Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP (as it more commonly called), is revolutionizing today’s treatment of periodontal disease. LANAP uses a specialized laser to destroy the bacteria which cause periodontal disease. Dr. Breiterman is proud to offer the very latest in treatment options, especially when it provides such outstanding benefits for his patients. With LANAP, it is now possible to treat gum disease with virtually no pain, swelling or bleeding. PerioLase is the only laser designed specifically, patented and FDA approved for this procedure. PerioLase targets and destroys only diseased tissue and harmful bacteria associated with periodontal disease creating an environment conducive to regenerating diseased bone and actually allowing for new bone regeneration and tissue attachment.

Fear of the discomfort associated with more traditional methods for treatment keeps many of the almost 66% of Americans who have some type of gum disease from seeking treatment. LANAP enables treatment that is just as effective and even more beneficial for the patient in terms of healing times and results. Also, laser treatment is usually less expensive than comparable treatment with more invasive cut-and-stitch methods.
