit from LANAP laser treatment. Discover how this innovative approach can help you achieve a healthy, vibrant smile again.

Restore Your Dental Implants with LAPIP Laser Treatment

If you have been diagnosed with peri-implantitis, don't lose hope for your dental implants. LAPIP laser therapy offers a gentler, less invasive solution to treat gum disease around implants and preserve your oral health.

What is LAPIP?

LAPIP stands for Laser-Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure. It is a specialized application of dental laser technology designed explicitly to treat gum disease around implants.

How LAPIP Works

During LAPIP treatment, a calibrated dental laser is used to remove infected and inflamed tissue around your implant sites. The laser precisely targets only unhealthy tissue, leaving intact your healthy gums, bone, and implant surfaces. Your implant will also be thoroughly cleaned using hand instruments and ultrasonics. Finally, the laser will help form clots to reduce pocket depth for gum reattachment.

Benefits of LAPIP

  • Non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure

  • Removes diseased tissue while protecting healthy structures

  • Helps regenerate bone and gums around implants

  • Little pain or discomfort

  • Swift recovery with minimal downtime

  • Avoids more invasive conventional flap surgery

Discover Soothing Relief with Biostimulation Therapy

If you're dealing with injury, TMJ Pain, or irritation, innovative biostimulation therapy can provide healing support and soothing comfort. This cutting-edge approach uses therapeutic laser energy to reduce inflammation and accelerate your body's natural healing abilities.

What is Biostimulation?

Biostimulation applies low-level laser light directly to affected gum tissues. The targeted photonic energy gently penetrates below the surface to stimulate regeneration, promote drainage, and ease discomfort. This non-invasive treatment supports and activates your innate healing systems.

Is it Right for You?

Biostimulation can benefit patients struggling with:

  • Ongoing inflammation and pain

  • Recovery after periodontal procedures

Restore Health and Comfort to Your Gums

During your biostimulation session, a small handheld device is used to deliver therapeutic laser light to the specified area. The light penetrates tissue and is absorbed by cells, triggering positive biological reactions. This gentle photonic energy reduces inflammation, repairs tissue, and accelerates healing.

Patients often describe biostimulation as relaxing and soothing. You can return to your normal routine immediately after each non-invasive treatment.

If gum issues are causing you discomfort, biostimulation therapy can provide effective relief and support healing. Contact our office today to learn more about this innovative option for gum renewal.
