The LANAP® Protocol

The LANAP® Protocol Laser Gum Surgery

With seven locations throughout Rochester, the periodontists at Progressive Implantology & Periodontics offer laser gum surgery with The LANAP Protocol. Did you know that research has linked serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some forms of cancer and rheumatoid arthritis with gum disease? Don’t let gum disease compromise your overall health for fear of traditional scalpel and suture gum surgery. For many patients, laser gum surgery is an effective, less invasive and more affordable way to treat gum disease.

The LANAP Protocol is a patient-friendly, minimally invasive laser alternative to traditional gum surgery using PerioLase™—the only laser designed specifically for laser periodontal therapy or the treatment of gum disease. This treatment removes diseased or inflamed soft tissue by gently passing a laser between the gums and teeth.

Many patients find LANAP treatment to be patient-friendly because:

  • It is virtually painless with few post-operative complications.
  • It often offers a significantly reduced recovery time and patient-friendly clinical results
  • It typically requires just one or two visits to complete treatment, compared to the typical four visits (plus additional follow up appointments) for traditional gum surgery.
