If you have periodontal disease, you need treatment. Periodontal disease is progressive and if neglected, can cause bad breath, receding gums, tooth loss, and the degradation of your jaw bone. There are, however, numerous effective treatments available, from antibiotic therapy and deep cleanings to gum surgery. Dr. Thomas A. Bissell offers laser gum disease treatment in Chester, NJ to provide a more comfortable alternative to traditional gum surgery. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) utilizes laser technology to successfully treat your periodontal disease without the use of scalpels or sutures.

What to know about LANAP

LANAP® is performed with the PerioLase® MVP-7™ and is an FDA cleared protocol for the treatment of gum disease. Laser treatment has been shown to reduce healing time, lessen the likelihood of gum recession often caused by traditional surgery, and minimize bleeding. In addition, there are no contraindications for this procedure which means that nearly anyone is a good candidate for LANAP®, even those patients who are precluded from traditional gum surgery due to medical conditions or prescription medications.
